  • You don't need any special software beyond your favorite text editor.  You do need to be familiar with HTML, Javascript, and CSS, and you need to read through the SDK and examples.  More information here.

  • It really depends on your skill set in order to say if writing a Sidebar gadget is difficult or not.  If you're comfortable with web technologies, I'd say writing a Sidebar gadget is easier than writing a desktop application.


    Also, depending on what programming class you're taking at school, that may or may not be directly applicable.
