Description Chris Holland 2017-11-07 18:07:31 UTC
We can look at plasma-workspace/wallpapers/image for an example of how to do this.

1. Add "get-hot-new-stuff" button to the right of the plugin dropdown in:

import org.kde.kconfig 1.0 // for KAuthorized

QtControls.Button {
    iconName: "get-hot-new-stuff"
    visible: KAuthorized.authorize("ghns")
    onClicked: _____.getNewWallpaperPlugin(this)

Note that we'll need to create a new C++ function similar to:
* https://github.com/KDE/plasma-workspace/blob/master/wallpapers/image/image.cpp#L594
* https://github.com/KDE/plasma-workspace/blob/master/components/shellprivate/widgetexplorer/widgetexplorer.cpp#L443

The widget explorer might be more relevant.

Once we have the code, we can make a wallpaperplugin.knsrc (probably in plasma-workspace).

Lastly we need to create a new category on store.kde.org (this could be done now actually).
We'll also need to move this product (https://store.kde.org/p/1197828/) which is current incorrectly in the Plasma Widget category.
