Responding the streetlights-glowing call
Ariya called on who is going to turn the web-based google talk client to a plasmoid, so here i am :)
layout = new LinearLayout(plasmoid); webView = new WebView(); webView.url = "http://talkgadget.google.com/talkgadget/m"; layout.addItem(webView);
And the result is:
You can download it here (warning: trunk required).
with c++ api: eheh excellent :D
bundle: i didn't look if just downloading those html pages and js kept the thing functional and also dunno about potential licensing issues, but yeah, in thah case we have the "webkit" scripting engine done to handle such things (also like for instance the osx dashboard widgets) so would be totally feasible
anyways this was just a proof of concept to show how simple is to bridge a web app, /me still prefers native plasmoids anyways :)
Seeing as this is all JS and HTML then why not make it into a web installable bundle. It seems a little wasteful to go 98% of the way and then not finish the job.
So cool !
And it would be great to be able to stay on top.
Press the shortcut, then come up, no need to minimize all windows to get to the window.
with c++ api
And now with C++ code !
And that's the magic of qt & kde. Looks great, cheers!
