the default command is yhm you have to login into the yahoo site as usual. Only Once if you allow IE to remember your username and password.
How to install: Create subfolder yahoomail in folder Plugins of FARR main folder e.g. \FARR\plugins\yahoomail\ Put all 4 files from zipfile in that folder (fscript.dll, fscript.cfi, fscript.js, yahoomail.ico) (do not put anything else in this folder!) ---
start FARR, go to options (Ctrl-O)
Program Options >> Settings >> Plugins and Update
press button [ Click to Examine and configure Plugins..]
press [ Find and Reload all Plugins ]
<you can overrule the command yhm by another (available) alias>
I use Opera as my main browser, but I also need Firefox and Chrome. They all have their strong and week points.
I make, for example, a Google search using "g query" syntax.
Here comes my question: how can I make my web search in the current opened browser and not in the default one? And if I have all 3 (or only 2) browsers opened, could I specify a preferred order of them?
Maybe this could be doable already, but I have no idea how. It is annoying to work in Firefox and hitting "g whatever" makes me wait until Opera launches etc...
Note: the answer was offered by lanux128 in the form of Farr_Browser_Launcher version 1 and version 2.
Description FarrWebMetaSearch is a generic web retrieval FARR plugin that show results in list mode. It is therefore targeted at web sites delivering list-like results. Results are selected using regular expressions. FarrWebMetaSearch searches live as you type!
Download & Install Download the FarrWebMetaSearch plugin from here: http://farrplugins.o...arrWebMetaSearch.zip then unzip it into the FARR plugins directory (usually C:\Program Files\FindAndRunRobot\Plugins) and restart FARR.
Heya. I wrote a little (literally) FARR plugin for Voidtools' Everything content search engine, since the other one was somewhat sluggish and large. This one, on the other hand, seems to be quite snappy and small (less than 16 KiB! ), hence the name.
However, it doesn't come with a built-in settings dialog (oh no!), so if you want to change the only currently available setting, the scoring mode, you'll have to hand-edit an .ini file. I'm sure you'll cope. Also, this does not require the es.exe shell; just a running Everything instance.
Any comments, bug reports and suggestions are welcome, however I may be off on vacation for a week or so.
Description This plugin allows querying the Windows Search index using FARR. The full power of Windows Search's advanced query syntax is supported. And thanks to hamradio Outlook user will get nice icons when searching for their Outlook emails, contacts, calendar items, tasks and notes!
System requirements Windows XP SP2 or Windows Vista and Window Search 3 or newer.
Typing /a at the end of a query will switch to FARR's extended results list mode.
Credits Thanks to Carroll (hamradio on donationcoder.com forums) for designing the icons!
pretty damn amazing.. just a note for people who don't understand what this means: Windows Search *indexes* the *contents* of files. so you can now type ws KEYWORDS and get instant live file searching of the CONTENTS of files.
So I just discovered the Gmail Tasks app and have fallen in love. I know, I know, there's the Remember The Milk plugin, which is fantastic, but I wanted something simpler, and Gmail Tasks is perfect.
Initially, I set up an alias to send me there, but I hated having to press "Enter" to select the result that launched the htmlview, so I poked around, discovered the FScript plugin, and made a very simple plugin. Enjoy!
The FARR Remember The Milk Plugin (FarrMilk) allows you to access your Remember the Milk (RTM) tasks and lists using Find and Run Robot (FARR). A lot of what you can do via the RTM web interface you can do with FarrMilk.
Check out these two video demos (of preliminary versions) to get an idea of what FarrMilk is: Demo 1, Demo 2
What you can do with FarrMilk:
View your tasks
Filter your tasks by task name, by list, by tag, by priority and by due date
Sort your tasks by task name, by priority, by due date, by date added, by date completed and by URL
Add new tasks
Complete / Uncomplete tasks
Move tasks from one list to another
Change a task's properties, including its name, priority, due date, recurrence, time estimate, tags, location and URL
Add, edit and delete task notes
View your lists
Add new lists
Archive / Unarchive lists
View your tags
View tasks of your smart lists (with limitations! read About Smart Lists further down)
I'm please to show my new little baby project. FFTab. FFTab connect FARR to Firefox to list the tabs and then switch them.
I'm sure a lot of thing can be done with mozrepl since everything that is doable for firefox with extension can be done through repl. I hope we have some mozilla hackers here because I would love to see plugins interacting with Firefox. Creating tabs, switching, create shortcuts, extract html fragments etc... many things should be doable.
Bakko - Transformations of FARR Text Field Content
Introduction ------------ The main point of this plugin is to be able to customize how files with particular file extensions are opened. To achieve this end, the user is expected to provide a configuration which specifies associations between file extensions and corresponding methods of opening files with those extensions.
