Description:

Here is Webslice.

It's a window on the web. Like a browser, but without controls, and with static URLs (defined in the prefs) to load from.

It's a cheap way of creating plasmoids from webpages !

If you know ways of helping me building this plasmoid, please go to the Github page ! I'm a noob in QML and any help is welcome. Also, go to Transifex to help me with the translations ! https://www.transifex.com/cqoicebordel/webslice


What is in :
- Loading a page
- Setting the URL in the prefs
- Auto refresh from conf in prefs
- Hack to have a good zoom on the page
- Transparent background
- Right click menu to manually reload the page
- A way of automatically scroll to a part of the page
- Adjust the preferred width (useful to trigger mobile or desktop version of websites)
- Inject your own JS in the page
- Use as a taskbar plasmoid
- Configure from context menu
- Choose compact or full layout
- Choose size of popup
- More URLs through context menu
- I18n (en+fr+es+pt_BR+zh_TW)
- Middle click or ctrl+click links to open them in default browser

I'd like to try the one you've just recommended... so I may see if it's operation is suitable for the kind of web site I want to display.

It's easy, it's Web Slice ;)
Like I said, it seems to be in the plasma-widgets-addons package, but I can't be sure, neither test it for you because I don't have a machine running KDE 4.X now...

Those infos should be enough. In any case, I don't have more. All I can do is continue developping my version which won't work in KDE 4.X, sorry.

OK, thanks, now I see the difference. For the benefit of other KDE 4.x users who want to display web content on their Desktop:

You have to use the Plasmoid that shows up in "Add Wigets" from your version of KDE. That Plasmoid will _not_ be the one by this author, even though their names appear similar, at first glance.

The two different Plasmoids have a very small difference in their names, as I finally realized: This one, that's only for KDE 5.x, is named "Webslice" and the one for only v4.x is "Web Slice".

After seeing the space, I was further confused because there is a near-overlap in version numbers: the other Plasmoid has as a final version v0.3, and this one has an intermediate version of v0.3.0. But this does not mean they are one and the same.

I now realize that _all_ versions of Webslice are incompatible with the earlier KDE, and not just the ones that follow v0.3.0

The one that runs on KDE 4.x was written by Sebastian Kuegler; however -- neither his name nor the version number appear in the running Plasmoid, itself -- and, it's only briefly displayed, just as you prepare to load it.

Thanks for your patience while I figured this out!

Ah yes, I understand what was the issue.
I named my plasmoid Webslice because it was the successor of the other one, but I didn't expect it to show in the search result in KDE 4.X.

Thanks for bringing back the answer !

I'm running LinuxMint Qiana KDE 4.13.3 and when I tried to use the latest version I got only a red icon in the system tray area, unresponsive to clicks.
The I uninstalled that, and loaded the earlier version -- and that worked immediately. But, of course, I would like to run the latest version!
Is there a KDE version requirement, or do I need to install dependencies? If yes, exact names would be appreciated! If I need to upgrade KDE, how far must I go before webslice begin to work?

Although it's programming might be buggy. It just it does what it's meant to be:
It displays any webpage or webapp directly on your desktop and refreshes automatically. It could be a great wrapper for many webapps, so you don't have to install dozens of different widgets.
Such a widget, desklet, tile or whatever you might call it should exist for any OS!
Very useful!
Thanks!
