I need EXPERIENCED coders/designers for a rather simple standalone desktop widget for the PC environment. You MUST have created widgets in the past and MUST be able to show examples of your desktop widget work!
The widget is standalone and not not dependent on Google desktop, yahoo widget engine or other dependencies. Want a simple .exe file for client desktop.
Platform is Windows and Mac.
The widget will take streams of news info and some statistics from a application server and send to the desktop widget of a client. Prefer the use of AIR widget, PHP, MySQL technologies. We can run a cron job frequently that will update the XML data for the desktop widget every few minutes
We need the following;
1. PHP Back end that allows registration of desktop client users and provides various functions
2. Taking data from the main mysql database to be sent to the desktop widget
3. Create some statistics to send to the desktop client
4. show the data and stats on the desktop widget
5. Simple yet elegant design of the widget (if you can, otherwise i can get a designer to create the psd)
You can use open-source framework for this project or make a recommendation.
I can provide sample of widget look and feel and any other additional info in PM.
Please bid early as i will select bidder prior to bid close.
