Tiny Toys

Once upon a time, my website was called SAN Gear. That was shut down by me after the end of iGoogle. This new site DACT is a Partial Restoration of the old and a place for new things for educational purpose.


Learn How to build iGoogle Widgets or mini Apps. Here are example gadgets i built to learn iGoogle Gadget making.

If you are the kinda chap or chip that likes stories, here is one, nearly true. When i started learning web-design i made a tutorial called Webbunny HTML Tutor. In this i built small web-gadgets like a Browser-in-Browser made of JS. A Midi JukeBox etc. This was in Y2K when a great deluge washed away many Freebies from the World Wide Web, the real cause being that listening to mp3 music became popular.

Then came Blogging, i made a Few Gadgets after i saw some DHTML animations inspired from DynamicDrive and a site called Excite. One was an Animated Gif spider going up and down the page on a thread, it was a hit at my blog. Then i made a Floating Midiplayer on a Freeamp skin from my webbunny tutor, which became a super-duper sensation.

When iGoogle came, i converted these examples in gadget form just for fun. These are the first few. I used have frequent hosting problems due to the load on some of the gadgets. My regular work got disrupted, then came Google Code Hosting to the rescue. Now these gadgets, the first i made, are the last to be put in google code. This set is not popular now, so it is an archive for students to study.
