http://lifehacker.com/sof...lendar-plug+in-300144.php

Is this possible right now? If not, please somebody implement this.

This is already easily possible. Haven't tried it because I don't need it. Just apply the explanations found there http://lifehacker.com/sof...tion-launching-284127.php to farr, but instead create an alias to run the .bat files with curl.exe.

.......

Okay I tried it and will sxplain more :

Let's say we want to append bits of text (notes...) to a todo list once in a while...

1- download all the needed files (curl.exe, the .bat files etc., like it's explained in the link above)

2- extract the curl.exe file in your \windows directory (ONLY curl.exe)

3- create a new directory (maybe in the farr directory ; e.g. C:\Program Files\FindAndRunRobot\Personnal Utilities where you want to extract the .dat files you've downloaded (they're zipped). The only one we need for my example is the "add.bat" one

4- Modify the first line of the add.bat file according to where you want to have your little todo.txt file. (change only the path) (e.g. : here’s mine echo %*>>E:\doct\todo.txt . What’s BLUE is what you need to modify)

5- Optional, I think : create you “todo.txt” file where you’ve decided it should be. according to the edited path in the add.bat file.

6- You can either :

     a) open farr's options dialog --> “aliases/groups” tab -->Right click ---> choose "Import : paste preformatted alias goru"

     paste this line :
     1000>>>"todo">->C:\Program Files\FindAndRunRobot\Personnal Utilities\add.bat $$1>+>^todo (.*)

     then go straight to #12

OR

     b) Open farr's options dialog --> “aliases/groups” tab, and then...

7- Create a new alias : right click in the alias window —>  "add new entry"

8- Give your alias a short but meaningful name: like "todo" (I’d personnally keep the quotes in there : prevents accidental launching with the name)

9- Create a regex pattern for easier launcing in the "regular expression pattern" field : e.g. : ^todo (.*)

10- in the "Results" field, write : C:\Program Files\FindAndRunRobot\Personnal Utilities\add.bat $$1 (where "FindAndRunRobot\Personnal Utilities\" correponds to the path where you've put the add.bat you've modified.)

11- Click "OK"


12- Close the option window

13- Open farr, write todo, a space, and write a note, press enter.

14- Go check your todo.txt file : your note should be in there.

You can use a similar procedure for all other .bat files included in the zip file.

seems a bit complicated... but , really, it's quite simple.

[edit : added the preformatted alias]

Here's an easy idea:  FarrTimeZones

User types: ftz [KEYWORDS]
and it displays current time of matching areas.

So use could type:
ftz florida
to see current time in florida.
etc.

A nice bonus would be if it let user put their own extra time listing file, so user could add for example time zone differences for their frients.  So i could put in my file something like:
mom +1

then if i typed
ftz mom

i would see the current time for my mom, etc.



ps. this would qualify as a GOE challenge entry.

Another related idea to FarrTimeZones is FarrDaysUntil:

User would create a text file with events and their dates or deadlines, like
My Final Exam, 12/20/07, 5pm
Uncle's Birthday, 2/24
etc.

Then when you type:
fdu [KEYWORDS]

You would see a display of matching events with the TIME LEFT UNTIL THAT EVENT
like fdu example would show:
1. My Final Exam - 30 days and 4 hours (12/20/07, 5pm)

Hmm, FarrTimeZones could be done with an alias, taking advantage of the sites around the net that gives you that information, among other things like the weather and such.

Bonus points if someone can link FarrDaysUntil with Rainlendar cheesy

Another idea: FarrTimer

Basically the idea here would be that you could add and manage timers from farr.

