Widget Support for Newbie

Postby Thom » Sat Apr 08, 2006 3:32

I am less than 72 hours old to Orange Widgets but find it very interesting and potentially useful. I am not proficient at scripting yet, so I was drawn to the visual programing with the widgets. Unfortunately, I have only found 4 of the data widgets with any documentation or examples in the Widget catalog. I was hoping someone can direct me towards some more tutorials or further documentation on the use of widgets.
Thank you in advance,

We have set the goal to have (at least) 30 widgets documented by Jun 1. But for now, four is all we have.

On the other hand - do you really need the documentation? Widgets were meant to be so simple that anyone can use most of them without having to read anything. If there's something you don't understand - just ask.

Thanks. I am looking forward to it. I am new to the kinds on data mining methods the widgets run and I am looking for any help (examples). On that note, I have had some positive results even though I really do not understand what it is they are doing. They are easy to use.
Climbing the learning curve,
