The engine provides the applet with data, so it's not a plasmoid (=applet) on its own.

Just look through the source in the link given above. Or look into the sources on your disk at home. Or ask Aaron ;)

Thanks you!! This is my first QT program EVER so I'm learning as I go. I'm sure I've made a few mistakes along the way.

I appreciate the information about the weather engine. I have a question though. Is the weather engine designed to retrieve weather data for other plasmoids or is it its own plasmoid?

I've had a really difficult time finding good documentation for plasma. It's probably changing daily so maybe documentation is premature. I've managed to create my plasmoid using some of the basic documentation that is available and also reading LOTS of plasmoid code from other developers.

Thanks for the comment.
