And I think it’s time not to say how is going my project, instead I prefer to share various things about the development.
Since I’m developing a XULrunner application, maybe some things don’t fit for you, but anyway, some tips:
I’m using MacOS X, and there is a problem while running XULrunner app without installation, since if you try to write in a textbox the text that you entered will be displayed on the system console (Terminal) instead in the selected/focused textbox, so I’m using Firefox 3.5 as it is capable of running standalone applications, so to have an easy shortcut to open the project, I have added this line to my
alias xulSub="/Applications/Firefox.app/Contents/MacOS/firefox -app /Users/willyaranda/mozilla/mmtc/xulsubtitleeditor/application.ini -jsconsole"
and when I need to open the project:
and I’m done!
Application.console.log("foo" + barVariable);
And you will get a message!! Nice, isn’t it?
And just for you, a little screenshot! 😀 (comments welcomed) (the code is HERE)
