When you configure widgets, you set public properties that define the widget's characteristics. For example, you can configure widgets to point to a particular file or feed URL so that it knows from where to pull data.
You can configure style properties that define how the widgets should display in the mashup application. Style properties include filtering and sorting information in tables, highlighting rows of data and adding titles, adding colors and images, and more. For more advanced widgets, you can create scripts to transform and convert data based on a condition that you specify. Because each widget is unique, the configuration settings vary from widget to widget.
Widget settings are stored per widget instance. For example, if each page has a weather widget, you can configure each widget instance to default to a different home city for each page. Widget settings are not global nor customized for the user, although you can accomplish similar behavior by changing the widget itself or customizing data using wires.
