Visual examples for Handy Widgets


I want to start a new thread where people can show how the Handy Widgets look like. For me, for example, it is not always easy to imagine how a widget will look like, when using it in an app, when I read the description of it in the documentation.
So this thread is for developer who then can better decide which widgets they want to use in their own application.

My example for you is the Handy Carousel:


I also added the two kind of indicators for the Carousel. They can be used in a vertical orientation as shown in the animation or in a horizontal one, which is the default setting.

Feel free to add your own examples :slight_smile:

FWIW this exists;

Perhaps you want to send some examples there too given that it is likely the canonical location?

Did you try to compile and run the C example from ?

You can see a lots of libhandy widgets in one excutable, with options to modify the widgets properties / behaviors in live

Oh, I didn’t see that page. Then I will add my example there.

I use Python for development and I don’t have experience with compiling or building yet, but run my apps through the terminal.
Still, I think visual examples are better because you can directly see what a widget can do (of course not with changing properties) to decide which widget you wanna use :slight_smile:

I’m not sure if this is helpful, but I use Glade3 for designing GUI’s and run them with Python (using ‘build’). Glade can also be used with C, Go, etc.

Never tried for L5 (still waiting, ordered 2018 :woozy_face:). Does anybody know if Glade GUI works on L5?

No reason that Glade shouldn’t work on L5, but I haven’t tested.