The plugin provides additional functionality including support for: * multiple possible methods of opening files via context menu items * default context menu items (i.e. always appear in context menu) * overriding of method to open files via an appropriate keyword
This is a plugin for FARR that utilizes the Comparer tool written by fenixproductions for the recent NANY 2009 event.
Essentially it adds a right-click context menu item to any result that will give you info on the file; by installing additional wdx total commander plugins you can get even more info for specific kinds of files. See the link above for more info on that.
You can also use +cmpc in your search string to trigger the info display without using the right click.
mouser's excellent Screenshot Captor does pretty much everything you need for screenshot capturing (and more) but isn't exactly a tiny lightweight app. But it's baby brother MiniCap is a command line based screenshot capture app. This makes it ideal for the quick screenshot capturing tasks, and also ideal for FARR aliases!
I've put together a package that includes some aliases as well as a fresh build of MiniCap itself. These aliases should cover a range of screenshot options but adding or editing should be easy enough.
Quote from: mouser
to install this you would put the minicap directory in your FindAndRunRobot\AliasGroups\Installed directory. That alias subdirectory is marked as Read-only from within FARR so that it can be easily updated.
To use, type 'mcap' which will present you with the following commands
Captures current screen
Last active window capture
Captures the last active window (i.e. active before launching FARR )
Select region capture
Interactive capture of region (traditional style mode -- locked to current screen of multimonitor)
Interactive capture of object (red box mode)
Red box region capture
Interactive capture of region (red box mode)
Capture to clipboard
Copy the interactively selected image to clipboard
Border shadow capture
Add a nice border and shadow to interactively selected image
DC Review capture
Autosaves to "%MYDOCUMENTS%\reviews\$appname$\$windowtitle$_$uniquenum$.png" I found this was quite helpful when working on a minireview
Capture entire desktop workspace (all multimonitors if more than one exists)
Delayed screen capture (4 secs)
Wait 4 seconds before engaging capture of current screen
Crash msg capture
I'm using a couple of beta apps and if they crash I can save the crash message to "%MYDOCUMENTS%\crashinfo\crash_$windowtitle$_$datetime$.png"
Help with MiniCap
Launches the MiniCap helpfile
Thanks goes to mouser for both a lot of help and suggestions while making the aliases and for updating MiniCap and adding several new features. Looking at several other aliases was also very helpful, so if you've released a pack of aliases I've probably looked at it in awe
I am a long timefarr user and a fairly recent DC Member. This is my first post.
Before I start I tried searching for the answer and I am by no means a programmer but I am trying to understand how use farr to create search aliases that work like quick searches in firefox. Basically I am trying to figure out how to translate these kinds of quick searches to Farr from firefox
I think that I want to replace the %s search criteria with $$1 in Farr. What I can't figure out with farr is how to get it to include the rest of the search string which is not varible when I use this kind of query.
I guess I don't understand enough about FARR and the syntax it uses to get this to work. I hope I am making some sense. Any help is appreciated. I really want to learn and understand how to do these more complex searches in FARR.
this is a very simple alias that updates to your Twitter page. i believe that a more robust plugin is in the works but until it is ready, this alias sort of plugs the gap. do try this out.
also, i'm afraid that there are some manual steps needed to get this alias working, where you have to add in your username and password to get it working. (see pic). credit goes to DC member srikat whose code saved me a lot of time. also to the cURL team and Dirceu Veiga of Fasticon.com (for the Twitter icon, of course).
Usage setup: download the zipped file. extract the contents into Farr's sub-folder "\AliasGroups\MyCustom'. launch Farr then go to the 'Options' > 'Aliases/Groups'. choose the twitter alias from the drop-box on the right. double-click on it to edit and make the changes mentioned above. close everything until you reach Farr's main window. type 'tw' <insert whatever> and press enter.
I use Outlook tasks quite a lot, for serious tasks, to-do lists, but also quick reminders. Today I stumbled across "QuickOutlookTask", a small command-line utility that allows you to quickly add an Outlook task. You simply type something like "do new outlook task" (command line, or Windows Run) and this creates a new Outlook task with subject "new outlook task". Outlook needn't even be running. See http://www.megalab.i...articoli.php?id=1288.
Well, a couple of days ago I discovered FARR and quickly fell in love with it (kudos, mouser ) and I wanted to have this through FARR. So I wrapped this functionality in a FARR alias, and this is my attempt to pass it on to you.
GooglePlus This plugin allows you to choose from five different Google search types including Web, Local, Video, Images, and Books and will display search results in real time based on your search criteria. You can also choose to display extended information specific to each search type for each result.
