SoftPhone app using NPAPI

Post by predellino » 2020-06-07, 08:30

Hello! This is my first post in PaleMoon Forum. I beg pardon if I am using the wrong section.
My company has developed a multipurpose appliance based on RTOS32 offering PABX service, among others.
I recently knew about PM with great pleasure, as it permitted us to revive our ABILISphone web-app based on NPAPI.
I would like to ask if I am allowed to think about possible enhancements of this app and the ways available to obtain them.
For instance, we would like to:
- prepare a package to obtain a one-step installation of PM and its extension (made for FF a few years ago)
- get an option to minimise the PM window, in order to present only the frame containing the soft-phone.
Thank you in advance for your suggestions!
Greetings from Northern Italy. Ciao,
Lino

As I know, it is only allowed to distribute the official installer and binaries and it is not allowed to provide an installer application.

Here is more info about the redist license: https://www.palemoon.org/redist.shtml
Powerline adapters (dLAN) hardly interfere shortwave radio, so stop using them.

Yes, I still use a 64 bit capable Pentium 4 670 processor with Pale Moon.

By default, Pale Moon can't be bundled with other software. Some exceptions do exist for individual distributors, though, which are individually approved/agreed (as also outlined in the already-linked redist license).

For your particular situation:
If you don't need to alter the binaries of Pale Moon (and to me it seems what you want to do can be done with configuration/launch commands) then I see no problem in permitting this exception for your specific purpose of running the SoftPhone application via plugin. You have my permission to use official Pale Moon binaries as-needed for this purpose, including any configuration changes you may need to make for your specific use. I do ask that you mention (with a link) that you are using Pale Moon in your product, if you do so.

Dear Moonchild,
many thanks for permitting what we have in mind. We will write our thanks to PaleMoon in the softphone app. PaleMoon project also deserves a donation.
Could you please kindly suggest to me how we can obtain support, in case our technicians do not manage to reach the wished results?
Ciao, Lino

Lino,

Please note it's "Pale Moon", 2 words, not one :)

Support is provided primarily through this very forum. Any technical issues can be discussed in this board, if you want. Pale Moon is community-supported.
