Google Gadget Editor
This tool will allow you to code and save an OpenSocial Gadget and render it via a Google OpenSocial Container. It is a very quick way to test your gadget but will not work if you are accessing and APIs which are not publically exposed (for example APIs which are authenticated by IP).
Yahoo Application Platform
This tool will allow you to code and import an OpenSocial Gadget that can be tested in Yahoo's OpenSocial container.
Running your own Container via Apache Shindig
Developers can also install and configure their won Apache Shindig server to act as a container for testing gadgets.
The purpose of this project is to make an IDE development tool for OpenSocial applications. OpenSocial Development Environment (OSDE) is provided as an Eclipse Plug-in. OSDE allows you to develop and test OpenSocial applications very easily.
With the introduction of the Eclipse based OpenSocial Development Environment (OSDE), it is now possible to build OpenSocial applications directly within Eclipse, as opposed to a live sandbox environment. This means you can easily develop OpenSocial compliant applications entirely in a stand-alone manner, within the context of a modern Integrated Development Environment (IDE). OSDE provides a rich set of features that both enable and enhance OpenSocial application development for both the client within a gadget, or even on a server using the Java RESTful client libraries.
Its features include:
The OCLC Developer Network supports the use of OCLC Web Services—a set of tools and APIs that expose data and services for WorldCat and our member libraries and partner institutions or companies. learn more »
