Tiny Tiny RSS Windows Gadget

Hi All,

I've created a Windows Gadget for Tiny Tiny RSS. It simply shows the next unread article in your all unread folder along with an unread count and, when you click on the article, it marks it as read and shows the next one. There is also a star icon at the top which will mark the article as starred and read then load the next unread article.

I've tested it on Windows 7, but it should work on Vista, although I'm not sure about Windows 8.

The code is up on GitHub http://www.github.com/RichardHyde/TTRSSGadget so feel free to branch it or leave issues and feature requests there.

Richard

Microsoft recommended three years ago that users disable the Sidebar and discontinue using Gadgets. I'm amazed you actually made a new one.

Yeah, I like working with cutting edge technology :wink: I'm stuck on Windows 7 at work and I've written a few gadgets for my own use.

For those who are unaware Microsoft advised that Windows Sidebar be disabled due to possible security issues in security advisory 2719662, so use this at your own risk.

I'll add this to the readme, thanks for the reminder.
