Do You Want to Make Your Own CHT Addons (Widgets)? Here is How…

Aside from making quite a few announcements and updates regarding the upcoming final version of CHT 2.0.0, XDA member Co0kieMonster just provided the community with everything that is needed to have more development for CHT. The dev provided a widget kitchen and a very detailed manual for experienced devs. This will allow people to develop new things for Sense (CHT) and maybe even improve on already existing ones. Keep in mind that some previous knowledge on Manila and lua are required as they are not covered at all in the guide.

Moreover, a dev group has been made available for devs to join. However, this is by invitation only. Do you have anything new to bring to the table? Feel like you can make the next best widget to hit a WM device? Then, hop over to the tutorial and start coding.

Addon widget kitchen and dev guide:
I uploaded the addon kitchen to post 6 on the first page:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/atta…2&d=1286152965

Along with the kitchen tools you’ll find:
1) A CHT addon dev guide – it’s a draft right now, I’ll expand it based on feedback.
2) Source files for all addon widgets.

The dev guide should help you get started, but basic manila and lua knowledge it needed and not explained in the guide. Hopefully the guide will expanded in the future to include that too.
A few devs have already managed to create their own addons, so I’m hoping this will not be too difficult for others either. You can get more information or post your feedback on widget development either here or in the dedicated dev group:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/group.php?groupid=278. Contact me over PM for an invite to the dev group – please, only people who are serious about development.

You can find more information in the development thread.

Sunday Debate: Are Smaller Bezels Better or Worth It?

Bezels have been getting smaller and smaller as the years go by, and while devices from 2011 needed to trim some fat, there is no absolute rule that says that smaller bezels, after a happy medium, are beneficial to a phone. Part of this is that, with today’s current smartphone paradigms, an absolute lack of bezels does not produce an inherently better user experience.   With each technological advancement come limitations and compromises of some sort, and bezels are not...
