From their site: The Google Gadgets API provides a way to put third-party content onto the Google homepage. The main use of the Google Gadgets API is to create gadgets (mini-applications) that users can add to their Google personalized homepages and other Google properties. For example, you could create a photo album gadget, or a gadget that displays an interactive game. The API is designed to be simple enough so that anyone can turn his or her web page or application into a gadget.
The following is a list of how-to and tutorial content that matched your search term. ProgrammableWeb's how-to content comes from two sources; full-blown tutorials that we publish ourselves and other highly relevant tutorials that we find elsewhere on the Web. This list represents on combination of both tutorial types and if you go to ProgrammableWeb's API University, you'll not only be able to find more, they are organized based on your role (API providers or developers who consumes APIs). If you know of a tutorial that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it. Be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
