Plasma

Cool stuff

Plasmoid

A plasmoid is the combination of files that go into creating a plasma plugin. This includes:

* metadata (e.g. .desktop files)
* svg images
* configuration definitions (KConfigXT)
* code (either something Kross groks or a compiled c++ library)
* ...

Applet

An applet is the code part of a plasmoid, technically because it provides a Plasma::Applet object. To users, this will be an implementation detail they probably never see.

Where the activity happens

Containment

What contains the plasma. An applet that can contain other applets - for example, the desktop and panel containments.

Data Engine

Powers the gears that connect to the applet
