Description:

This is a fork of Tiled Menu (https://store.kde.org/p/1160672/) with the intention of imitating the functions of the old shelf plasmoid (https://www.maketecheasier.com/easy-organization-with-kde-plasma-shelf-widget/). It shows one, and only one, category of apps, plus the option of showing pinned favorites.

Possible use cases (see videos):
- Use it in a lateral panel, changing the icon for the icon of the category.
- If you use activities, put it on the desktop. For example, in the work activity you can put the category office.
- Using the grouping plasmoid, you can imitate the layout of kde 4 notebook desktop. The plasmoid name changes dynamically, and the titles in the container
- An what ever you want...

However, this plasmoid doesn't wants to be a complete substitute of the original one, so the lateral bar and search bar are removed (you cant use it to exit session, for example). It works best in combination with any of the menus included with plasma, including the original Tile Menu.

Included versions for plasma 5.8 and 5.9+

Hello, thanks for sharing your work here on store.kde.org. When trying to install this product, the launcher does not show up under "Alternatives" unless I uncomment the last line in metadata.desktop. Could you maybe update the launcher such that users will be able to see this option right away? That'd be great.

That was intentional, as when I made the fork I was thinking in the use cases proposed.

As this will only show one category, I still don't think it should be considered as an alternative of a full fledged launcher, as I stated in the description.

You installed the wrong version.

See that there is a version for plasma 5.8 (with 5.8 in the name), and another for plasma 5.9 and beyond (again see the name).
