Review request for Plasma and Marco Martin.


New version with first feedback integrated (matches 056f68c4c11b8374f2d8af94e8cc8691288cd7ea in kossebau/weatherapplet)

Repository: kdeplasma-addons


So the weather applet in branch kossebau/weatherapplet works okayish now here, both on panel and on containment:

This revival is done as minimal porting, after more considerations I for now kept libplasmaweather as it is where possible (also because I use classes from the lib in the QML plugin and in the applet, so some shared unit is needed).
I propose to do further modernizing & refactoring of the applet code only once it works again completely and can be part of 5.6 release.

Please help with a quick review. And also with a few issues that still need to be solved for a perfect solution. Where I need your, the experts', help, please read on.

`configGeneral.qml` needs larger minimal sizes of the input fields. How can this be done? I am lost with the QQ2 layout approach for now.

Size of applet in fullRepresentation mode when expanded from panel:
while the expanded applet had some kind of sane size all the time I was playing (cmp. the screenshot), at one point the size of the expanded representation only turned into some unusable 16x16 or similar size. For existing applets and new ones.

Q: Is this ported correctly (a hack I found elsewhere), or is there a better way meanwhile?
    QObject *graphicObject = q->property("_plasma_graphicObject").value<QObject *>();
        if (graphicObject) {
            graphicObject->setProperty("busy", false);

Q: `Plasma::Applet::showMessage()` can be ported to what?

Q: `DataEngine::query()` should be ported to? Similar code is unported also in the weather/ions/ion_noaa dataengine in plasma-workspace.

        Plasma::DataEngine::Data data = timeEngine->query(
                 QString(QLatin1String( "Local|Solar|Latitude=%1|Longitude=%2" )).arg(latitude).arg(longitude));
        bool day = data[QLatin1String( "Corrected Elevation" )].toDouble() > 0.0);
