Tea Cooker

Tea Cooker

Tea Cooker is a plasmoid to assist all lovers of tea in the task of steeping tea for just the perfect length of time.

Right click on the plasmoid to get a list of teas to steep, stop steeping and such. When tea is done a sound is played through phonon that keeps playing periodically until the widget is activated (apparently phonon does this automatically and I rather like the feature).

I'm seeing a lot of downloads, but no votes. Please vote if you like it and withhold from voting if you don't (tell me what you don't like and I'll improve Tea Cooker ;) )

-fix notifications through knotify
-add/configure teas
-more than one steeping at a time
-different icons for different types of tea

I wouldn't trust binary packages created by a random guy, especially if he calls himself "warezman" and has nearly no information in his profile. So I recomment removing the link again.

That's ... a good point. Sorry, I'm still a bit new at this whole compiled-app-distribution because I'm used to php.

 Nice work

This is nice.

A few feature requests:

1) configurable tea is going to be great

2) a left mouse button behaviour similar to kteatime:
[if no timer running, then show basic tea selections (no config), else reset or pause time or whatever]

 into kdeplasma-addons?

 by aseigo on: Jan 15 2009

hi =)

cool little plasmoid there.

since we used to ship a tea cooker with kde, it wouldn't be out of the question to put this directly into kdeplasma-addons if you'd like for kde 4.3.

two small things would need to be done first, though:

* there are hardcoded colours; that's no good =) we would need to replace those with colours from the plasma theme.

* the animation should use Animator::customAnimation so that timers can be aligned and the user can turn them off (e.g. when operating over a network).

these are both trivial things, however.

(oh, and bonus points if you'd be cool with formatting the code to follow the kdelibs coding style, though that's not a strict requirement for kdeplasma-addons)

if you're interested, email us at plasma-devel at kde dot org..

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
