The best way to get started with Konfabulator is to pay attention to the Welcome tutorial. This tutorial starts up the first time you run Konfabulator, and points out various features of Konfabulator. If you missed it or forgot it, Konfabulator & Widget Basics page has most of the same information as the Welcome tutorial.
If you're interested in getting started with Widget Development, you'll find these resources invaluable:
- The Widget Workshop - the Konfabulator Reference Guide and Widget Creation Tutorial are both very helpful in getting started.
- The Widget Gallery - look at others' work and learn from it! Sometimes, you may even be able to base your Widget off of another, but make sure you check with the Widget author before publishing it.
- The official Konfabulator Forums - there are many active members willing to help out aspiring Widget authors.
