The goal of the General Applet Interface Library is to give programmers a simple yet powerful applet interface. This library supports wmapplet/dockapps, GNOME 2 panel applets, and ROX panel applets. The applet programmer doesn't have to care about where the applet will be used, since the library handles that. Over 50% of the code in a dockapp and a GNOME 2 Panel applet does only one thing, setting up the applet window. With GAI, this can be reduced to just a few lines of code.
