Add browser action for status reporting

Authored by broulik on Aug 13 2019, 1:59 PM.



This adds a tool bar icon for reporting extension status in lieu of the error notification.
When the extension isn't supported or fails to start, the Plasma icon is crossed out. Especially when synced to a device without plasma-browser-integration, the error notification that used to show up can be annoying and misleading.
When the extension crashes, an overlay is shown.
Currently, the overlay is disabled when the extension is running properly, but additional controls such as sharing and media controls blacklist settings could be added to the browser action. This patch is mostly for the base infrastructure of such a toolbar icon.

Test Plan

Needs proper icon from VDG, cf. Bug 410821

Disabled icon

Explanation for not working

Crashed icon

Crashed explanation

When the host crashes, you also get a DrKonqi dialog but don't think there's a way for us (other than matching the "Native host has exited" string) to tell whether it crashed (DrKonqi) or got disconnected for violating the communication protocol or just quit gracefully because of some other issue (No DrKonqi)

All working

Chrome always shows an extension icon which has a default context menu, on Firefox the icon hides completely in this case.

I will provide more feedback tomorrow, when I have more time.


Why it is empty?



Tested in Firefox:

The PNG is not displayed.

I'm not a fan of using string as enum value (portStatus).


Not used


Or maybe add a breezy background-color :)

For the png problem it was because I had a navbar with the same color.
