Widgets are components of Composer and are the building blocks used to create overlays with ease.
Singular includes a suite of Widgets such as Text, Rectangle, Circle, Image, etc. New Widgets are constantly developed and added to the Singular Widget Library.

Widgets fall into two basic categories, Basic and Advanced.
Basic Widgets are one in which you add the Widget to a composition and the options are straight forward with a simple set of properties.

Advanced Widgets are usually dependent on additional Compositions in order to function. In addition they require data or code such as JSON, CCS, HTML, and SVG Code, in order to make the Widget work.
For example the Grid Widget requires that a single row and or column is built in a dedicated Composition as a child to the parent Sub-Composition. It needs this in order for the Widget to replicate a single rows and or columns Grid size. In addition this Widget requires JSON data. The same principle is true for the Table Widget and Video Playlist Widget for example.
