Break down the widget’s design and start coding up the different parts that would make up the custom widget.


Learn about how we could use parameters of the widget to customize it so that it could be reusable in different parts of our app.


Break down the design and interaction of our second reusable widget which is an audio widget and start building it.


Add the parameters for the audio widget and code up the logic for the play interaction.


Add the logic that updates the position and dependent data for the audio player’s seek bar.

Try out the widget we just created by hooking it up to an audio plugin.
