Libegg, what is it status.

Tags General 

I spend this morning and part of last night working on writing my own “Date” widget.

I used to use EggDataTime, but it had some bugs:

My own is simple, and does not allow you to enter a date (as text) and have that parsed. But it does use strftime to print the date in the correct localisation and has a working no-date option. The popup also understands monitor size, and tries to stay on the monitor.

But getting to the point, in what state is libegg? is it wise to use widgets from it? Are there future plans?
