Hi - really glad to see Fluid is preparing to devote some design cycles
to this widget!
Directing all towards the original requirements page for the date
widget started by Kathy:
You can see all the discussion there, and also try out the templates
for my implementation which is still up at
You can grab the markup for the templates at
to be used in any design work that you would like to do from here.
Probably the biggest work that would need to be done to make this
widget usable in the other display technologies would be to rewrite
the logic used for handling user timezones onto the client side
rather than the server so that we can save on AJAX trips. Although
we could do without this by just deploying a single "standard widget"
webapp into Sakai this would be a bit awkward.
Another issue seems to be that many locales (Denmark, South Africa, etc.)
are complaining that the standard JDK locale information is not correct
for them. We need to think about some architecture for overriding/patching
this, hopefully in a scheme that is not too Sakai-specific.
