Tinderbox Status Microsummary

The point at which I regressed browser startup time in the Firefox 2 Alpha 2 was about the same point at which I started keeping a very keen eye on Tinderbox. Thus, a Tinderbox status Microsummary! Microsummaries are a hot new feature in Firefox 2 – basically a bookmark with a label that periodically updates. This Tinderbox Microsummary will show “OK” or “{#} Burning ({hostnames})” for the tree that you bookmark. Support for orange trees is not there yet.

You can install it here.

Also, here’s a snippet of XSL for allowing your generators to display themselves, as they traipse about the internets.

    Your generator has localhost in the url, so it doesn’t install.

    This works though,
    javascript:addGenerator(‘http://dietrich.ganx4.com/mozilla/tinderbox-microsummary.xml’)

    Also, tree names like Mozilla1.8 get clipped to Mozilla1

    Thanks for catching that; it’s fixed now.

    I should have known it was a bad idea to send this out while drinking Caol Ila* with those damn Canadians!

    Er, to clarify: The localhost part is fixed.

    It’s a bit more work to get the full tree names pulled out properly. It’s probably a job for after Fx A3 goes out the doorπŸ™‚

    It might be worth doing two things:

    1) Landing this in the tree in the tools/ directory
    2) Putting the link to add it on tinderbox.

    Increases discoverability, and leverages this whole open-source project thing we have going. πŸ˜‰

    Sweet, thanks for this! It’s also be nice to see whether the tree was open or closed…
