How to create widgets for your Shika user dashboard?

How to create widgets for your Shika user dashboard?

In the process of making Shika's user dashboard more user friendly we have made some major changes by adding new widgets to the dashboard. With this you can now build your own widgets and give your users the freedom to choose which widgets he/ she wants to be shown on the dashboard.

We have created a new table #__tjlms_dashboard which contains all the widgets per users. If the users has not set any widgets to be shown or is using the default dashboard, basic dashboard plugins will be shown.

For Shika 1.0, user will not be able to select the widget and hence only the basic widget will be shown. This feature will be implemented in version 1.1.
