Smart GWT – SgWidgets

SmartGWT is an amazing UI component library for Google Webtool Kit. It increases your UI development productivity multi-fold as you don’t have to deal with many of the web related issues like Js/Css/Jsp/Jsf.

While it has so many components, I found out that it is missing Date/Time picker and Dual Pane List, which I end up creating myself for a project I was working on.

I’m releasing these two widgets as open-source project. Hope somebody finds it useful.

data-exporter

Sometime back I posted about Java Text Table Formatter. As I worked on that, I realized that most of the data export model could be reused to export the content in various formats, like Xml, Html or Json etc.,

To that end, I started to refactor the code base to support various formats and I’m releasing it as new project data-exporter. It is very simple and flexible library to export the data in various formats. Check out the features and try it out. Let me know if you want some specific feature.

KS Narasimhaswamy is a prominent poet in Karnataka. One of his poem I always remember is, Ivaru Mechuva Vastu Illila Joke. This is about the general populous who always complains about the things around.
