Plasmoids everywhere

Plasmoids everywhere

KDE 4 is all about clocks. As I did not want to miss them while browsing the Net I sat down and extended Frerich’s Plasmoid Viewer code (a Workspace utility) to not only be a standalone program but also come along as a KPart. It can be embedded into an Konqueror HTML page with a simple element like this one:

<object id="myclock" type="application/x-plasma" classid="plasmoid:clock" height=200 width=300></object>

The patch – which was surprisingly small – can be found here. Below the obligatory screenshot showing some Plasmoids embedded next to an iframed search engine. The applet that locks the desktop locked it so well on testing that I had to kill the process from a console 🙂
