How To Create A Slick iOS Widget In JavaScript? In this short tutorial, we’ll create an iOS home screen widget that will display scraped content directly on our iOS device home screen. Scriptable is an app for iOS devices that allows you to write JavaScript code that will be translated into native iOS code. We use the Scriptable app for getting this data and transform them into an iOS widget. For example, we'll scrape yahoo.finance.com/losers/ and get ticker symbol, name, and daily percentage change. Our script will serialize these pieces of data into a JSON data source.
