color picker plasmoid

Jump to: navigation, search

Anne pointed me to your work on the color picker Plasmoid documentation. It looks really good. Would you like to move it to Plasma/ColorPicker and then we can add the Widgets category to the page and reference it from relevant documentation points about KDE Plasma?

Cheers :)

Thanks for the opportunity to contribute.

I guess this is a question for both you and Anne. What is the preferred reference: plasmoid or widget? In various places the UserBase documentation seems to emphasize one then the other.

Good question; we should use the term "widget" everywhere generically. "Plasmoid" is a technical term, really: we use it to differentiate native Plasma widgets from the other widgets that Plasma Desktop supports (Google Gadgets, Superkaramba, etc). They are all widgets, so we have a term to be able to identify native Plasma widgets when having technical discussions. In documentation, though, I don't think it matters to the user and so we should stick with "widget".
