Thread: Which Plasmoids would you like to see and I'll try help...

    Default Which Plasmoids would you like to see and I'll try help...

    Plasmoids are one of the best components of KDE4 but sometimes I feel I can't find one that suits my purpose. Anyways, this week I looked at figuring out plasmoids and programmed my first one. So I would like to know what plasmoids people would like to see and I will try make some of them. They aren't going to be super beautiful (I will try) but they will be functional and they will be stable.


    Just three rules:

    1. It needs to be realistically achievable in a short period of time (aprox 8 hrs max for one but if I really like the idea I will compromise)
    2. It needs to be implemented with the python bindings
    3. I don't want to reinvent the wheel.





    The third rule has particular importance. If there is a ready existing plasmoid that needs a feature then ask the orginal developer nicely, if you want a totally new reimplementation of an existing plasmoid we can discuss the merits of the idea. I really want to push plasmoids more. I use a few in my panel but most lie on my Widget dashboard (I don't have any on my desktop.) Even if I can't do something, lets still discuss it and maybe we can find somebody who can help us.

    I intend to use Python to do them with but I'm definitely going to try expand into QML.

    Just as an example of my first plasmoid here it is: http://kde-apps.org/content/show.php...content=154575

    Its not much but it serves a basic function especially if you edit an application to launch with optirun instad of doing so from a terminal. Its made for the panel and not much else, but it does its job quite well.

    What about a system file editor? I have a bash script that does the same thing, but perhaps a small plasmoid would be good as well?

    SYSEdit - System File Editor - Version 1.00 - Blogs - openSUSE Forums

    OR, some sort of File Permissions helper like this:

    S.A.F.P. - SUSE Automated File Permissions - Version 1.0.4 - Blogs - openSUSE Forums

    Anyway, you are welcome to use anything you find in the bash scripts if it helps.

    Thank You,
