Arch FireFox Searchbar Addon's

Well, I decided to create these because Mr Green braught the topic up on Off-Topic. Since these things are so easy to make I made one for each of the Arch sites, That Mr Green pointed out that I should make. They follow:

Archlinux.org's search for pakages,
Archlinux forum search,
ArchWiki search,
AUR Database search.

These addon's will simply add the search feature to FireFox's search bar. Have fun: http://69.170.183.52:8080/sbar/

If you find any bugs in these please let me know smile. These  aren't yet complete, I still need to add the update feature to them. but feel free to test them tongue

Re: Arch FireFox Searchbar Addon's

I tried the one for the packages and the one for AUR. They might be very useful. big_smile
A comment though would be to improve the icon.

Re: Arch FireFox Searchbar Addon's

About the icons, I've figured out how these search addons worked so I changed the icons myself. I'm using the official ones. If someone wants them, let me know. smile

I was going to use the official, but since they are resized to 16x16 and don't look good anyways, I simply figured I'd may my own small ones. But if you're look decent at 16x16 I'd more than appreciate seeing them, and using them instead of mine.

The aurarch.gif is 32x16. I didn't tried putting it at 16x16 as it might be too crowded but it looks OK in the bar.

Re: Arch FireFox Searchbar Addon's

seems like not many know this, so...
opera has this feature, and i discovered only recently that firefox had it too! its possible to create a "search engine" in firefox from just about any search field. just right-click the search field->add keyword for this search. then you can do inline searching (in the address bar) using the keyword you specified. great for those who dont want to lift their hands from the keyboard. smile

Indeed, but that's not the point in this plugins, they're made to strickly search Arch specific sites universaly tongue.

Re: Arch FireFox Searchbar Addon's

hmm, i dont understand what you mean by universally. with the method i described you can also create arch-specific searches. but the difference is they will not be added to the search box. so the two ways can be sort of... complementary..
