I'm not sure what the deal is w/ the registry storage locations for PuTTY (i.e. HKEY_CURRENT_USER vs HKEY_USERS and SID) -- perhaps it's just my poor understanding of Windows smiley

If there is interest, I might put together a preliminary release for testing.

@ewemoa, both the locations you mentioned are the same, HKEY_CURRENT_USER is a virtual one which maps to the HKEY_USERS\<SID> with respect to the current user who is accessing the registry, so ideally you should be picking it up from HKEY_CURRENT_USER, which would make the settings user specific and you dont have to worry about the SID.

Also being a Putty User myself even i am interested in testing out the plugin, until now i have been using some aliases for FARR integration with Putty

For those interested in a PuTTY plugin, you can see what has me stalled in this thread.

dinesh_ms, thanks for the registry-related tip -- I think in the most recent code that I worked on (it's been a while), I ended up doing something that seems in line with your tip (but I don't remember at this point).

I would love to see a plugin that connects FARR with the GMarks extension for Firefox.  I use the quick bookmark search feature all the time, but often find myself hitting the FARR hotkey first by accident cheesy.  So I thought that a plugin interfacing FARR with the quick bookmark search in GMarks would be great. I could pull up FARR, type GM[space] and then use it like I would GMarks.  If I was better at coding I would try it myself. Sad

Yes, that would be nice. See this thread for some related discussion

I'd love to see a plugin that searches the Linkman database. It's easy to pop up the Linkman search dialog, but integrating it into FARR would be even easier. Maybe the FarrFox plugin could be updated to also search Linkman?

I'd like to suggest two interrelated ideas for plugins, both relating to the use of FARR to bring currently running windows/applications to the foreground.

1] Using FARR as an alternative to alt-tab to selecte a currently running window/app
With FARR installed on my machine I find that it is much much easier to run a new program than to find one which is already running! Running a new program with FARR takes only milliseconds, but searching the couple of dozen icons in my taskbar for the one I want takes far longer. Cycling through the alt-tab list is even more laborious, because all microsoft office documents receive their own little icon on the alt-tab list, and since I regularly have 30-40 docs open in Word at a given time, it is nearly impossible to find the one I want!
I'd like FARR to first try to match my input to one of the currently running applications or open windows (I suppose it would be best to first try to match the window caption of an open window, and if not, to try to match to a process name among the running processes).
I would further be interested in the option of limiting FARR to match windows of one specific process. For instance, this would allow me to create a hotkey to launch FARR and to use it specifically to locate one of my open Microsoft Word documents.

2] My second request is for FARR to provide the user with a single-stop option to either switch to a given app if it is running, or if not, to run the application.
Often I find that I want to use a given app (say, calc.exe), but I don't know whether I am running the app or not. Searching through alt-tab or the taskbar is laborious, as noted above, so in these cases I usually just run another instance of the given program with FARR. However, this creates clutter on the machine, and not all apps do a good job running multiple instances. Thus, it would be ideal if I could configure FARR such that after selecting an application to run, FARR would first check to see whether the application is already running, and if so, FARR would give me the option (via a single keypress) to decide whether to launch a new one or whether to just bring the current one to the foreground.

I here by request for a Twitter plugin, one that would show the number of characters left as a tweet (message/update) is being typed.

There's a limit of 140 characters per tweet imposed by Twitter.

Additionally if the plugin can provide URL shortening (auto shortening as an option), that would be great!

Here is a thread on Twitter alias to anyone who might want to take this up as it can perhaps be used as a starting point.

it'd be nice if the twitter plugin could also do the following:
• show last few updates of a user.
• follow users via the plugin interface

^ I think this would be very doable (for an experienced coder), since Read It Later has an API

Was/is there a unit converter plugin for FARR or am I imagining things?

If there is not, I suggest one... I suppose it could work similarly to FCalc (which I absolutely love!), i.e. you type in:
convert 5 meters to inches
and you see the result in the results pane.
Unit autocompletion would be nice.

Wait... just had an idea - type in just "convert 5 meters" and 10 most frequently used conversions (from meters, of course) show up automatically!

Edit: Just found this:
http://units.sourceforge.net/

I am not sure how usable it could be for a plugin...

Here's my suggestion for a plugin. I've used the search and cannot find anything like this: a plugin to search the Windows registry.

It could work something like this:
reg <keywords>
reg hkcr <keywords>
reg hklm <keywords>
reg hku <keywords>
reg hkcc <keywords>

ie. either search all of registry, or specified branch (hkey_classes_root, hkey_current_user, hkey_local_machine, hkey_users, hkey_current_config)

It could display keys like FARR currently does folders and values like FARR does files, with the value type if possible (reg_sz, reg_binary, reg_dword, reg_qword, reg_expand_sz, reg_multi_sz).

Selecting a search result would open regedit.exe and jump to the selected key/value. I've used registry searchers in the past that did this, but wouldn't it be cool if you could do this from FARR?  Cool

Thanks for reading.

i have a suggestion.
can a plugin be made to kill processes eg.
kill explorer.exe
or using the title of the window
kill $title$="Notepad"
for the first taskkill /f %exename% can be use but for the second winApi must be used

thankx

I just gave Keybreeze a try and came running back to FARR! Having said that though, it has a nice feature. Typing keyword "note" allows you to create a post-it style desktop note. I know FARR has addnote/viewnote, but this desktop sticky note is pretty cool.
I second that, I am finding I am using keybreeze just for this reason.
I also think that if you could integrate FARR with a simple app (one small .exe) like Diana, which is a very small and simple calendar/with memo feature that would me great.

Never got the hang of it, all those arguments \q \a  etc to write a simple note   just confusing for a dumbass like me.
Also sticky notes is what i really  like, and the one with keybreeze is awesome, with its timers etc.

if one of these stickies programs has a commandline callable interface to add notes, someone could easily make a farr alias to add sticky notes to it.

I was thinking about making a FARR plugin for Stickies for a while but came to the conclusion that there's not enough benefit of having one. If you want notes in FARR I guess hamnotes is as good as it gets. If not, Stickies offers global keyboard shortcuts and much more. Don't know if it has timers though.

Although I haven't used the following:

  http://www.zhornsoftware.co.uk/stickies/

it appears there is an API (Windows Messages) for getting it to do various things:

  http://www.zhornsoftware.co.uk/stickies/api/

There also appear to be various utilities for working with it -- on first glance it looks like there may be some kind of command line interfacing mentioned too:

is there a  password manager plugin?  I use FARR for going to web sites but some require a password and it would be great if FARR could also bring up a window with you passwords in for your favourite sites.
