I am not sure if this is a question or a discussion. I have a whole bag full of questions (none of which really need answers), I guess I just need to vent or something...


You have got to be kidding me! I just spent a week developing a custom widget because I need one last piece of functionality in my web app that is not available in the built-in widgets.


Why? Am I missing something?

Why would I build a custom widget if I can not provide it to my users in ArcGIS Online?

Is ESRI trying to force us into Portal? Would custom widgets even work in Portal?


It looks like I need to somehow download my web app, add the custom widget to it, and host it on my web server. Is that the workflow?


I just don't get it! Plus, I do not need links to existing documentation. I have spent enough time trying to find answers in the documentation!
