So I’ve actually been working on some open source stuff this week.
First, I continue working on my first Firefox extension, Edit Tab Titles. I’ve figured out how to add an item to the context menu that opens when you right-click on a tab. What I can’t figure out is how to identify which tab got right-clicked on. Ideally what I’d like is for users to be able to right-click on any tab and edit that tab’s title. Here’s the extension on GitHub and Mozilla.
Second, I’ve started work on a second extension. Like the first, this one scratches an itch. Every once in a while, I will realize only after navigating away from a page that I actually wanted to keep that page open, and yet I also want to keep the current page open. So I’m writing an extension that will (ideally) let you right-click on the browser’s Back or Forward button and select “Open in new tab” or “Open in new window”. Here‘s the GitHub repository.
One of the reasons I haven’t done much in the way of open source this week is because I’m feeling really artistically inspired. Here‘s a dragon image I’m working on. I saw the latest batch of photos from Unsplash, and for every one, the first thing that entered my mind was how I would insert a dragon into it.
