can you explain why it should be configurable?


sharing a lesson learned from KWin: if you dependency inject the KSharedConfig you get two advantages:

  1. No stringly-typed names like plasmarc
  2. the class is easier to test as in a unit test you can inject a dummy KSharedConfig exactly with the key/values as one needs.

this configuration is intended for kiosk setups?

if it's hidden, there is always the risk of bitrot

Is there no mechanism inside Plasma to notice when the config changes?

davidedmundson added inline comments.

KDirWatch::self() is a singleton

consider the case where two things use the singleton, you use it to monitor ~/.plasmarc and another uses it to monitor /tmp/asdfadf this signal will be emitted in both cases. You should use the parameter in the signal to do some filtering.
