Status Update 3 of Reader Mode for desktop Firefox
24 September, 2012 § 4 Comments
This week’s status update is a guest post written by Michael Anderson, one of the students working on the project.
This week the team worked on diving into the source code and actually progressing through the bugs. For now the team worked together in order to place a button on the toolbar and make it pop up a window.
The team also created and presented the project proposal to their class which detailed the specs for the project as well as included screen mockups for the implementation.
Looking forward to next week the team is going to change the look and feel of the window that pops up when the reader button is clicked and fill it with the article content.
Notes from our meeting:
- Start with navigation approach first, then focus on light-box once that is implemented.
- Either put completely unchanged mode into common area or copy the code into the desktop and adapt it (Separate copies)
- Move Readability.js to a common area (toolkit/components)
- Different parts of firefox: browser, widgets, tabs, mobile, toolkit.
- Get the patch up for our code in the bug for the toolbar button
- Submit more bugs for the different parts of our code
