There was a recent Google Desktop Gadget competition, wherein I coded and submitted four Gadgets

  1. Translate

    A simple gadget, that uses Google’s Translate server. Google hasnt released APIs for this service, but this is a small hack to get it going.
  2. Topcoder Events list Topcoder Shaastra
    This gadget parses the Topcoder’s Calendar page, and lists all events of that month. It was a pretty tough job parsing HTML with regular expressions! But, amazingly, it worked.
  3. GScheduler
    GSheculer Durbatuluk

    A simple event / reminder scheduler, add multiple friends, and get the reminder by chat! )
  4. MD5 Generator
    MD5 zeppelin

    A MD5 checksum generator of a file. Just drag n drop. Uses the freely available C code written by RSA Security, released to public.

All gadgets can be found here:

    Hey 🙂

    I’m trying to get your Traslator for Google desktop to work but as soon as I start typing anything into the upper box the lower gives me a “Error! Hmm…Did you provide the right options?” message. Is is a soft bug? cause I got my x|x options correct.

    waiting for a reply [craving some transl :)],

    can we get the source code? (for topcoder event list)

  5. Vimal Says:

    The file itself is a ZIP archive. Rename the file to and then extract it… You will find main.js there, which is the source code.

    Hope this helps 🙂
