I have two new extensions that are unreviewed after quite some time

Unread post by noobsoftware » 2022-06-26, 08:37

Just wondering if this is an oversight or just because the reviewers are to busy?

Two new extensions are:

ColorTabs (similar to color-my-tabs) and Noob Music as an extension.

If you are publishing a new extension, best to create a thread here announcing it, else there are no notifications sent when someone posts an extension for review. I had a quick glance at the submission for color tabs - one thing I can suggest is update em:homepageURL in install.rdf with your extension homepage so that a link to it will appear in the browser's addon manager entry. If you don't have a separate homepage, just create a thread here for support and use that.

I have added the homepageurl tag to both submissions. Both extensions should be ready for review.

For those who don't know Noob Music is also a standalone application i have for macOS available at noob.software but it can also be used as an extension in Pale Moon, Nightlizard or White Star. And ColorTabs is similar to color-my-tabs except it captures gradients used on pages as well as using the favicon.

NoobMusic doesn't seem to work properly on Windows, at least on my end.
  • I tried it with both a sizeable music library and a folder containing a single album. It refuses to play anything (or I might be doing something wrong, either way it's not user-friendly). After it saw all the music files, I tried clicking on the play button and seeking but nothing happens aside from the display changing to the music's file name - null - null. The error console doesn't provide anything useful aside from your extension emitting ready and 0
  • It doesn't seem to be able to read M4A files, only MP3 ones, although the browser supports the format.
  • Missing window controls - the NoobMusic window is not resizable or moveable.
  • EDIT: one more thing - for some reason, it modifies the app menu's text color, probably unintended.

ColorTabs:
  • Works fine for the most part. You might want to consider modifying .tabbrowser-tab directly so that it changes the background of the entire tab and not only the icon-label area.
  • Code cleanup:
    • Remove .DS_STORE, __MACOSX, and other files and folders generated by your environment/operating system.
    • Remove chrome.manifest.flat - seems to be unused.
    • Remove defaults folder - seems to be unused as well. This is only useful if your extension has default preferences.
Regarding the review process: while I do check the Phoebus Panel from time to time, I think it would be better if you would also send us both a private message (this was the case pre-Phoebus). That way, we'd be notified via email as well since I'm more likely to see it that way.

Off-topic:
I should probably update the add-ons page on the developer wiki to reflect this policy OR better yet, work on making Phoebus send email notifications on newly-submitted add-ons.

Thanks for your response, i will test and fix Noob Music on windows, and fix color tabs so it colors the entire tab, as well as removing unnecessary files. But to play a song in Noob music you have to click once (single click) on the leftmost column (which changes to a checkmark when the song is played) because i couldn't figure out how to override the default behavior of editing the field of the column by double clicking. But it of course shouldn't result in a null value.

I will send you both a pm when the fixes are completed.

ColorTabs is now available: https://addons.palemoon.org/addon/colortabs/
:thumbup: This work rather decent in distinguishing tabs on PM with Dark Moon theme applied.
