Spudfiles extension for Firefox

Unread postAuthor: benstern » Mon Oct 29, 2007 6:39 pm

I told you guys awhile ago I had something big in store for Spudfiles and here it is.

It consists of a toolbar and a right click (context) menu.

The toolbar has links to all the important parts of Spudfiles. It also has a textbox which allows you to search Spudfiles, the Spudtech archive, and the spudwiki from the toolbar.

The right click menu helps GREATLY when posting as it puts BBcode and special tags in your post.
Some limited help for that is available here: http://bbcodextra.extenzilla.org/index. ... =eng&sez=2
(I used some code from an extension that used code from the BBcode eXtra extension.)

Download it either from the official Firefox addons site or my site.
(you need to register on the addons site to get to my extension because it is in the "Sandbox") If you download it from the addons site please give it a good review!

Thanks!
If there are any features you guys would want just tell me and I will see if I can't work em into a later version.

And yes, I did recycle some images from my SGTC toolbar for firefox.

One thing that would be nice is a RSS for the recent posts. That would be sweet if you could incorporate that into the next version. 8)

I don't think spudfiles has an RSS stream. I will however try to get a feature like that into the extension somehow.

I don't know it seems cool, but I'm a little skeptical about downloading stuff like this,

how much space does this take up, does it start up when I turn on the computer, how might it affect the other users since only I use spudfiles

It takes up around 54kb.....thats it. It should not affect other users at all since each should have their own Firefox profile.
Also if you want to inspect the source code you can!
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefo ... owse/20533
(click the names of directories within the extension to expand them.)

It can't start up when you start a computer. It is entirely dependent on firefox to be running, thus an extension.

How could this go about becoming an approved extension? A signed trusted extension...

Well I need to iron out one error. It needs good reviews and a solid rating in the sandbox.

* Preview images are required for themes and highly recommended for all other add-on types.
* The add-on should have spent enough time in the sandbox to accumulate reviews and feedback from users. Reviews are required to become public.
* Public add-ons have a higher quality bar than sandbox add-ons and should enhance the web.
* Full nomination criteria is available in the Add-on Policy.

Alright well until that happens (or if it ever even does) then I am giving it the PCGUY approval!

I have reviewed all source code, all appears to be clean of anything of anything "bad" for your computer.

That's pretty neat. I like it.

It's probably worth it just for the increased searching ease, although I'm sure I'll mix the search box up with my Google toolbar a couple of times.

EDIT: I have revised my opinion. It's much better than that.

2nd edit: But I have now mixed it up with the google toolbar twice.
