A menu based on Windows 10's Start Menu.
v12+ requires KDE 5.9+
v6+ requires KDE 5.6+
KDE 5.5.5 and below need to use the special kde5.5 version.
* Pin/Favourite apps/files through the context menu (or by dragging them from dolphin).
* Resizing (permanently) the size of the menu by Alt + Right Clicking and dragging.
* Panel Icon optionally scales to a maximum of 60px width/height so it can be used on thick panels without scaling too big.
Does not support (Win10):
* Video/Pictures/etc directory shortcuts above the power button (but you can add them to the favourite grid).
* Most used apps (kicker's api only supports most recent)
* Small/Wide/Large sized tiles.
* Spaces between tiles (it's a simple list for now).
Install Translations: German, Simplified Chinese
(cd ~/.local/share/plasma/plasmoids/com.github.zren.tiledmenu/locale/ && sh ./install)
Translators: Fill out https://github.com/Zren/plasma-applets/blob/master/tiledmenu/package/locale/template.pot, paste into https://paste.kde.org/ and comment with the link.
v13 - February 6 2017 1 month ago
* Only support Plasma 5.9+
* Disable the calculator runner in the search. It crashes plasmashell under a certain condition (opening the context menu then searching for anything).
* Add ability to edit the text in tiles. Changing the size of the tile is still a work in progress.
* Add sidebar buttons to open ~/Documents ~/Downloads ~/Music ~/Pictures ~/Videos have been added depending on how much vertical space there is available. In the future, they will not appear by default and need to be configured in the settings once the UI has been drawn up.
* Replace the sidebar search button (which was fairly useless) with a button to list apps by category. Switching between A-Z and category view is a bit slow atm.
* Follow the default menu widget's (kicker) app list loading pattern.
v12 - January 13 2017 1 month ago
* Support Plasma 5.9
* Break compatibility with Plasma 5.8 and below.
v11 - January 13 2017 1 month ago
* Misc work on locale install scripts. Use kreadconfig5 which should be preinstalled.
* Add german translation by rumangerst.
* Lay groundwork for future features: reversing search results (align to bottom), category view, and moving the searchbox to the top.
v10 - December 30 2016 2 months ago
* Chinese translations by https://github.com/lm789632
* Optimize updating the recent app list so it doesn't lag opening the menu.
* Clicking the user icon will now open a submenu with user manager/lock/logout/change user similar to Win10.
KDE 5.5 4 months ago
* This is the only version which is compatible with KDE 5.5.5 (Tested on Kubuntu 16.04 LiveCD)
