Bringing wiki to the Mac OS X Tiger Dashboard. You can think of it as StickyNotes on steroids, or a digital Moleskine notebook. Create notes, search for them, and link notes together automatically.

Winner of the first Apple Dashboard Widget Contest:
WikityWidget is a personal notepad with automatic linking. Using a simple notebook-style interface, WikityWidget lets you easily jot down and organize notes with hypertext links so they’re easy to find and instantly available via the Mac OS X Tiger Dashboard. It applies Wiki technology in a new and interesting way on the Mac and demonstrates the powerful potential of widgets to leverage technologies in Tiger.

WikityWidget uses a native code plug-in to create a Javascript bridge to SQLite in Mac OS X Tiger, which ensures reliability, high performance, large capacity, and adds functionality such as “Search As You Type”. The user interface is rendered using the advanced CSS features of WebKit, and takes advantage of the built-in, high quality, anti-aliased fonts in Tiger. Its strong technical execution, clean interface design and interesting use of Tiger technologies demonstrates the unlimited potential of Dashboard widgets.
