A critical aspect of mashup tools for end users is to come up with an intuitive metaphor. Sticklet is an augmentation-based mashup tool that conceives websites as walls where you can fix HTML fragments (sticky notes) from other websites. Notes are contextualized to the hosting website, i.e. location, parameter passing and layout should be harmonized to those of the website. A set of declarative constructs are available to declaratively specify complex sticky notes. Sticklet is realized as an internal DSL in JavaScript that capitalizes on browser weavers (e.g. Greasemonkey (GM)). Being full-fledged GM scripts, Sticklet benefits from the sharing repositories (e.g. or management utilities (e.g. activation, installation, edition) available for GM.
