Registered by gDesklets Desklet Team

A system for bringing mini programs (desklets), such as weather forecasts, news tickers, system information displays, or music player controls, onto your desktop, where they are sitting there in a symbiotic relationship of eye candy and usefulness. The possibilities are really endless and they are always there to serve you whenever you need them, just one key-press away.

gDesklets' advanced technology such as screen resolution independent layout, full network transparency, or Python inline scripting make it the most flexible solution for desktop applet systems currently available.

The community around gDesklets includes dozens of developers who are continually working on new desklets for gDesklets and make them available to you on this website. gDesklets makes desklet development really easy and you can join the community of developers, too!
