FlashTracer for Firebug

FBTracer in action

watch Recently I decided to write my old flash tracer firefox extension from scratch because I found it not really useful (at least for me) and too “expensive”, moreover when using firebug at the same time.

So I made a quick test to see how much was hard to create a new panel inside firebug to display flash tracer.
This is the result of what I did right now. It does not have all the features of the old extension, it just display the flash traces. Anyway it is actually in early stage development, updates will come during next days.
Here the instructions and the download link (remrmber to install the flashplayer debugger and firebug first!):

Alchemy installation problems under OSX

watch I’m writing this little issue I discovered today in the alchemy installation under OSX, in case someone else is having the same problem…

In fact, today I decided to makes a little swc library for an actionscript project using alchemy ( because of the lacks of union in flash ), so I downloaded the alchemy toolkit for OSX.

go

I spent a couple of hours trying to make it working on my Snow Leopard and because I’m not a shell and perl expert I finally moved to the linux toolkit under ubuntu ( even if on linux the Flex builder is really far to be usable!)
Anyway, this evening I decided to spend some more time trying to understand why when I was trying to execute the alchemy “ http://www.dilmah.pl/?admission-essay-writing-zoo admission essay writing zoo gcc” script ( the ones inside the achacks folder, which is a perl script) nothing happened.
After long time with old style “print” debugging strategy, at the end I discovered an error in the “ http://www.yuceajans.com/introduction-paragraph-essay-help/ introduction paragraph essay help config” script in the main alchemy installation folder.
At this line (line 33):
1
if echo $MACHTYPE | grep darwin &> /dev/null; then
I had to modify it into:
1
if echo $MACHTYPE | grep -i darwin &> /dev/null; then
because the command “echo $MACHTYPE” outputs “ mba admission help x86_64-Apple-Darwin“, with the uppercase “D”.
In fact, after that modification everything finally worked!

Flash Switcher for Windows, OSX and Linux

buy microsoft lync With the upcoming release of Firefox 3 I thought I had to verify my extensions to see if they work with the new Firefox version too.
For the first version of flash switcher I did two different extensions for Windows and Mac. That was a problem for maintenance.

http://www.siliconp.de/?proofreading-services-online This time I wrote the extension from scratch and I decided to make it as much as cross platform as possible. Moreover I wanted to make the installation of new plugins easier than in the previous version of flash switcher extension ( where you had to copy manually the plugin file into the extension’s directory.. ).

http://www.socio.msu.ru/?college-essays-where-can-i-have-someone-write-it-for-me Thus now this extension works ( at least with my tests and people who tested it ) with Windows, OSX and Linux. Specifically it has been tested on:

  • Windows XP
  • Ubuntu linux 8.04
  • OSX Leopard and Tiger

http://www.il-bandito.com/ocr-science-coursework-help/ Also the installation of new plugins now it’s easy. Just click on the installed flash plugin and click “save”. Well, I think it’s quite easy 🙂

http://www.dekart.com/?buy-essays-online-construction-safety buy essays online construction safety The only issue with the new extension is that it’s quite big because it comes with 2 flash versions for every OS platform. So it’s about comparative essay help 14Mb.

http://myvespagroup.com/?p=homework-should-be-banned-facts I also did a couple of video to show how it currently works on different platforms. Currently there are 2 videos (ubuntu and osx usage).

FlashTracer 2.1.0

http://kormoranetterem.hu/?p=short-persuasive-essay Thanks to Chad Upton who sent me some suggestions on how to improve FlashTracer I recently updated this extension adding some new features beside those already installed.
Now it is possible to define rules ( using the options panel ), which allow you to style the output messages (defining font-weight, font-style, color and text underline); they can work also like a filter to discard all the messages which don’t match the rules.

http://rest-cor.org/?professional-writing-kutztown professional writing kutztown I also took advantage of this update to write the extension from scratch. It was my first extension and so the code wasn’t so clear, moreover I learnt how to use xul commands and observers.
I tested this extension on write for me Vista, how to compose a business plan Ubuntu 7.10 and http://www.ngocacr.com/start-my-homework-games/ start my homework games OSX 10.4. Here some screenshots of the running extension on those different OS:

Flash Switcher for OSX

After the many requests of a mac OSX version of my last Firefox plugin I finally was able to create it.
I have to say I had much more difficulties rather than the one for Windows.
For what I could understand Firefox for Windows unload the http://vaygaptrongngay.com/global-warming-prevention-and-eassy/ global warming prevention and eassy NPSWF32.dll once there are no pages displaying an swf. In fact (under windows) before switching plugin I have to be sure there are no pages wih an swf within, then I can clear the dll and copy the new one.

Instead Firefox for OSX  doesn’t unload the enter Flash Player.plugin even when there are no flash contents. For that reason I could not delete the current plugin file, so I decided to first move the running plugin into Trash and then copy the new one in the Internet Plug-ins folder and then ask user to restart Firefox. In this way everything seems to work clean.

Another problem is the fact there are 2 different plugin file for mac Intel and mac PPC. So I had to create 2 different .xpi installers.
Many thanks to Gabriele Farina who help me with this, I completely forgot the fact there were 2 different installer under Mac.

Here the installers (btw, I’m not 100% sure they will work.. a better test should be done):

P.S. Another thing regarding my recent interest on Firefox plugin development.
This morning Jesse Stratford mailed me saying he wrote an article about me (yeas, about me! ooh what a great honor):

SEPY for OSX 10.4

SEPY ActionScript Editor running on TigerWorking on my new mac mini I finally managed to get sepy run for OSX (actually i made an installer for OSX 10.4).
I have fix the major platform related bugs, there are still some issues (such as mainmenu disappearing sometimes, import/export features), but on my first test it seems quite stable. Download it from sourceforge here: http://sourceforge.net/…&release_id=340616

I’ve also put a new testing Windows version here: http://sourceforge.net/project/…&release_id=340550

Natural Docs

I recently discovered this project (opensource) thanks to a post in SEPY feature requests. Natural Docs is an open-source, extensible, multi-language documentation generator.
It has native support for C#, Perl and ActionScript2 (PHP, Python, etc. has basic support).
It seems a really valid project, the problem (for me) actually is that is doesn’t support javadoc, even if I read on its forum that he’s planning to support it in the future.
Natural Docs requires Perl 5.05 or higher to run. If you’re using Linux or Mac OS X, you should already have it. If you’re using Windows and haven’t installed it yet, you can get ActiveState’s ActivePerl for free.
There are free versions available for many other platforms as well.
