what about british, american, australian english etc? ;)
Actually, there's a serious difference between portuguese and brazilian portuguese, that's why i said i can't do the brazilian one, recently i read a brazilian blog entry and wasn't able to understand much more than our fellow lashiec, which is spanish :)

I agree with you jgpaiva. The Portuguese from Portugal and the one from Brazil are quite different in many parts, but its core is the same. As Brazilian I can assure you that  :P

I will be very happy doing the Brazilian version, but I have no clue about what I should do. If we are talking about the hangman list of words, I can do the translation from the English version.

Please, let me know if I can be useful.

A way to create alias from the sherlock & opensearch search engine plugins of Firefox/IE7 would be fantastic. I have more than hundred search engines there and i often add/remove engines, so it take me too many time to create ffar alias manually.

for firefox you can extract/decode url, names and icons from xml files in "C:\Documents and Settings\[user]\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\[profile]\searchplugins\"

that's a really nice idea cerAmik.. let's see if we can't find a way to make all of those search engines available using some kind of filterable plugin.

Maybe this idea is crazy, not faisable or simply plain stupid, but here it is. For a few days now, i've been using farr to search my mp3 library from time to time, and find it quite convenient. Maybe there would be a way to make farr some kind of mp3 manager. Mouser mentionned the upcoming database option, which could be an improvement for mp3 handling, considering the amount of files. But then i thought, it would be awesome to find a way to store id3 in a database and have farr search it. This way we could use lightweight players (like xmplay) and still have quick access to mp3. No more memory-eating programs like iTunes etc.

Maybe that's an idiotic thought, i dunno...

indexing, which will let farr be able to search through mp3 tag information, is coming, and will be a combination of built-in code for maintaining indices, and plugins to let other programs add meta information.

but it won't be in version 2 coming out this month, it will come later.

How about someone making a simple plugin that just displays a bunch of info about your computer in memo mode (super easy to set this, see calc example).  If you can find open source code on the web for showing uptime, memory, computer info, etc, this would be a really easy plugin to write.

Here's a simple plugin idea:

A plugin which shells another program with commandline arguments, captures it's output, and displays it in the FARR Text Memo display mode.

I'd like to see a plugin that converts various measurement units, such as Celsius -> Fahrenheit, gallon -> liter, for instance.

example: alias 'conv'
Code: [Select]
conv 100 fahrenheit celsiuswould convert 100 fahrenheit to celsius.

Or the crazy Fahrenheit/gallon/inch/etc. people out there could just use proper units :P

TucknDar:
You can already do that. Just do
Code: [Select]
search 100 farenheit in celsius, and press enter :)

(explanation: google can make conversions like that)

yes, jgpaiva, I know, but that requires a browser window to be opened and google to do its magic. I'd like instant results within FARR.

Just wondering, in Firefox and Opera you can set keyword searches. So if I go to Wikipedia and create a search for w. When I type w "whatever I'm looking for" it comes up in my web browser. I realize FARR has this same capability (as I've used it myself for google and I think Wikipedia once). But can we create searches anywhere that has a search engine? How would we add that to FARR?

Also, an idea for a plugin (inspired by the launcher dash video I saw). Google calendar support. Though I'm not sure how it would be implemented. Though if it's possible to create a new event then it should also let you edit reoccurence and add a note to it.

i had a really cool idea for a plugin (and ps there are still a couple of plugin writer cody mugs available for any plugin coders):

The idea is a plugin that will let you easily search your own custom text files in different formats.  Call it "Custom TextData Searcher"

It would work like this:
In the options of the plugin you can configure a list of files.
For each file the user specifies:
  • Filename, for example "mydefinitions.txt"
  • Regex pattern to match each RESULT ENTRY (e.g. line, paragraph, etc.); group matching () is allowed, for example "Item: (.*) = (.*)"
  • Text pattern to show in results list, e.g. $$1 (see this item is from the regex match above).
  • Text pattern to show in text box when a result is selected, e.g. $$2 (again from above).

The plugin will essentially load in the ext file and parse it into entries according to the regex pattern, and then use the result and text patterns for returning results to FARR.

It should also check the file data when triggered so it can auto-reload changed files, so that it is always up to date, even with things like log files.

Seems like it could be quite useful.

that's a very good idea and it would be much useful
and i believe people would create quite interesting stuff

the really cool idea is to use a regex pattern to parse the files  :Thmbsup:

Code: [Select]
Text pattern to show in text box when a result is selected, e.g. $$2 (again from above).or the ability to copy the text pattern to the clipboard
or even better to specify a file which will take care of the result : copytoclipboard.exe $$2

Cheers, Nitrix

Plugin idea:

search inside zip files and launch files inside the zipfiles. Could work like this:

open_zipfile myzip.zip -- would display all files contained in myzip.zip and launch a selected file
open_zipfile myzip.zip fmask -- would execute a "dosearch" on the above view thus shortening the result list

could someone please create a plugin to be able to interact with autohotkey scripts? This way we would open up the autohotkey world  / community here on donationcoder to the farr world.

For example I made a SwitchToTask script that accepts part of a window title, it would be great if it could be enhanced to do livesearch on window titles.
At the moment I'd have to write an autohotkey script that writes out all window titles as text files in a folder periodically which is indexed by farr, lol would be interesting.

+1  :Thmbsup:

i also think it would be EXTREMELY useful to access some FARR informations for writing autohotkey scripts
since it seems that FARR windows are not standard ;)
