Postbox w. Venkman

gNeandr-3
           Follow-up: mozilla.dev.apps.js-debugger

Try to setup Postbox [1] with Venkman extension.

PB doesn't come with an add-on manager, but there is a hack [2] how to
install Mr.Tech extension. That installed, extension can be loaded. It
requires some changes with the XPI RDF file, but no problem. It works
with other XPI.

Also going thru that procedure for Venkman JS Debugger it is showing up
in the Mr.T extension dialog but no where else. I would expect it with
the PB "Tool" menu as normally. But no entry. So no start.
The extension.ini has an entry for
"{f13b157f-b174-47e7-a34d-4815ddfdfeb8}", ext. dir is added to the
profile dir.

Any further idea what/where to tune??

Add the relevant overlay to the main postbox window by modifying
chrome.manifest. You may need to modify the IDs of the menus/menuitems for that
to work, I have no idea how postbox works.

Re: Postbox w. Venkman -- Any help out there ??

gNeandr-3
Thanks Gijs,

Postbox has very much the same structure as TB but giving some
additional feature which are only announced for TB3 (or with nightlies)
At the moment I have a working installation, some heavy hack and I'm
looking for a better solution.

1. stored the {f13b157f-b174-47e7-a34d-4815ddfdfeb8} dir (from another
installation) to
         
\Profiles\<postbox_profilename>\extensions\{f13b157f-b174-47e7-a34d-4815ddfdfeb8}

2. modifiered the 'chrome.manifest' to add an entry:
        overlay chrome://messenger/content/messenger.xul        
chrome://venkman/content/venkman-overlay.xul      
application={[hidden email]}

3.  because there is no UI point/menu after this "Installation" I had to
modify the  'mailWindowOverlay.xul' to add a menu item under 'Tools' with
            <menuitem id="venkman" label="JS Debugger"
oncommand="start_venkman();"/>
        and so it finds the script:
           <script type="application/x-javascript"
src="chrome://venkman/content/venkman-overlay.js"/>

        Not very "normal", but it works ... for the moment ...

        Maybe I have to check how to add that to the
                <menupopup id="taskPopup"
        with some code which would be activated with startup.

Any further help ??
