Device specific workspaces

The Plasma Device shell that is used in the Plasma Active tablet shell is a generic user interface loader that doesn't provide any UI by itself.

The device shell will load:

  • A set of QML files that will define the behavior of the workspace for this form factor, in the form of a Plasma::Package file structure
  • That package may eventually load other packages via QML
  • The plasma containments will be loaded and put into the scene
  • Every activity corresponds to 1 containment
  • there may be containments not linked to activities (e.g. panels)
  • the containment are placed in the screen by logic written in JavaScript inside the main homescreen QML package