So if you time:

ftimer

you would see list of all current timers set.
(it would be nice to support countdown timers or preset time alarms, or maybe even countup timers?)

then you could type:

ftimer down 4

to add a new countdown timer that triggers in 4 minutes

or

ftimer down 2:30

to add a countdown timer that triggers in 2 hours and 30 minutes

ftimer alarm 2:30pm time to go to dentist

to add an alarm that triggers at 2:30pm and shows the message "time to go to dentist"

you get the idea.

to delete a timer maybe the best way to do it is, when you click on a timer after listing them all with: ftimer
then you get a dialog where you can edit or delete a timer.

bonus options:
1. options to show the countdown on screen (always or only when nearing alarm time)
2. ability to set alarms for specific days, or repeating alarms, etc. (ie every thursday at 5pm, or jan 24, 2008 at 9am)

this has actually been requested several times as a core farr feature, but maybe it would be good to do it as a plugin?
plugin to let farr search recently opened files, e.g.

It would be nice if farr could include firefox tabs in its searches. Humanized's Enso has this feature, and I love it. A wilder idea that I haven't seen anywhere is interfacing with firefox to search across open pages for a given text string. Not sure how that'd be implemented, but it'd sure be awesome.

FARR rocks!

FARR + Point Motivator: Would be nice to have a Point Motivator plugin in FARR. That way I could use FARR to add points. something like "pointm 10 tidied my desk" would add 10 points for tidying my desk...

think this would be much faster than opening Point Motivator and adding points. But I suppose I'll have to wait for this plugin until more people actually use Point Motivator Wink

i actually strongly considered writing point motivator as a farr plugin instead of a standalone tool.

if anyone actually ever uses point motivator i'll make a plugin so you can interact with point motivator data from farr.

Hi, I am just currious. Has anybody started on coding local dictionary search? It would be wonderful if it cooperated with tab files, babylon files and stardict files or at least some of them smiley. I have many dictionaries and have to use stardict now which I do not like... farr plugin would be much better! Thmbsup

as for searching in dictionaries, this comes quite close but a plugin with configurable dictionaries would be nice also..

Here's another potentially useful (??) plugin idea, inspired by Sprankle.

Sprankle[/b][/url] is a handy keyboard activated character map. Find the character you need with leaving the keyboard.

Like I said in a post in this other thread : couldn't Sprankle be linked to farr : type the letters in farr to show all the different related characters, and selecting the character in the farr result window sends it to the clipboard. It should be possible to make a few mollifications to Sprankle to have it play nicely with farr...

What do you think?

here's a simple plugin idea that i think would be really useful: FARR Command Sheller with Display (FCSD).
it's only job is to shell a commandline and capture the output and display it in FARR textmemo mode.

so you might create an alias like:
FCSD C:\Program Files\MyBatchFiles\myfile.bat

and it would run "C:\Program Files\MyBatchFiles\myfile.bat" and capture the output of that and display it in the memo display mode of FARR.

i think this could be quite useful.

I apologize if this has been requested and or done already, but I just had a very simple plugin idea.

Why not a shutdown plugin? Like if I type "shutdown" as-is into FARR, I get no results, but I want to be able to open FARR and type sleep/shutdown/restart (etc) and have it come up with various options. Would this be possible?

There's actuallu the aliases for nircmd -- isn't it a default farr alias? Can't remember. I think I've got mine set to "^cmd (.*)" regex. But if I write, "shutd" Farr will show me the "shutdown" option. "reboo" and farr will show me reboot, etc. "cmd " and farr will show me all the nircmd options

I have grown dependent on FARR and I try to do more and more with it... One of the things which I still have to do manually (clickety click) is to use options in the menus accessed with right-clicking on the icons in the system tray (also known as the notification area).

Hence the idea for a plugin: type in "tray" and you get a list of all programs visible in the tray. Selecting one item would display the tray right-click menu for this application. Alternately, typing e.g. "tray volume" would directly display the right click menu of the volume control application.

I installed it many months ago -- I was only wondering it was a default alias (already included)... I guess not!  smiley

This shouldn't be too hard to do.  The following article describes the method to obtain the systray icons and how to send  left click, double click, or right click to those handles.

This should be a good exercise to anyone who wants to try developing a FARR plugin!!  thumbs up

i should say that while i think its a neat idea im not sure how much real use it would be -- just a heads up for someone who might be tempted to spend a lot of time coding it.  there are more useful plugin ideas that have been suggested, imho.
