HelloWorldScreenlet iss a demonstration screenlet, not for use by normal users, but by developers. The code is commented extensively to help developers understand how to code screenlets, and to provide them with an example of screenlet that has updating text on a simple background. Hopefully this demonstration screenlet will allow you to understand how a screenlet is coded and allow you to code desklets of your own to better Gnome.
Screenlets is the name of both a set of independently-developed widget applications and the widget engine which runs them. The engine runs primarily on X11-based compositing window managers, most notably the Compiz (under Linux) architecture.
