More progress this week: Metabookmarks is now on github!
I’ve sidelined the custom protocol for now and I’m planning to use a
chrome:// content link instead, specified in the chrome.manifest file. This allows arbitrary content files to be bundled inside the plugin file and accessed via
chrome:// URLs, and hopefully will get me well on the way.
The build script also uses the excellent Extension Auto-Installer add-on to ‘push’ the update to Firefox immediately.
So, my pencils are nice & sharp, the desk is tidy and I’m ready to start some serious hacking!
