As the UX is not defined/validated, it may be difficult for me to give 
precise clues.

But here are some general suggestions :
- you can look at how LibreOffice handles the Tasks "Panel" :
     - how to add a panel
     - how to hide/disable a panel
     - how to handle widgets in a panel (create, handle events...)

- for the "Custom Animation" panel
     - how does it behaves internally ? ie write documentation about it.
     I wrote nothing about it in my basic feedback [1], but it seems to 
me that there are some bugs (ex : some bizarre feedback when you change 
order of elements).
     You  may learn *a lot* and it'll be essential for every future 
change. Years ago, I had to start a project with a framework (MacApp2). 
I spent severals days reading code from the framework to understand the 
general architecture. It was an incredible way of learning : when I 
started coding, most of basic ideas where already integrated.
