Whitecap a mashup widget
S60 web runtime allows AJAX request to be sent to different hosts, i.e. no same-server-policy, which makes it a great platform for mashup services. This article shows how a simple mashup widget can be created by using Twitter and Digg web APIs.
Idea behind this widget. People tweet about interesting new hot topics on twitter. These buzz words can then be obtained trough twitter APIs as a “trends”. However, you do not often know why certain word is mentioned. To get full picture, an article search from Digg is executed. Now you have the full picture what is happening in the world and why on earth, people are going to San Diego (well the reason is apparently Comic Con :) )
The most of the widget UI is based on Nokia Mobile Web Templates. This widget also includes a hacked version of the accordion list that supports multiple DD-tags.
Please feel free to improve the Widget. It still has many usability issues, but at least I find it useful. Download Whitecap.zip
