Writing a Zimlet
Mainly there are two ways to implement a Zimlet:
1. Use xml api
- You can do some of the basic stuffs using just xml-api.
- Limited set of features(e.g. you can’t design your own dialog box or create a Zimbra entity(like a folder, tag etc)
- No or limited debugging capabilities
An Example Zimlet using xml-api:
Hello World -Use XML-api to highlight "hello world" String as a link and show a tooltip.
- Firebug provides you with world-class debugging power.
- You can still use xml api for some small purposes like creating a panel item, context-menus etc.
Develop an example RSS Zimlet -Learn how to fetch an RSS feed and display it in a mini-calendar area or in a dialog box
