Description:

Add Widget Plasmoid

- No window needed to add, install and get plasmoids.
- \'Get Plasmoids\' button connects with kde-look.org to search for widget(no window needed - everything can be done in ONE plasmoid)
- \'Install Plasmoid\' button allows you to install widget from a file(no window too)
- Widget is shown, when we click Add Widget. It doesn't appear on desktop all the time.

If you have any ideas, please post them in your comments.

I thought of reimplementing the applet browser as an actual applet.

But what is the point?

You add applets only now and then, there's no reason to have the browser on the desktop all the time.

It is a replacement for applet browser. We open it like Applet browser, but it is a plasmoid - not window. After we do what we want, we just close it.

It should like device notifier, etc.

So, it is a floating plasmoid, opens when you want it, closes when you don't, has the features of the current one.

In a nutshell, it behaves exactly like the old one except for that it has the Plasma theme applied to it.

Again, what is the purpose of making something essentially the same as the current solution? (just with a new theme applied)

Yes, it would far more useful (but more difficult) if kwin would have the same theme than plasma (with svg, not something doable only by developpers). is it planned ?

I don't know. Writing styles is a lot of work, but is not complicated (especially in this case - most rendering is already implemented in Plasma, so the style could use it). You could try to persuade somebody to write it :)

Have you ever tried adding widgets in dashboard? I like how it isn't REALLY plasma themed, just sort of, so that you can tell its supposed to be there, but it doesn't blend in with the dashboard.

This only works on the dashboard because it has to be a plasmoid to show up, and there are no app windows to cover it. Not so on the desktop.

<uninformed rant>
And plasma theming should be reserved for shell-like plasma-based programs. Configuration isn't part of that. By shell-like, I mean like the current desktop shell with KRunner, or perhaps some sort of Plasma Media Center type thing, which would be a Media Shell (my terminology could be way off here, just trying to put the idea across) Otherwise, everyone will want THEIR window to look different from other peoples windows, using whatever theming strategy they choose, and the windows will be such a mishmash that you wouldn't know that there is a universal theme. Theming a configuration window with plasma would be a first step to breaking consistency of the system. There needs to be a clear line between what is the desktop shell, and what isn't. The 'Add Widgets' dialog crosses that line.
</uninformed rant>

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
