(from Novell) with the ability to wrap existing widgets into the
equivalent of the (Appware) Loadable Modules!
Unfortunately the company that bought Appware (Network Multimedia) is not
doing too much recently. The website is down and the change of name
(MIcrobrew) turns any websearch for it into a nightmare.
However the ease of use is astonishing. A tool like that would let
beginners like me contribute much more.
