Regarding Development on Plasmoids:

The following link will prove quite useful in the development of plasmoids:

1.) A Brief Tutorial on Plasmoids Development using Javascript:

2.) The API Reference for Javascript Plasmoids:

Build Service Interfacing:

The plasma widgets will interface will interact with the Build Service with a DataEngine. The DataEngine (obsdataengine) has been developed in C++, and uses Qt Network and Qt XML libraries for retrieving and setting data, which will ultimately be used by the widget.

The dataengine will use the API call as a parameter, and will fetch the data from the API, and set it for use with the widget.

Current Status on the Project:

The project is in development, with three widgets complete, but requiring some improvements. The widgets related to OBS Status, Project Status, and Request Lists are more or less complete.
