MSU CSE Capstone update 1/23

23 January, 2012 § 6 Comments

Today is the beginning of the third week of the in-content preferences project.

Last week the team landed their first patch and began working on fixing their second bug. Work has begun on moving the tabs pane to an in-content page, and the team has started to play with browser-chrome-tests, mixing XHTML and XUL, and putting together a project plan.

The basic plan of the the architecture is to place all the panes within one document and show/hide the panes when navigating the preferences. We can use pushState/popState to allow for forward/backward navigation, as well as perform in-content searches by showing/hiding the relevant sections.

The organization of the preferences will remain the same as it is today in Firefox. Any work on reorganizing the current preferences will be handled in a later phase that is not part of this project.

As a side note, I will be out of town for the next two Mondays but I will try to post updates when possible.
