Send to EidoGo 1.2 now Public!

leave a comment »

It took a few weeks, but my bid to have the Send to EidoGo add-on for Firefox be made a public extension has succeeded! 🙂 You can find it at its new home as Addon 6774 on the Add-ons for Firefox homepage. Thanks to all of the users who downloaded, used, and reviewed the extension for the last two years. (Extra bonus points for those who reminded me every time I let the compatibility version string fall behind…)

Since the old support post died with my last host, I guess I will link this new post as the “support site” for the extension, since I don’t anticipate too many problems with such a simple piece of code 🙂 Leave a comment if there’s anything I need to fix, change, or add to it. Cheers!

Send to EidoGo 1.2

leave a comment »

I’ve gotten a lot of e-mails about the death of the Send to EidoGo Firefox Plugin, precipitated by two things:

  • I wasn’t keeping up-to-date with the compatibility version string as Firefox put out newer versions.
  • My credit card expired, which led to the cancellation of my old host (http://komrades.org)

The former issue can be solved by disabling compatibility checking, and the latter by grabbing it from the experimental add-on site hosted by Mozilla, but of course neither of these are the most user-friendly solutions.

So, sorry about the wait — I’ve updated the maxVersion up to 3.6, so it should be safe for the next little while. Also, although it’s still available at the Mozilla-hosted hub (which I want to make the “official” distribution point from now on — I should tell Justin Kramer to update the link), it’s not discoverable unless you’re logged in as a developer. So I’ve begun the process of nominating the extension for public release. Thanks for all the positive reviews and links, guys 🙂 It should help with the approval process, hopefully enough to counteract the “widely useful” requirement for public extensions. With any luck in a week or two, Google searches for EidoGo will turn up the Mozilla link instead of the old, dead blog link.
