Netvibes modules

Hey world,

I recently switched from google/ig to Netvibes. This is a great AJAX desktop, far ahead of the others in my opinion.
And as I like to make a desktop my own, I wrote three modules for netvibes:

Daily comics module, inspired from the comics google module by Grimmthething. Presents a list of comics, hover on one and the daily strip appears:

BG image, a port/extract of my Personalized Home module. Displays a stretched image as netvibe's background. Also makes the modules background transparent:

Quick search, a small search box, with only the query box and a set of icons linking to the search engines. Enter a term, click the icon you choose, and the results opens in a new window.

Have a look at netvibes wiki page for more info and other modules.

Google module: yadelicious

I'm pleased to publish my second google module:

Yet another enhanced module.
This module is inlined so it can access it's own user preferences, to enable quick tag selection.
Initially based on Kim Schulz's and Alex Young's.

mirror on

To enable inling you must have the developper module installed:
Click "add Content", and then type "developer.xml" in the "Create Section" box.
This module will list all the modules you have, with "Inlined" and "Cached" checks.
You can check both for "yadelicious.xml".

Notes for later use

I just noticed that you must grant access to the internet to LSA shell. I noticed that because my java update could notice the new versions but could not get them.
Also, Generic Host Process for Win32 Services doesn't need access.
