Creating plasmoids with JavaScript



With KDE 4.4, plasmoids can now be written in JavaScript or QtScript, thus opening up a whole new class of applications. Marcel shows how easy it is to build JavaScript plasmoids.

As a non-programmer, I have an insane amount of respect for programmers. Part of it is because I’m married to a programmer (insert appropriate smiley here), but part of it is because they seem to have this superhuman ability to understand strange languages and turn them into things I either need or want to have. Programmers and coders, specifically those who create free and open source software, are responsible for the amazing Linux system I am using to write this. So, my thanks to you all.
