checked for security[edit]

Hello, how are the Wolfrma Alpha widgets checked for security? That is, if I turn on this extension, what sorts of javascript may it end up running when someone inserts a widget into a page? Is there a description of the scope of what widgets can do / what libraries they are limited to / any verification that takes place? Thanks, Sj 18:06, 14 September 2010 (UTC)


The javascript emitted by the widgets is limited to a pre-defined template which is filled in by the widget author's choices of inputs and layout. All user input is sanitized and escaped using ESAPI standard methods. The widgets depend on jQuery, which is loaded dynamically as required. Martyk 18:06, 15 September 2010 (UTC)
OK. Is there a list of available templates? Thanks for the examples below.
There is not a list, there is really just one template. The variations between widgets basically boil down to the form / input elements (the content) and how the results show up (lightbox / popup / in-line). Martyk 15:28, 22 September 2010 (UTC)

Demo site; or suggest some widgets to try[edit]

Could you suggest a characteristic set of 10 widgets to test out, to demonstrate the range of what widgets can do? Thanks, Sj 18:09, 14 September 2010 (UTC)


Here is a list of example widgets. Fundamentally there is not much difference between any two widgets. There is an embedded web form and an iFrame to show results. The rest happens on our end. Martyk 18:28, 16 September 2010 (UTC)
