This plugin will allow users to use other kde connect devices as external displays.
It will use krfb-virtualmonitor to create it and feed the information and also request an URL to be opened on the other device that should be rendering the contents.
Upon connection, we'll be notifying under kdeconnect.virtualmonitor about our "resolutions, which include objects with a "resolution" and a "scale". These will provide the information necessary to issue a remote feed.
When a virtual monitor is requested, kdeconnect.virtualmonitor.request will include a "url" field that contains all information necessary to connect to the created feed. The remote client needs to support this url type.

Writing a plugin for KDE Connect
For the desktop client (this project):
1. Enter the "plugins" directory. 2. Copy the "ping" under a different name ("findmyphone" in this example). 3. Add "add_subdirectory(findmyphone)" to CMakeLists.txt after the others "add_subdirectory". 4. Enter the new "findmyphone" directory. 5. Edit CMakeLists.txt by replacing "ping" with "findmyphone". 6. Rename other files in this directory by replacing "ping" with "findmyphone" 7. Write a description of your plugin into "README" 8. Edit findmyphoneplugin.cpp and findmyphoneplugin.h. A. Change license header. B. Replace (case sensitive) "ping" with "findmyphone", "PingPlugin" with "FindMyPhonePlugin" and "PING" with "FINDMYPHONE". 9. Edit kdeconnect_findmyphone.json file: A. Replace "ping" with "findmyphone". B. Change name, description, icon, author, email, version, website, license info. C. Remove all the translations D. Set X-KDEConnect-SupportedPacketType and X-KDEConnect-OutgoingPacketType to the packet type your plugin will receive and send, respectively. In this example this is "kdeconnect.findmyphone". Make sure that this matches what is defined in the findmyphoneplugin.h file (in the line "#define PACKET_TYPE_..."), and also in Android. 10. Now you have an empty skeleton to implement your new plugin logic.
