This is an example of porting a Opera Widget to Nokia WRT using Guide found here.

== 1. Download the .zip package ==
The NHL zip package can be found by following this [1]

2. Unzip the NHL archive

The archive needs to be unzipped to make modifications to its contents, so go ahead and extract it.

3. Create info.plist manifest file

When installing a .wgz file the system looks for a manifest file called info.plist. The Opera Widget equivalent is called config.xml.

Here's how to use the Opera Widget config.xml data to create the WRT manifest file:

  1. Download and unzip this info.plist template file and save it in the widget's root directory.
  2. Add the text found within the <widgetname> tag of the config.xml file to the <DisplayName> element of the info.plist file.
    --image of tags--
  3. Add the <Identifier> as a random integer 30 digits long.
    --image of tags
  4. Add the <MainHTML> as index.html.
    --image of tags
  5. Leave <AllowNetworkAccess> as </true>.
    --image of tags
  6. Save the file.

4. Packaging

Re-zip the containing NHL folder and change the file extension from .zip to .wgz. NHLWidgetPortingExample Rezipped.png
