What is the best method of converting Widgets created before the August release Deprecation-Notice?

Customers that created many Widgets in the Qlik Sese Hub are being told that al existing creations will no longer work when the August release is installed. See Qlik's below notice:

community.qlik.com/t5/Knowledge/Deprecation-Notice-Qlik-Sense-Widgets-and-Custom-Components-FAQ/ta-p...

Qlik Cloud is not an option. So how do clients prepare?

For example,

1) Widget extensions that hold only HTML/CSS script?

2) Visualization Widgets

If you're already dabbling in HTML & CSS, a week of looking at some basic javascript, extension building could give you the same, if not more powerful functionality.

As a most basic implementation, an extension with a single text field to paste in your HTML, and a quick bit of code to render that with JS in the paint function  ( see link ) would probably work.
