#41138 new enhancement

Add widget base id class to widgets so developers could add custom CSS styles to their custom widgets.

Currently the widgets have only "widget" class and "ui-draggable".

What do you think? I think it's a great idea to highlight custom widgets with different colors, so users can easily find new installed widgets from plugins. (Maybe some one with have other purposes)

I think this could easily become a visual nightmare. Love to get some UI/UX input on this.

Widgets are becoming more and more, we need to do something because finding the new installed widget from a custom plugin - is not so easy.

Perhaps, but if we add a class with the intent of differentiating via colors determined by the plugin author, then we are in the same situation but now all the widget have different colors. So the experience ( in the worst-case ) would be confusing AND ugly.

I certainly like the idea of making it easier to see new widgets, but am not sold on this specific approach.
