Dropthings is a Personalizable Widget powered Web Portal framework that demonstrates the power of Ajax and Widget Framework to build Web 2.0 websites as well as Enterprise Dashboards. You can extend the fully functional site in any way you like. You can build your own widgets, besides the built-in RSS, Twitter, Flickr, Weather, Stock, HTML and Static Content widgets. You can build widgets that render data from your own databases or collects data from your own webservices and renders them using sophisticated rendering controls. Dropthings is an N-tier web app with nearly 100% automated test coverage on the business layer as well as 80% automated UI tests that cover all the UI behaviors. It is a great ASP.NET foundation to build your own application upon, benefiting from the highly extensible codebase that embraces Dependency Injection, Inversion of Control, Repository Pattern, Caching, Instrumentation, and Unit Testable code.
