LocalLayer widget install and usage tips

Updates to this blog and attached document:
- Added note in doc about making sure the widget\LocalLayer does NOT have another layer of LocalLayer as a subdirectory. Should look like graphic below in the widgets directories:
For additional discussion, see WAB 2.5 and LocalLayer 2.5? I cant seem to get the LocalLayer widget to show up.

This document was created initially because the first few versions were lacking any detailed help. The READMME.md now contains much of this information, but the attached document expands this info to hopefully make it a little more user friendly, for those of us that are not as hardcore at developing as they are. (NOTE: help docs have been improved since I originally wrote this. Also, very detailed doc/tutorial for this, plus other custom widgets, can be found Using the Web AppBuilder )
These are my tips and observations that I'm collecting as I'm learning to implement the widget. Not a true "help" document, but some info that might help others. I will update and re-post as needed. Comments/corrections are welcome in the comment section.
