Coins Gadget for Windows 7

Here is a little gadget writed in Javascript for Windows7 which display the price of several cryptocurrencies available on Coinbase, in real time, on the desktop. It also allows: to display a miniature chart of course history, to alert the user visually and audibly when the price reaches a given price, and to go in a click on Coinbase. It does not require any private information.

This gadget was created as part of personal research on Javascript development, webservices and crypto-currencies. It is still in development but is still running permanently on my computer.

For the record, this gadget has required more work than it seems due to the obsolence of Windows 7 and gadgets, the latter having been considered dangerous by Microsoft for security reasons. The lack of updates, functions and documentation forced me to program among other things my own Json Parser, with the particularity of being unable to use an associative arrays or hashmap.

PS: This only works on Windows 7.
