Showerthoughts plasmoid
Plasma 5 Various
Score 56%
Description:

Shows a randomly chosen post (or post's thumbnail) from one or several reddit's subreddits.

You can make it load a new post by left clicking and open it by middle click.

It was inspired in https://www.reddit.com/r/linux/comments/4jx4oh/get_a_random_rshowerthoughts_post_as_your_shell/ ... and somehow became much more than initially expected.

Notes:

When asked to show an image, the plasmoid will try to find it. There is no guaranty it will get a link to a image from reddit. This depends on many thinks. Remember that it's impossible to know how every mod configures their subreddit.

Right now the plasmoid doesn't know how to log in. This means that some subreddits are inaccessible.

There is no multireddit support, and there is no intention to add it. Sorry.

Never mind. I have figured out that I can change the colour by changing the value in contents/ui/main.qml

Hey!, sorry for taking so long to reply. Glad you figured it out yourself. I added the option anyway, so give it a try.

Better behavior when put on the panel.\n

- Shows a little shower icon.

- The icon tooltip shows the same text than the widget tooltip.

- Will load the image only if the widget is shown (when you click on the panel icon).

1.0.1 6 months ago

Shows a sad face icon if it can't connect to the subreddit and was supposed to show an image.
