Port to ECMAddQmlModule

Authored by kossebau on May 22 2019, 5:55 PM.


Group Reviewers

While the current logic for Plasma QML modules is stable and all repeated
data has been already repeated, porting to the new macros of ECMAddQmlModule
can help others to learn about the macros and how to use them.

Perhaps there could also be a special macro for the generation stuff being
done for components3, for that some other potential users would be first
good to have to know more patterns.

also remove include of ECMGenerateQmlTypes, newer macros cover that as well

The diff between the generated qmldir files and the manually written ones looks good. And also showed the one of plasmacore has some left-over (see D21350)


All the repeated names make me wonder if the macro could be made even more nice by having it autoderive the type name from the file. At least all the files in Plasma and the mojority in my own projects match this naming pattern.

As that might blow up the macro code a bit, first waiting for principal feedback.

Not sure of usefulness (see D20984#543937), so discarding myself. Happy to see someone else take over though if they feel this improves things.
