I just created a widget but how do you package it up and make it a .wdgt or whatever that is.

Put all the widget parts into a folder then rename the folder with .wdgt on the end. E.g. the folder "MyCoolWidget" would be renamed to "MyCoolWidget.wdgt".

You only do that if you want to upload it here or to e-mail it to someone. To run a widget it shouldn't be zipped.
