slayeroffice - web experiments gone horribly awry

01.05.2007 - Presence Box

Today I give you the Presence Box widget, an easy way to include your presence information in a web page. What is presence information? Its the same thing that appears in your favorite IM client when you mouse-over a persons ID.

This widget will display the name, online state, icon, away message, away time, idle time and profile of the user, and is completely customizable in its appearence via CSS since its just HTML. All you need to do is include some javascript and a <div> element that identifies itself as the container for the widget. Details can be found here.

I've also made a cool little "Powered By AIM" badge that you are welcome to stick on your applications that make use of the AIM API. You can grab a copy of it over here.
