Window to Plasmoid converter
Posted by Leti on Wednesday, July 2, 2008
You might have seen Vladimir’s post already. He has created a plasmoid to convert windows into plasmoids. It’s still a work in progress but interesting work nonetheless. Go read it if you haven’t, I’ll wait.
Some question the advantage of having a widget limited to your desktop area when you could have the application window itself. Well, as far as I know the vision for Future Plasma includes the ability to transfer widgets to other systems: PDA, mobile phone, other PC, 2.0 toaster, etc. Limited? Not really.
And even though IANAD, at first glance it looks like this may be useful once Chani’s GSoC project gets implemented. We could have a Konsole window showing very interesting output over a locked screen without the need of someone creating a plasmoid for it first. One can dream, right? Anyway, Chani’s project is gonna be awesome with or without the converter.
