Here's my crazy question of the day.

Has anybody played around with using Rails to create Mac OS X Dashboard

Or is that just sick and wrong?

Even if you find some crazy way to do this the problem is that it
would most likely only work on your computer. Widgets are not actually
run through a webserver but are opened using the browser engine
opening a local file. Thus you are limited to the things Safari can do
with local files.

You could also have standard widgets calling a Rails application
across the web though.