Usage gp - This will present you with the 5 different search types (Web, Local, Video, Images, Books) as shown above. Select one of the search types by typing in its name to filter the search or using the arrow keys to select and then press tab to activate that search. Tip: Typing "gp" followed by two spaces will recall the last search you executed since launching FARR.
gpw - Alias for web search. The same as typing gp +web gpl - Alias for local search. The same as typing gp +local gpv - Alias for video search. The same as typing gp +video gpi - Alias for image search. The same as typing gp +images gpb - Alias for book search. The same as typing gp +book gph - Alias for GooglePlus search history. This will show you a list of all your previous searches since launching FARR.
Nxqd3051990: I know a lot about translator plugins. I really want one like defnir , but with Vie-English translator smiley Can you guys make me one :p Thanks so much ^^ http://www.tratu.baamboo.com/ << This site :p ( I have no idea about coding yet
Here you go.. It is very simple so if it does not fit your needs (I do not speak Vietnamese) just open fscript.js and modify it. To make it even easier for you, you can use firebug for firefox
BTW: invoke by "bt" => can be changed in fscript.js as well
Description The FARR MostRecentlyUsed plugin shows the contents of the 'My Recent Documents' folder or a list of most recently used files of applications storing their most recently used files in the registry.
Usage Typing mru in FARR will give you a list of your most recently used files.
Use the following modifier keywords to change the search: +byname : Force sorting by name +bydate : Force sorting by date last modified +.[ext] : Filter results by file extension [ext]. More than one can be used, e.g. +.h +.cpp
To show a list of most recently used files for selected applications, use the following modifers: +msvc8 : Show most recently used MS Visual Studio 2005 files +msvc9 : Show most recently used MS Visual Studio 2008 files +office : Show most recently used Microsoft Office 2007 files +wmp : Show most recently used Windows Media Player files +foxit : Show most recently used Foxit Reader files (You configure your own in the config file)
Description The FARR MultiMonitor plugin extends FARR to work better with multiple monitors. FARR's main window currently always shows up on the monitor you moved it to. With the FARR MultiMonitor plugin enabled, FARR's main window will show up on the monitor that contains the currently active window (usually the window of the application you're working in, and also where you're currently looking at).
Additionally, the FARR MultiMonitor plugin has the option to center FARR's main window on the screen.
Warning This plugin is experimental. To provide its functionality, it uses ways other than the regular FARR plugin API. What this means is that there's no guarantee this plugin will work with future versions of FARR. It does seem to work now though. Note that I did not do much testing. It's working fine on my Windows XP computer with two monitors attached. I did not test it with more than two monitors, nor with only one monitor.
Options Note that the plugin offers a couple of options which can be set in the FARR advanced plugin options dialog. There's a brief description of these options in the readme file. Also note that the center option is off by default (because it could be quite annoying without the threshold level set to something sensible).
1) See your upcoming events up and directly go to them. Defauly keyword: gcal 2) Use the QuickAdd feature of Google Calendar to quickly add events. Before actually creating an event, you are given a preview of the date. Defauly keyword: gcal add
I have been working with a command-line program for which i've created an alias to input different parameters but i would like to capture the output as well and show it in Farr's memo. is it possible within the current alias setup?
I am trying to program a mouse center center button (wheel) to open FARR. Can you tell me the instruction? pointing to .exe starts a new instance. in the keystroke mode, it only accepts modifier (alt, cntrl, etc) & a standard key.
This plugin lets you easily access your environment variables. For example, Firefox keeps all its settings in your application data folder (%appdata%). In explorer you could simply write %appdata% to access it, however, in FARR it isn't possible. Until now.
Install the plugin and press % to see the list of your environment variables, select one to automatically expand it on the search path or simply continue writing. Once you add the \ it would automatically expand. E.g, writing %appdata%\ would automatically become C:\Documents and Settings\Vitaly\Application Data\.
Since it is quite a complex plug-in bugs are very expected. Please post on the thread if you have any trouble. I'll be also glad to hear of your general experience with the plug-in.

This has to be one of the most extensive plugins developed for FARR, and it makes use of a ton of different techniques. The author (vitalyb) also made his plugin SDK available which let's people write plugins in C# (or any .net language). Really great.
FARR (Find and Run Robot) v2 download for those who don't have it already: here.
I told you guys I was working on something fun you might enjoy.
See the website for details, but basically GetIt is a simple interface to a variety of Windows-based application-getters like Win-Get and AppSnap.
Note that this is not a plugin. It is useful to lots of people, not just FARR users (although I made it with you guys in mind). What you see above is an alias (perhaps the first program to install an alias into your Installed Aliases folder).
I made a delicious plugin for demonstration : decompress delicious.rar to farr/plugins then type dlc/any_tag in farr to try it.
The principle of fscript.dll is the following : Put the dll in a folder next to a file named fscript.js. FARR will call you on onSearchBegin and on onRegexSearchMatch. You can call FARR.emitResult to publish results. This is mouser style documented... just get the source
I hope to see a lot of little baby script plugins.
