Here's how Glitter works:
Glitter is an app for your computer that allows you to add widgets to your screen. Now, there are many apps that do this. Where Glitter is different is that it allows those widgets to be written with web technologies, which drastically lowers the barrier to entry into the desktop customization "land".
You can download widgets made by other people, and you can also create your own. Glitter makes both easy - it's up to you.
Glitter comes with an integrated development server and templates for React and Vue.js. All you have to do is open your favourite code editor and start working on your widget.
Each widget can be added any number of times, to any of your screens. Glitter makes it easy to just drag the widgets around so you can position them just the way you want to.
Yes - it's that simple
