Plasma Javascript Jam 2010

Thu Apr 01, 2010 9:17 pm
The Plasma Javascript Jam 2010 is a friendly competition that rewards creators of the most original, interesting and beautiful Plasma widgets written in Javascript with some great prizes (including a Nokia N900!) and community recognition.

You, the KDE community, are invited to join the judging panel as the "5th Judge". Test, try and discuss the entries listed below and leave your vote on a scale of 1 (lowest) to 10 (highest) for each entry. The community's combined vote will serve as the scores of the fifth judge on the contest judging panel.

You will need KDE Software Compilation version 4.4.2 or newer to appreciate all of the entries (though some will work on version 4.4.0 or higher as well), and when judging keep in mind the four metrics the other judges will be scoring on: Usefulness / Entertainment Quality, Originality, Beauty and Technical Merit.

To view the Plasmoids, click on the name of the Plasmoid in the description to download the Plasmoid package to your computer. You may also download the entire set of entries (in both Plasmoid package form as well as uncompressed) by downloading this all-in-one archive.

You can then either install the individual Plasmoid following the documentation on Userbase, by using plasmapkg from the command line or by unzipping the package into a directory and running plasmoidviewer from within it.

Be sure to check out the configuration options for the Plasmoid and play with it for a bit before passing your final judgment in the polls that follow!

You can vote anytime between now and April 8th, 2010.

Aquarium

Thu Apr 01, 2010 9:55 pm
Aquarium (Author: Ontje Lünsdorf)

This applet tries to simulate the behavior of fish swarms. It's based on the Boid algorithm from Craig Reynolds.

The algorithm has been enhanced with feeding and mating behaviors. A very simple form of evolution is also modelled. So feed your fishes properly and see what the sea holds in store for you! Who knows, maybe you will even spot
the famous jaguar shark!

Google Eyes (Author: Jaldhar H. Vyas)

This is a port of the eyesapplet which was in kdetoys in KDE 3.x but sadly
never made it to 4.x. You can change the color of the eyeballs.

"Heroes of Newerth" Stats

Fri Apr 02, 2010 12:07 am
"Heroes of Newerth" Stats (Author: Henning Fleddermann)

A Plasmoid that retrieves and displays statistics of Heroes of Newerth (see http://www.heroesofnewerth.com) players, including the online-status.
Its purpose is to always know when your (HoN-)friends are online and ready for a little game, and to show you yours and you friend\'s statistics, so you know who's the best, what you need to improve on, and so on.

Instant CSI

Fri Apr 02, 2010 12:08 am
Instant CSI (Author: Matej Repinc)

The Instant CSI Plasmoid: because sometimes, you just want to go out with a bang. The plasmoid plays CSI Miami theme song and slowly blends in a picture of Horatio Caine (David Carruso) wearing his iconic sunglases. It's not too complicated, but it shows the power of Plasma's Javascript API, and how awesome things you can do with a little amount of code.

Key State

Fri Apr 02, 2010 12:10 am
Key State (Author: Martin)

A plasmoid that displays the status of some keys (for example 'Num Lock' and/or 'Meta pressed').

It is highly configurable:

* you can choose between 4 different layouts
* it can display the status of 9 keys
* you can configure a color for each key
* you can set the font for the text
* you can enable the advanced layout settings which give you even more control over the layout of the plasmoid

The code is quite heavy as the total lines count is at 1379 (in 19 files -
which makes ~73 lines per file)

Gitorious project

Short Log

Fri Apr 02, 2010 12:14 am
Short Log (Author: Manuel Unglaub)

Shortlog saves small information snippets for quick retrieval later on. The information snippets or notes get a timestamp to make it easier to find them
again.

The idea is to store information you have no good place for or might not need again in a simple way. But if you need them again, you can simply look
them up.

How to use it:

* Add a new note: insert it and hit "enter" or click "OK"
* Search for a note: the first character needs to be "/", then just input your search pattern (regex possible) and click "OK"
* Delete something: search for it and then click "Delete Selected" to delete all search results
