File Extension GMANIFEST


File extension: GMANIFEST
File type: Gadget Control File

Notes about the GMANIFEST file extension:

To open this file type, a required software must be installed. Without it you only see a Windows message "The following file cannot be opened" (Windows 7) or "How do you want to open this file?" (Windows 10) if you double-click the file. There click on "More apps" and choose a suitable software to view such files on your PC or from email attachments.

The GMANIFEST file type is primarily associated with 'Google Desktop' by Google. To develop and distribute a script-based Sidebar gadget, you: (1) Write a gadget.gmanifest file in XML that contains meta-information about the gadget. (2) Write a main.xml file, which defines the main view of your gadget. A view consists of the UI and objects that completely make up one visible pane of your gadget. (3) If needed, write an options.xml file, which defines your gadget's options view. (4) Write JavaScript or VBScript code to implement your gadget's functionality. (5) Zip together gadget.gmanifest, main.xml, options.xml (if you have one), and any separate JavaScript or VBScript files. Rename the zipped file so it has a .gg suffix (for Google Gadget). Your zipped file can have any name, but must have the .gg suffix. When a user installs a .gg-file-based gadget, their Google Desktop installation handles unzipping, installing, and registering it, using information from the gadget.gmanifest file.
