I initially started making with widgets when I discovered Konfabulator for pc and mac, which is now called Yahoo Widgets. After switching over to a Mac Mini with Mac OS X 10.4, I decided to try my hand at making Dashboard widgets.

BomRadar Front BomRadar Front

This widget displays the Bureau of Meteorology (BOM)’s weather radar for the selected location in Australia. You can also resize the widget to whatever size you wish.
