pinterest, owncloud, pocket, tweet, etc social plugins

Postby fox » 27 Mar 2013, 15:17

Now that button plugin API has stabilized, I feel that it would be better to split several sharing plugins from trunk to keep things more manageable. Not everyone needs those, and it would be easier for people to download them on a need to use basis.

The plugins in question are:

    Share to Pocket/ReadItLater
    Tweet
    Pinterest
    OwnCloud
    Identica
    Google+
    Flattr.


They are now available from a separate contrib repository at Github:

Version 1.7.9 and newer: https://github.com/gothfox/Tiny-Tiny-RSS-Contrib

Version 1.7.8 and older: https://github.com/gothfox/Tiny-Tiny-RS ... tree/1.7.8

How about adding a "Get more plugins at [url=http://tt-rss.org/redmine/projects/tt-rss/wiki/Plugins]the TT-RSS wiki[/url] or [url=http://tt-rss.org/forum/viewforum.php?f=22]the TT-RSS plugin forum[/url]" or something like it somewhere around where it currently says "You will need to reload Tiny Tiny RSS for plugin changes to take effect."?

This is no secret as it is, but when people find the configuration option, they are probably interested in finding more plugins, especially as the list of preinstalled ones is now shortened.

Yeah, this makes sense. Wiki plugin page is outdated and should be removed, but the forum link is a solid add there.

I was thinking it might be useful for a plugin to present (optionally) a "link" attribute, in addition to a version and description. The plugin author could point it at a website or forum thread for information on the plugin, updates, other stuff by them, etc. More direct than just going to the forum here and doing a search.

Not an issue when most of the plugins are written by one person and included in trunk, but now there's quite a collection developing.

In the interest of clarity, I would very much prefer a Wiki page. The forum doesn't allow for proper categorization and there appears to be no naming scheme for threads. Also it's not possible to edit ones posts (at least i can't) so information is quickly going to be buried inside a multi-page thread...
It's already confusing and the number of plugins is only going to increase.

Plugin link attribute is a good idea.

Plugin wiki - I can give people who are interested in maintaining one access to the wiki.

FWIW I've also enabled post editing.

[quote="fox"]FWIW I've also enabled post editing.

This is a side-note to the thread in question, but (unless something has changed very recently, or my blindness is acting up) it seems it is only possible to edit ones posts in the forum a couple of minutes after posting, before the edit link and edit privilege goes away. For keeping a thread up-to-date by continuously updating the first post it is thus not sufficient in its current state.

EDIT: As a proof-of-concept, I can edit this post right now, but not the one I sent earlier in the thread :-) .
