Hi,

This is my third farr plugin. This time for gmail  (again modified from gtasks)
It allows you look at your inbox and to send emails in the popup window of FARR.

One of the advantages of a  mail plugin(s) is that you can use it in a popup window
while you are looking at another webpage in you browser.

screenshot of gmail plugin (Windows XP, old version of IE)



how to install
unzip the zipfile in subfolder Plugins

* gmail.zip (84.57 KB - downloaded 159 times.)

there should be four files in the subfolder gmail of Plugins
e.g. c:\Program Files\FARR\Plugins\gmail\gmail.ico

default farr alias for this plugin is gmail
if you want to overrule the alias, please read description for my yahoo and operamail plugins.

enjoy
Wim

normally you use farr for finding programs and files
if you have a google mail account (you can create one for free)
with this plugin you can access your inbox without having to open your browser.

just copy the files to the plugin folders as described.
then you can enter the command gmail

you'll see your (web)gmail inbox (sometimes you see the gmail log in webpage first)
now you can read, search, create, and delete messages.

do you need more info

I tried this out yesterday myself, and couldn't get it to work either:

Here's the plugin manager, gmail plugin is selected and advanced options opened.



Possibly relevant:
1) should there be advanced options?
2) the tickbox beside the plugin is unticked when I open the manager. I ticked it - but it was unticked again next time I opened the manager.
3) does it not somehow need to get my gmail details?

I tried relaoding plugins and restarting FARR with no change.

1) there are no advanced options
2) that should not happen, maybe because of the override string (conflict with yahoomail)
     the override string yhm should not be there, please clear that field
3) the webbrowser will ask for your details (in the farr window)

this change (removing yhm) isnt saved either - maybe it's a FARR (Plugins Manager) problem?


EDIT/ FARR version is 2.200.01

tomos,
somehow the same problem occurs now on my computer with the latest farr.

I prepared (earlier) some alternative files which use fsubscript see posts on Farr forum.
    http://www.donationcoder.com/forum/index.php?topic=15686.0
you need to install fsubscript in the plugin folder first, it comes with several aliasses which you can enable/disable using fssc command
clear the old gmail folder and copy the following files from the zipfile  * gmail fsubscript.zip (1.86 KB - downloaded 114 times.) to the gmail folder
fsubscript.js
gmail.ico

hi wjamoe, no joy yet...

you need to install fsubscript in the plugin folder first

I tried installing FScript2 (seems to be the most recent), and got this message:
---------------------------
Impossible to create in Plugins/FScript2/proxy.
---------------------------

Maybe it needs to be not in the default programme folder in Win7?
Again I'm veering away from the gmail plugin -
if you think this needs to be followed up in another thread, let me know (thanks for your help! thumbs up)

Yay, it's working cheesy Thmbsup thanks!

Sorry about that FScript2 business - the info about FSubScript on the forum is very confusing.

In the end I got it from CZB here:
http://www.donationcoder....m/index.php?topic=17153.0

I discovered there is a more recent Fscript.dll so I replaced that in the FSubScript folder with this one:
http://e.craft.free.fr/farr/FScript/1.20/
i.e. the latest version from this page:
http://e.craft.free.fr/farr/FScript

great! cheesy Thanks for your perseverance.

I'll update the zip file (fscript.dll) of the first post and put the fsubscript version also there.

I've updated the gmail.zip file in the first post
