Happy New Years!

I’d like to wish everyone a safe, healthy and happy new years! Not sure if I’ll be able to put a lot of work into the extensions due to school, but I’ll definitely be updating them for the new browser releases.

See you in ’09!

Email This! Update Coming Soon

It’s been a little over four months since the last Email This! update, so i figure I’ll do another update whilst I have time.

The following updates will definitely (for a fact, 100%) appear in the next update:

  • Firefox maximum version increased to 3.2a1pre
  • Flock maximum version increased to 2.0
  • Songbird maximum version increased to 1.0
  • Code will be revamped
  • Get rid of the “–” between link & description

I’m working on the following:

  • -Adding option that will allow users to only have the right-click menu options they want.
  • -Fix Hotkeys

Alright, expect an update after the new year. The latter features may not appear, but I’m definitely going to try to implement them.

FacePAD: Facebook Photo Album Downloader v0.5.4 Released!

Diana and I (pictured here) have finished putting tohether v0.5.4. We’ve completely revamped the code, and simultaneously beefed up our JavaScript skills. This update should be completely compatible with Mozilla’s standards. I’ll post another update once I find out if our extension was moved from the sandbox to Mozilla’s public downloading domain. I’d also like to give a special shout out to shadoefax, ake79, and brody from Mozilla Forums for all of their assistance, especially ake79.

The release info for 0.5.4 is below. FacePAD is now available for download from lazyrussian.com & mozilla.com.

General Information
FacePAD, better known as the Facebook Photo Album Downloader will allow you to download your friends’ facebook albums, en masse, with the click of a button. This extension was originally developed by Nic Holliday. I took the liberty of updating this extension for Firefox 3 since he didn’t. In the process, I’ve revamped his code and made it compliant with Mozilla’s standards & Facebook’s new interface. As of v0.5.4, this project is now shared between myself and Diana Jaunzeikare.

Functionality
To download photos from the an album, right-click (with your mouse) on the name/link of a facebook album and click the Download Album with FacePAD option. If you did this properly, a JavaScript pop-up will appear telling you to wait a moment while it initiates the download process. Press OK and the photos will be downloaded to Firefox’s default download directory. If their are more than one page of photos, then more than one JavaScript pop-up will appear (one for each page, where 1 page = 20 photos). Example of alerts below image.

Example: 55 Photos
Alert 1: Downloading 20 Photos from page 1
Alert 2: Downloading 20 Photos from page 2
Alert 3: Downloading 15 Photos from page 3

Download
Download from Lazyrussian – Version 0.5.4
Download from Mozilla – Version 0.5.4 (This add-on is still in the “Sand-Box” and is awaiting approval from Mozilla)

Release Notes
Version 0.5.4 (December 29, 2008)
1. Revamped Code (from head to toe).

FacePAD: Facebook Photo Album Downloader v0.5.3 Released!

December 28, 2008 8 comments

Aloha!

About 10 hours after I released version 0.5.2, I made a few internal (code) changes and released 0.5.3. These changes were the first of two (hopefully) that will bring my extension out of Mozilla’s sandbox, and into the public arena. Part two (v0.5.4) is almost done. I’m in need of a bit of help on the code since my JavaScript knowledge is lacking (hey, I’m a physicist, not a programmer =p). A few people at the Mozilla Forums are currently helping me out, so hopefully I’ll have v0.5.4 released before new years!

Here’s the release info for 0.5.3, which is available to download from lazyrussian.com & mozilla.com.

Download
Download from Lazyrussian – Version 0.5.3
Download from Mozilla – Version 0.5.3 (This add-on is still in the “Sand-Box” and is awaiting approval from Mozilla)

Upcoming Features
The only feature I’m currently working on is allowing the user to specify a custom download directory upon downloading a photo album. I’ve got about 50% of this feature coded already, but I’ve been running into issues in a couple places. Check back periodically for updates.

Release Notes
Version 0.5.3 (December 26, 2008)
1. Removed all global/loose variables within the code.
2. Download dialogue now states which page it is downloading photos from.
