It doesn't make sense to duplicate efforts. Please use the Window Title Applet, which is better integrated with Latte Dock technology: https://store.kde.org/p/1274218/

Plasma Active Application

KDE plasma applet to show the active application name. Thought to be used in a panel together with plasma's global menu.

Motivation:

Unfortunately [awc] (https://github.com/kotelnik/plasma-applet-active-window-control) does not seem to be maintained anymore. The experience from the official plasma global menu is currently better, but it is currently missing the active application name.

Features:

- Easy replacements through the configuration interface (see github issue #1 for instructions)
- Maximaze/Restore (double-click) or close (middle-click)
- Full window title tooltip
- Configurable: Bold text, Show window icon, Spacing (Left, Right and in between of Icon and AppName), No window text (activity friendly), No window icon

Preview:

Installing:

plasmapkg2 -i plasma-active-application.plasmoid

Updating:

plasmapkg2 -u plasma-active-application.plasmoid

Uninstalling:

plasmapkg2 -r org.kde.activeApplication

Credit where it is due:

Strongly based on [awc] (https://github.com/kotelnik/plasma-applet-active-window-control)
Last changelog:

Everything is cool, but lacking the ability to change the font, and everything is very good

Yes, that's right, but Active Application is meant to be as coherent as possible with plasma global menu, which does not allow changing the font either, but uses the system one. I think this is a nice default, as you can modify system's font to your likes. I wonder, why would you want to change just the font of this applet if you cannot change the one of the global menu?

At first glance it seemed to me that the font supposedly differs from the global menu, it does not look as one with it, but I noticed such a feature that the name of the active application is slightly lower in height than the text of the functions of the global menu, the global menu has some dashes in words and because of this, the active menu looks slightly lower. I don’t know if I could explain well, I don’t know English well. So I made a screen https://dropmefiles.com/gNYFo
