DESCRIPTIONcream-melange provides a transparent HTML widget layer that can be used as an alternative to the desktop shell of your currently running desktop environment. The Melange widget system is part of the Cream Desktop Environment.
The Melange widget system (cream-melange) provides an easy to use API for creating widgets for your desktop environment. Creating Melange widgets is very simple.
As if that isn't enough you can use Python to collect and process data, which then can be used in your widget.
cream-melange expects to be run on a window manager that supports compositing (e.g. mutter). Launch it and start setting up your HTML based desktop shell (by right-clicking on your desktop's background).
