Google announced API for adding modules to Google Home page.

In an post on google blog, Adam Sah of the google team has announced the Google Home page API that allows developers to create modules that can be added to the personalizable Google home page.

I took a quick look at it, the whole thing seems to be based on XML files (duh!) and scripts, like klipfolio can be written inline with the XML. Check out the developer guide for an example. Google has already added a few modules of its own in the Module directory.My personal favourite is the one that allows you to customize the google logo (man! how did he think of that before) :)

So - happy moduling!

Join the discussion.
