Re: Are KDE applications extensible with Javascript like Plasma is?




I am after understanding in a general sense how KDE applications can be extended at runtime. Are there particular Qt classes that enable this?

Let me ask a more concrete question that may be easier to answer - can you give me an example of a KDE app that's extensilble?

Thanks in advance for taking the time to answer these questions.
