    SqueezeOS/SqueezePlay Lua API, Guide to Applet design

    I browsed through the Mediawiki but all I found was this:

    Is there any further documentation available on developing a screensaver applet that follows all necessary conventions (e.g. displays time/date according to general language options)?

    Not that I am aware of.

    You should look at the existing Clock-Screensafer to learn some tweaks.
    Furthermore erland wrote some screensavers ('Custom Clock ScreenSaver', 'Information Screen', 'Album Flow') as well as me (though I don't know whether we did everything right) .

    As to localized date and time. There are special util-methods, which return date and time strings according to the settings.

    Unfortunately there is an open bug: for dates they don't return a localized version: https://bugs.slimdevices.com/show_bug.cgi?id=14538
