Noodle is prepared for vendor modules. Just listen for this event:

Vendor module must implement TODO.

How to create dashboard widget:

Attach view helper to shared event manager event

$events->getSharedManager()->attach('Noodle\Controller\IndexController', 'dashboard', function ($e) {

Use and save noodle options for your widget if needed.

NOTE: Please be carefull if you use your own option settings so there will be no conflicts in namespaces.

In you helper:

$optionService = $this->getServiceLocator()->getServiceLocator()->get('noodleOptions');
$optionService->setOption('your_widget_namespace.your_option_key', option_value);

Widget will be rendered via your helper public function __invoke(){} method

Please see Noodle\View\Helper\Dashboard\GoogleAnalytics as a reference.
