Moizlla Plugin Development

Steps to create a mozilla plugin>

1) You need Mozilla Firefox Web Browser (Download from: http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/)

2) Initail steps for a Hello World program is here : http://developer.mozilla.org/en/docs/Building_an_Extension

The package is zip file saved with xpi ( pronounced as zippi ). And the Interfacing language is called XUL

You can edit and test your xul templating using this url: http://ted.mielczarek.org/code/mozilla/xuledit/xuledit.xul

The Browser itself written in XUL format. Its basic structure is called XUL Overlay. We can override any part of that overlay with id. (See: http://developer.mozilla.org/en/docs/XUL_Overlays)

This is how different plugin’s are integrated with already existing mozilla browser. You can Override, Expand, or add separate window for your application.

Since the usage of desktop application are increasing and the need of javascript have more significant nowadays ( Ajax, Flash, Flex, Adobe Air) , We should follow client side developments.

If XUL is for templating , Javascript is action creator here. You can write your code in javascript.

After creating your application , you can showcase it on firefox extension folder. They put your code in sandbox. After testing, if it is an useful one, they will add it to their public package listing so that
everybody can access you extension.

So start your Hello World Application with Mozilla Plugin NOW .

Yahoo Media Player – An Eye Candy Script

javascript player, media player, online player, open source player, sans review, yahoo Voice your views  

I found an interesting script from Yahoo to power our website, its just a java script Media Player which makes a playlist from the list of .mp3 files included in our HTML pages. I found yahoo tagging this as revolutionary music player which plays music in our website….I have listed the bullet points they mentioned on this new js

  • Adds audio to your site with one line of HTML
  • Uses simple, easy-to-hack HTML instead of complicated proprietar y markup, ushering in the REAL Media Web
  • Magical floating design never gets lost, is available when you need it, gets out of your way when you don’t need it
  • Automatically finds all audio links on your page, turning your page into a playlist
  • Plays all your blog entries with a single button click
  • Allows you to put the play buttons where they belong: IN CONTEX T
  • Keeps the user in the page rather than sending them away to a media player
  • Picks up your images and adds them as cover art
  • Requires no download, install or maintenance

I believe yahoo can even more work on this kind of add-ons to personalize web pages, and they can release source codes to open community to work on them.

What you have to do, is just add this js file below your html page which contains some mp3 href

 <script type="text/javascript" src="http://mediaplayer.yahoo.com/js">

Firefox reaches one billion Downloads

Firefox = One Billion Happy Browsers

On Friday, Mozilla Firefox was downloaded for the one billionth time since the release of 1.0 in 2004. To help celebrate the news, Mozilla has released a new web site called One Billion + You.

From there, you can easily post to Twitter how much one billion really is, such as:

  • A bowl big enough to fit one billion goldfish would be as big as a stadium.
  • One billion stacked coins would reach nearly 1,000 miles high.
  • One billion centimeters is approximately the distance from Chicago to Tokyo.
  • One billion seconds is roughly 31.7 years.
  • One billion kilograms is equal to the weight of 250,000 elephants.
  • One billion credit cards weigh as much as fifty-two blue whales.

If that wasn’t enough, you can also make up your own to share on Twitter or Facebook. Also don’t forget to decorate your Twitter icon with a Twibbon too.
