PM4Linux - Windows-style app menu button (screenshots)

Unread postby Antonius32 » Tue, 13 Jan 2015, 14:15

I've finally succeeded in porting Pale Moon's blue app menu button to Pale Moon for Linux, and I think it adds a lot to the browser's aesthetics. Some screenshots:

The results look great, will you be sharing this as an extension or other way?

Sure, I'd be happy to share; I think I'll actually turn this into an extension. Unless Moonchild would be interested in including the code with the browser core..

All right then, here's a preview (I hope that's OK with the forum administrator). Let me know what you think!

Edit: The "Blue Moon Linux" extension is now available on the Pale Moon add-ons site, so I have removed the preview.

Thanks, I'm glad you like it!

By the way, I have made some minor adjustments, so I have attached a new version of the .xpi with my previous post.

Nice work :)
Maybe you should consider submitting it to the addons website?

I actually would be interested, but starting it off as an extension is a good idea :)

I totally agree with Moonchild.

This could be an (optional) extension.

It should NOT be a PM "built-in" feature.
It might conflict with other extensions
which run OK right now in PM.

For ex.,
many of us run the excellent "All-in-One Sidebar" extension.
You don't want to mess it up.

To avoid conflicts w/other PM addons,
you can make an (optional) extension,
and PM users might want to try it -
but DO NOT build it inside PM...

Well, whatever you think is best. As far as I'm concerned, the .xpi that's attached on the previous page is ready for release; the only thing left to do would be to change the version number from "1.0pre3" to "1.0"...

Go right ahead as far as I'm concerned. I haven't had time to look at the code to see exactly what you did and if it'd be easy to adopt into the core without compromising UI compatibility, but I certainly will.

I don't think an optional AppMenu UI choice would mess up anything -- unless you have evidence of a direct conflict? Please let me know the details in that case.

All right, the final version is up (on the first page of this topic).

@Tobin: How would I go about submitting my extension to the Pale Moon add-ons site?

I think this button is a good idea.
But as an optional addon,
not built into the PM core.

Please,
follow my reasoning as a User:

Screenshots (above),
only show the button with only 1 Tab open.

But many people
work with a lot of open Tabs .
I do, frequently!.

If built into the PM core,
this button would take valuable space in a crowded Tab bar.

The text in each open Tab
gets shorter and shorter
the more Tabs you have open = hard to identify which Tab to click
when you have many Tabs open.

This is why I think
this new button in the Tab bar,
should be an optional addon,
not built into the PM core.

Hope this makes sense to you...

If built into the core, it would be a choice, just like on Windows. If you wouldn't want it, you wouldn't have to use it.
