I don't Know anything about design or development so please excuse any wrong terminology. I would like to integrate an application that will allow me to change the clock in Plasma Style directly from System Settings. I have converted a few of the svg's in Cairo-Clocks to work in Plasma that I have downloaded from the KDE store https://store.kde.org/browse/cat/208/order/latest and have uploaded some of them at https://imgur.com/gallery/e9mcibD to give you an idea of what I'm talking about. But installing the .svg onto the desktop is not easy for the average user. So if someone could help me develop/design an application that will either give me a clocks setting in System Settings that will allow me to download clock svg's from Discover and install it onto the desktop and store them in a folder similar to how the wallpaper changer works or do it by right clicking on the clock itself and adding an option to change and download clocks from there. Another option would be to have an application in Discover that could do the same thing. I have found three other clocks in Discover (SmoothX, Kclock, and Timekeeper) but in two of them you need to install them in a difficult process of finding folders and deleting and pasting and the other one doesn't work at all. I like KDE because of how customizable it is but I think it would be better if you could use the Global Theme and Plasma Style you want and not get forced to use the clock that came with it without a lot of work. If anybody could help me this would be greatly appreciated.

I have made an image using the VDG Mockup ToolKit. I Hope this would I'd like to do a little clearer.
I forgot to add a way to contact me if you have any questions or suggestions so here is my E-mail address ( firstname.lastname@example.org). I'm also trying to build this in Qt Quick, but I'm having issues right now with the program and am waiting for a bug fix. I haven't done anything like this before so it might be a little slow, but it doesn't look too difficult.
I think I have done this image thing wrong to paste it on this post so here is the URL https://imgur.com/gallery/jMUOj0m so you can get an idea of what I'm talking about.
Icoluln't figure out how to paste an image here so I linked it to flickr and imgur. I'll figure out the image pasting later. Sorry about that.
