The Amazon Wishlist widget that I created last week is now at Widgetbox, a widget directory. Their site is quite nice. It allows users to browse widgets and use them in their webpages. For developers, Widgetbox provides a nice interface for submitting your own widget.

When I put AmzWish on Widgetbox I exposed some querystring parameters for it:

  1. wishlistid - An Amazon assigned Id for a particular wishlist to use (required).
  2. maxitems - The number of items to display in the widget (optional, defaults to 4).
  3. associatesid - An Amazon Associates Id to use, so that you can get paid when people buy things from the widget (optional).
  4. sorttype - For now there are only two accepted values: "random" and "none". None outputs the items in the order of the date they were added to your wishlist (most recent first). Random outputs the items in random order (optional, defaults to none).
