FreeTV / Freeview Yahoo Widget

by on Jan.20, 2009, under ActionScript, Flash, PHP, Widgets

So this is the second widget I’ve created for FreeTV, this time for the Yahoo! Desktop platform (having previously completed the Google Desktop Widget). Although it was a replication of the Google version, it required a complete ground-up rebuild for implementation with the Yahoo! API, build time was just under 2 days.

These widgets deliver information and statistics on Australias top rated TV programs and channels right to your desktop.

It utilises the same custom CMS and XML feed I built for the Google Widget, allowing the client to upload a pre-formatted excel spreadsheet into the CMS to populate the XML feed with their data.

Technologies:

  • Flash
  • ActionScript2
  • PHP
  • XML
  • MySQL
