FreeTV / Freeview Yahoo Widget

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
