This work seeks to assist in the building and modification of the user interface by defining appropriate tools and toolkits for use in the development process. While our ultimate goal is to allow end users with little or no programming experience to be able to develop and modify interfaces themselves, a more attainable short-term goal is to empower developers to quickly create such interfaces, building and maintaining a sharable repository of tools and techniques during the development process. This poster paper describes our Malleable Interactive Software Toolkit (MIST), an architecture and toolkit that provides development support, and outlines the ways in which we expect it will assist developers and end users in rapid and flexible interface creation.
