CCK2 Source on GitHub (and a new release)

I had put the original CCK Wizard on code.google.com, but since I did the development of the CCK2 on my private SVN, I had never gone through the trouble of making the source available. It is technically open source, but I wasn’t doing enough to allow other people to contribute to the code. That changes today.

The CCK2 source is now available on GitHub under the MPL.

Nothing else about how I manage the CCK2 will change – I will still be using Freshdesk for support requests and I will still have premium support subscriptions. I will be using GitHub issues only for actual bugs in the CCK2.

When I do new releases of the CCK2, you’ll be able to get information about those releases on the releases page.

And speaking of new releases, I’ve just updated the CCK2 to fix a bug related to adding bookmarks with international characters. You can download it here.

  1. Hi Mike,

    we used the distribution\bundles folder to install PublicFox, so we were able to lock down about:config. The addons where installed (unpacked form) into browser\extensions.

    With ESR 45 it seem that we must switch to CCK2 – great solution, which didn’t work for us a few years ago when i first tested it (as i remember).

    Until now the addons where only at C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\browser\extensions. This made a new distribution of Firefox with changed addons simple.
    With CCK2 it seems that they get copied after start of firefox to the users profile folder (subfolder extensions).

    What must i consider for the next update e.g. if i want to disable an addon?
    A simple test with removed xpi from C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\cck2\resources\addons, adjusted cck2.cfg and a new start of firefox was unsuccessful – the plugin remained in %appdata%\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\jzsq8jqn.default\extensions and was useable.

    I am not sure if i understand Firefox good enough – but maybe an option to unpack the xpi’s to browser\extensions would be the best? 🙂

    Kind regards
    Michael

    • In your case, I wouldn’t use the CCK2 to install extensions. You can still place the extensions into browser/extensions.

  2. It seems that the plug in is not verified for firefox? After creating a custom cck add on i go to add it to firefox and firefox says that it is not verified. Is there a setting that I am possibly missing?
