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

TODO :
- Moar languages !

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.

This is great! I use it to control my Squeezeboxes (cool, now open source hifi-multiroom music streaming server system), which are usually controlled by an app, or in the browser. Now I have it on the Desktop, which is much nicer then in the Browser!

Thanks for the kind words !
I personnaly uses it to control my set top box, when I'm too lazy to grab the remote ;)

And thanks for the tip about Squeezeboxes, that's exactly what I was looking for without knowing it :)

yeah!
if you want to check out squeezebox: an easy way would be running daphile (http://www.daphile.com/) on an old pc to have the main player and the server. or you install LMS (the server software) on a NAS. for the remote players, a raspberry pi is enough, e.g. with picoreplayer. since raspi's analog out is not that nice, any external DAC is recommended (a USB-DAC, or using hdmi, or even the very nice hifiberry-DAC, which is a plugon-card...). but i think there are even ways to run the LMS server on a raspberry pi. very nice, stable system!

Thanks for the comment and the useful idea :)

As for the reloader animation (if in fact that's what you were talking about), yes, I can and will add it in the options.
But as usual, I don't know when I'll work on this, so please be patient. It will come, but I don't know when :)

Love this Plasmoid. Thanks so much. I've found it useful for uses it's probably not intended for as well as displaying web data :) As there's, as yet, no replacement for the KDE4 plasmoid stdin, I've found that I can use your webslice to sidestep the issue by using a file:/some.txt to display the output from a shell script.
