The KDE team has launched a new tutorial portal for developers and non-developers alike who want to learn how to make widgets for the KDE Plasma desktop environment. The site has many examples and a friendly introduction KDE Frameworks API. It s a nice resource if you want to make your first widget program and you know a little or even no C++.

The new KDE Plasma Widget Tutorial can teach you how to make small widget programs for the KDE Plasma desktop environment using examples. It will teach you the basics of the QML language, give you a run-down of the Plasma's QML API and show you how to test your widget so you can see if it works or not.

The KDE Plasma Widget Tutorial is a great resource for both beginners who are unfamiliar with programming in general and programmers who know C++ but do not know anything about KDE.

The new Plasma Widget Tutorial is just a small step in a bigger effort to better document KDE. Several other tutorials are coming.

"It's a steap in the direction of having better developer documentation of the frameworks and Plasma. There is also a kirigami tutorial in preparation and a few others."

Carl Schwan, computer scientist familiar with the KDE project.

You can check it out at develop.kde.org/docs/plasma/widget/.
