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.

(Version 1.5 was broken. What worked on plasmoidviewer didn't work on desktop. Sorry about that)

Why not just change global proxy settings?

KDE global proxy doesn't work for me. I will try it again.

Thanks for adding the color picker option! I really wish all Plasmoids did this. One issue I'm having is that trying to use multiple subreddits, by using a comma delimiter as described, does not appear to work. I got around this by using multiple instances of the plasmoid. Anyone else having this issue?

That is weird. Have you tried reloading several times to be sure it isn't the random number generator not being very random? Also, avoid using spaces (not sure if that will affect).

Ah maybe I'm mis-using the Plasmoid. If I have (2) subreddits, it will only show one quote at a time, instead of (1) quote from each. Correct? If so, I misunderstood. Thanks again.

I love this plasmoid. Could you please add an option that allows to choose the text colour?

Report

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.

Added option to hide scrollbars.

Option to wait n seconds before start loading. It could help plasma load faster on very slow connections.

Fixed error loading thumbs from redditmedia.

It turns out that it was not loading high resolution thumbs. Didn't notice myself.

Option to change text color.

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 2 years ago

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