Let it snow on your desktop! This widget works like an overlay: snow flakes will always be on top and continue to fall, no matter what you are doing!
Size, speed, count and style can be changed dynamically
Uses special flags of X11
Just QML; no additional install instructions required
Since MouseEvents can't be masked with QML this implementation is a bit different than what is possible with a QT C++ plugin.
I welcome user art for cooler and better snow flakes!
I also welcome ideas for tweaking parameters. There is a lot, i.e. falling speed, speed rotation, direction, swirling speed of snow flakes, opacity, random size calculation, etc...
In case there is interest, I can make a more efficient implememtation in C++.
Should be installable through the KDE Store You can also copy this repository in ./local/share/plasma/plasmoids/
