Basically any REST service that can be used by web browsers can potentially be used in WRT widgets.

This page is just made to show some public REST services that can be easily used within WRT widgets, and all examples are just skeleton application showing how any specific service can be utilized. Also examples just utilize one or few features of the service, and to see all options what the service can provide, you would need to go and visit the service provider’s web pages.

To actually make a WRT widget and to distribute it, you must check the Terms and regulations from the service provider, and obey any restrictions they may pose on utilizing their services.

Note that some services do require developer specific API key to be used, thus to use these services, you need to first register to the service provider.
