Spreadsheet Widget

spreadsheetwidgetI’ve been looking for a spreadsheet widget for dashboard for along time, something to quickly blot without loading up a full spreadsheet like open office, excel or numbers. I was thinking of writing my own, but I’ve been trying not to program so much “pointless” stuff and focus on what really matters. This lead me to the idea of using Mac OSX’s webclip feature that lets you create a widget from any webpage.

I originally tried Google Docs with a public spreadsheet, but something went wrong with the javascript. A quick wikipedia and I discovered Zoho’s public spreadsheet. It worked great as you can see from the image!

If you found any of the software useful, please consider supporting its further developement by donating.

    Nice idea. By the way, check our Utility Spreadsheet Gadget at http://gadgets.zoho.com and our throwaway spreadsheet at http://sheet.zoho.com/scratch too.

    What a great idea! That made me think of other uses for this, like note taking etc.
