Description:

This plasmoid adds the focused application title (and icon).
Plasmoid with some ideas from activewindowcontrol by Martin Kotelnik, but simplified and changed as this one just adds the window title and the icon.

9 +I'd just changed Active Windows Control because the global menu doesn't work right. So, I prefer this widget + global menu (default)

In general liking this plasmoid. The one minor complaint, which might not be worth fixing is that only having the option to bold or caps the application title is somewhat limiting. Specifically, bold doesn't work with my main font because it lacks an official "bold" style and instead calls it's bold "demi-bold" or something silly like that. Also caps doesn't seem to do anything. Maybe also a problem with the font.

Hi ! Thanks for this plasmoid ! I used to use Active Window Control but I didn't manage to get it to work properly with the new global menu so I had to split and use 3 plasmoids :-) Application title on the left, the new global menu in the middle and active window control on the right, as you can see on this screenshot :

I have minor issues though (using Plasma 5.13.2, KDE Neon) :
- there's a slight white space on the left I cannot get rid of
- when the window is unfocused, the title is still displayed (but not in bold, contrary to my setting)

Cheers !

Hi, I removed the white space, anchoring everything to the left. It makes sense. Will be included in next release.
About, the other issue it is following what the global menu (appMenuModel component, menuAvailable method) is giving, so I cannot change. It's defined that label has disabled style whenever window has menu available or window is not active, but it doesn't affect font weight directly.
Look at https://gitlab.com/aleixq/apptitle-plasmoid/blob/master/org.communia.apptitle/contents/ui/main.qml#L120 .

I cannot know it, but maybe your theme overrides the font weight in "label" disabled style...

Anyway, next time please use gitlab issues to contribute to widget developing. Thank's for using and reporting!

Hi ! Thanks for the nice reply & the quick fix ! OK, I'll use gitlab for my next report ! I'm replying here as we began, regarding this one.
I'm actually using the default KDE theme.
Regarding the "[in]active" window status, that is to say, the fact the window title is usually (but not always) displayed even if the window is minimized or closed, do you think it's actually a bug somewhere in KDE framework -- in which case, should I file a bug ?
BTW, I noticed that with some apps, like Clementine, when minimized, sometimes, only the title is shown, global menu is empty, sometimes, both are show. (occurs when focusing / unfocusing the window several times in a row).
Finally, this applies to your plasmoid but also to the global menu plasmoid, there's a slight delay when switching windows, which give the feeling it is flickering. But in the case of "Application title" that's less distracting as the label doesn't turn blank in the meantime.
Cheers ! & thanks again.

It is not working in version Plasma 5.13. Too bad, I always used this extension.

It's working again. The migration to gitlab changed the release workflow...
