Ios14 widgets

It would be great if Codea added support for ios14 widgets. I wonder if Apple would allow it? Pythonista have support for Todays Widgets, but they are quite limited in memory usage.

    It would be a different API I guess — Widgets are entirely SwiftUI and declarative, so they wouldn't be able to render any OpenGL. We would need to design an API that allows for the composition of predefined shapes, images, and layouts

    Scriptable app has support for coding Widgets

    Thanks for the feedback. Good to know, would have been nice if they had supported opengl.

    On another topic, I really like the iphone version of Codea, so nice to be able to code some on the go, or as now while my daughter sleeps on me so I cannot move away :)

    Congratulations on your daughter! I'm assuming she's recent and very little :smile:
