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 ! Also, go to Transifex to help me with the translations ! https://www.transifex.com/cqoicebordel/webslice

Note that you may need to install qml-module-qtwebview or qt5-webview for it to work.
Also, some settings are fiddly. It's known. You may have to jiggle them a bit, or refresh the page.

If you are on 19.04 or older, please keep using the legacy version.

What is in :
- Loading a page
- Setting the URL in the prefs
- Auto refresh from conf in prefs
- Zoom
- Choose your background color
- Context menu to manually reload the page
- Context menu to open page, or links in default browser
- A way of automatically scroll to a part of the page
- Inject your own JS in the page
- Show or hide the scrollbars
- Use as a taskbar plasmoid
- Configure from context menu
- Choose compact or full layout
- Choose size of popup
- More URLs through context menu
- Middle click or ctrl+click links to open them in default browser
- Shortcuts (experimental)
- Fill the space (experimental)
- I18n (en+fr+ru+zh_TW)

TODO :
- Moar languages !

Last changelog:

Version 2.2, 2020/09/18 2 months ago

Two small changes here :
First, an option is added to bypass all TLS/SSL/HTTPS errors, and display the site nonetheless. That might help display sites with somewhat dodgy certificates, or auto-signed ones.
Second, and finally, added a way to copy a link's adresse in the context menu.

With the release of Plasma 5.19, Webslice now crashes the desktop. Removing all sections in ~/.config/plasma-org.kde.plasma.desktop-appletsrc that refer to webslice and restarting plasmashll fixes the problem. This is on Tumbleweed, which also got the big GCC 10 update, not sure if relegated.

Hoping for an update.

I'm really sorry to hear that.
I'm not on 5.19 yet, and I don't really have any time to spare in the foreseeable futur. So I can't promise anything. Sorry.
If you feel a bit confortable with code, in ~l/.local/share/plasma/plasmoids/cqcb.plasma.webslice/contents/ui/main.qml, you can try to remove the "experimental" import, and all the line using it (=> if we have the same file, it means removing lines 25, 84, 85, 120, 121 and 124). Do it only if you know what you are doing.
If that doesn't work, I have no idea what would be the cause of the crash, and I would have to dig into it, which I can't do right now :/

Ok. I made a new version special for Plasma 5.19+, it should fix your problem, but remove a couple features. You may have to install the package qml-module-qtwebview too.

I never saw this reply, but I did see the applet was updated. I just wanted to come back and say thank you! Plasma doesn't have any desktop note widgets that work the way I need, so I use Webslice to display an HTML file of desktop shortcuts, terminal commands, and such. It's the only widget on my desktop, and I appreciate you working to keep it going.

No problem. I have no coding experience but I'll poke at the QML file and see what happens. Thanks for the quick reply!

If someone had problems running videos on Youtube via webslice (HTML5 error), you must install the package: gstreamer1.0-libav (Ubuntu 19.04). Thank you for the great plugin! :)

AVOID LIKE PLAGUE.
I installed it and placed it on my desktop. The widget is too small, and after clicking every which way on and around it, in "Add Interface Elements" mode and not, I am unable to discover the way to resize it. I am not stupid. I am not retarded. I was not born in 19th century. I *SHOULD* be able to discover the way to resize the widget by Trying Standard Things.
I am also unable to discover the way to REMOVE this thing from my desktop, other than by uninstalling the addon. Absolutely abysmal, actively hostile user experience here.

I'm sorry, but that is not the widget fault, but the way the widgets works in KDE. You'll have the same issue with *every* widget/plasmoid.
The solution to your problem is to long click on it, or long hover it when the graphical components are unlocked. A column at the right should appear with the resize, rotate, remove, and configure options.
Enjoy ! :)

Can we configure the size of the window when the applet is docked? I would like to use it in Latte Dock but when I click on it the window is tiny.

nice widget I use it to display the Global conciousness Project status in the taskbar.

But I would need something missing.
I set up the widget to DISPLAY the content of the page X, and I would like to be able to open a navigator on this page when clicking on the widget. Today we have to choose between EITHER displaying the content or displaying a button to go to the site X. I would like both : display the content of site X and when clicking beeing able to go to site X with an external navigator.

I'm not sure I understand you : You can go to the website by right clicking in the webpage, and selecting "Open in default browser". In icon mode, it doesn't open in the browser, it only opens a popup with the webpage.

Version 2.1, 2020/08/07 3 months ago

Small change here : if you press "Ctrl" while clicking "Reload" in the context menu, it will bypass the cache, and force a reload.
Can be helpful in some cases

Version 2.0, 2020/07/15 4 months ago

Due to the deprecation of a lib, I had to rewrite almost the whole thing. But it might not work on older machine, so if it's the case, keep the older one.
This version should work from Kubuntu 19.10 onward. At least for the foreseeable future ;)
New things :
Open link in default browser in context menu
Zoom factor setting
Ability to change the icon when iconified
Choose the background color
Scroll to a fixed position (x,y)
Custom User-Agent
Show or hide scrollbars
And two experimental features : Shortcuts, and filling the whole space (useful when in a panel).
Thanks to Roland Reck, Alexey Murz Korepov and Jeff Huang for the translations !!!
Note that you may need to install `qml-module-qtwebview` or `qt5-webview` for it to work.

Version 1.0.1-Special Plasma 5.19+, 2020/06/21 4 months ago

After a few feedback saying that Webslice would crash on Plasma 5.19, I made a version to fix it.
But since this version remove a couple of features, I kept the original version alongside.
A full rewrite will be needed to have the features back, so it'll take time.
Note : You may have to install `qml-module-qtwebview` (could also be called `qt5-webview`)

Update 'de' translation. My big thanks to Roland Reck !!!

Version 1.0, 2018/04/03 4 months ago

Adds a setting for the reload animation, and the ground work for I18n. Please help me for the translations by going to https://www.transifex.com/projects/p/webslice/ !
The translations may not be visible, I don't know why.

Version 0.7.1, 2015/06/10 4 months ago

Adds a busy indicator when reloading, and changed the time unit to be in seconds instead of minutes.
/!\ Be careful, if you have set an auto-reload, you may have to reconfigure it.

Adds the possibility to choose between compact and full representation -> Display the site, or display an icon that open the site in a new panel when clicked.
