Where is Source Code???
« on: September 10, 2005, 05:44:24 AM »
Hi,
You mentioned that this is a open source project but for some reason I am not able to find Source code for this extension.

btw I just downloaded this extension, I will be using very first time after I finishe writting this forum. However from what I have read on your site, If it does what it says this extension will be on my No 1 list.

An excelent Job buddy. Nicely put site. Nice Help, and excelent FAQ section. :)

The source code is here, or by anonymous CVS (password is guest):

cvs -d :pserver:[email protected]:/cvs login
cvs -z3 -d :pserver:[email protected]:/cvs co passwordmaker

Extensions are actually just source code.  After you install an extension go into your Firefox folder in My Documents and Settings>Your account name>Application data>Mozilla you will see they are just "jar" files which can be opened with an unpacking utility like winrar (maybe winzip, too).

I'm not sure how Firefox "compiles" them each time you run it, though.

Yes, as Tyrantmizar pointed out, I explained how to view the source code directly on your PC rather than using the CVS interface. But the source code on your PC is a snapshot in time of PasswordMaker. The CVS interface, however, shows the latest code minute-by-minute -- stuff that hasn't even been released yet. It also has the entire website in the /aso folder (aso stands for ASmallOrange, who is passwordmaker.org's current ISP).

Yes, WinZip opens JARs, too.

It doesn't compile. Firefox uses the SpiderMonkey JavaScript engine (written in C/C++) and, as far as I know, SpiderMonkey interprets JS real-time (just like the JS engines in IE and other browsers).
