Putting It All Together

At this point, you should now have Shindig set up to host OpenSocial gadgets and understand the XML markup that is used as the foundation for defining those gadgets. You may have also installed Partuza to see the architecture of a full end-to-end social networking container. Let’s combine all of these lessons to create a real gadget using our Shindig installation and OpenSocial gadget knowledge.

We will integrate the following OpenSocial concepts and techniques in our gadget:

  • Building a gadget XML spec, including using views

  • Setting and getting user state information with user preferences

  • Building tabs using the OpenSocial tabs library

  • Displaying messages with the OpenSocial minimessage library
