HELP AND ASSISTANCE:
Working some of their programmers to the boneDonation Coder is working some of their programmers to the bone lately with all of the apps that are being developed! Just a month ago they released a dozen or so free programs, and this time around there are 16 new ones. Here are a few of them that really peaked my interest.
Addons for the Find and Run Robot Program
This page collects addons for the Find and Run Robot program that have been posted on our forum over the years. Click a link to go to the forum thread discussing the addon and download.
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.
FScript is based on the Windows Script Control Host which you may need to download if it is not installed :
I just finished FARRAltTab plugin. Basically it lets you switch among windows using FARR and by typing the name of the window you switch to.
Download link (please unpack it to your "FARR\Plugins\FARRAltTab\" directory):
This is a very first release that was built on a very first release of the C# SDK so bugs are expected. Please let me know of any issues.
Here is the link to the C# SDK along with the code of the plugin:
The plugin will be available through dcupdater soon but for now here is the link for people want to play with it:
Let me know if you run into any problems. Since it's the first time I've written a plugin for FARR and the Delphi framework itself is new as well there could be some small issues. Sofar I haven't had any problems with it myself but you never know how people are going to use it
I'm looking into how I can add some useful scoring and other more complex stuff. Right now it just lists the results in the FARR results window. If anyone has an idea on how to best add the scoring.
This alias allows you to do a few things with the active window by typing a command in farr.
