2,000,000 Downloads of Toolbar Buttons

by Michael

Over the weekend, Toolbar Buttons passed the 2,000,000 download mark on addons.mozilla.org! At one point I though that might happen never the end of this year, but being the featured add-on this month has made downloads go so fast, it has been a great experience to watch.

I am hoping to get the next release out soon, with a whole lot of improvements, just some bugs I am having problems with. I also hope to start releasing some versions of that Toolbar Buttons that are collections of buttons based on particular themes, such as Tabs, or Bookmarks or Developer Tools. I have also been in contact with the maintainers of LXLE Desktop who are interested in making a version of Toolbar Buttons installed by default in their distribution of Linux. So much going on, it is amazing!

Moving Code to GitHub

by Michael

Recently I have begun to move my active projects over to GitHub from svn. The general idea is that it will make it much easier for others to contribute. So far I have created 10 repositories. And here is a summary of the main ones:

Toolbar Buttons
Toolbar Buttons, which is the featured add-on of the month, is my last collection of buttons for Firefox and Thunderbird.
mozbutton_sdk
This is the build system going on sdk/toolkit that I developed to manage Toolbar Buttons. It is now almost decoupled from it and ready for general use.
djangopress
The Django applications that run this site. Its goal is to be for web masters, what Django is for web developers. All the needed parts out of which to build a web site.

If you are interested in the development of any of these projects, please Follow me on GitHub
