Is the description of the BaseWidget widget correct on this page?
JSDoc: Module: aikau/core/BaseWidget
No, it definitely isn't. Check the source code for the correct JSDoc. Since Aikau is not actively developed / maintained anymore by Alfresco (except for their internal use e.g. in RM), there is little chance this will ever be corrected. Also, this branch of new / experimental widgets with some refactoring to make Aikau more perfomant will likely never be completed or become "mainstream".
