Develop Javascript Plasmoids on openSUSE

Aaron, Sandro, moofang, Shantanu and Diego have been hacking up a Plasma storm lately on the Javascript bindings for Plasma and the Plasmate builder tool. Since good code is running code, and running code is a lot easier when somebody else builds it and packages it, I've updated the Plasmate packages in KDE:KDE4:Playground to 0.1alpha2 and have updated the javascript bindings in our KDE SC 4.4.1 packages to include Aaron's latest errata - no need to update yourselves.

So it's even easier to take part in the Plasma Javascript Jam Session competition now.

And while you're at it, how about completing the loop by using our kde-obs-generator to package your plasmoids and make them available on, so others can start to download and improve them directly in Plasmate? Free Software virtuous circle FTW!


You may not know me but I drifted around with moofang and Diego and I must say that I am a huge fan of your work especially with languages and Javascript tweaks. Plasma is the way to go nowadays and with pre-constructed packages, it is a lot easier than in the early days when every code must be manually encrypted and monitored. I have written academic essays and some of them have even been published in independent journals about science and technology and I must say that the tips you have given me really helped me a lot especially in developing my insights and recommendations. Thanks and I'll be coming back from time to time. Keep on rocking, dude.
