ScriptCase Tools

A browser extension to make working with ScriptCase simpler and even more productive.

ScriptCase Tools

Installation

Google Chrome

Quick Installation

Go to Chrome Web Store to install the release version.

Manual Installation (latest/development version)

  1. Download the source code at https://github.com/AndersonMamede/scriptcase-tools
  2. Unzip the file
  3. Navigate to chrome://extensions
  4. Ensure the checkbox labeled Developer mode is enabled
  5. Click "Load unpacked extension..." and select the "source" folder inside the (unzipped) folder

Firefox

Review, signing, and distributing policies are different at Firefox's "webstore" (AMO). All extensions are manually reviewed by employers (or some volunteers), thus making the publishing process extremely slow: everytime an extension is submitted, whether the very first or a new version, it goes to the end of the reviewing queue.

It took 19 days to receive a response for the first publishing attempt:
Does this add-on only work with paid software?
In this case, we need to ask you to switch your add-on to 'unlisted' (=selfhosted) as the add-on requires a payment for it to be useful.
For more information, see:
https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/Add-ons/AMO/Policy/Reviews - Require payment to use core add-on features (upfront or after trial)

That means an extension can't be published (listed) in Firefox's "webstore" if it works together with a paid software, and although the add-on is digitally signed by Firefox's webstore, the file must be hosted by the owner/author. And because ScriptCase Tools is an extension intented to be used with ScriptCase, which is a paid software, it was not accepted as a listed add-on.

That is why there's not an official link in Firefox's webstore for ScriptCase Tools and it must be manually downloaded, which is very simple:

  1. Download the compiled and signed file at https://github.com/AndersonMamede/scriptcase-tools/raw/master/firefox-release/scriptcase_tools-latest.xpi
  2. Drag it into Firefox window
  3. Wait for the confirmation popup and then click on the "Install" button

ScriptCase Support

  • ScriptCase v7
  • ScriptCase v8
  • ScriptCase v9

Other ScriptCase versions might work correctly, but were not tested.

Any problem with ScriptCase Tools in the above Scriptcases environment should be reported as a bug in our issue tracker or as a message to mamede.anderson@gmail.com.

Why was ScriptCase Tools built?

If you often use ScriptCase to develop your applications, you've probably noticed that its development environment lacks some basic functionalities (e.g., no shortcut keys, not restoring last cursor position), while others could be improved (e.g., code editor, main menu sensitivity).

Even though some users have pointed out some of the problems on ScriptCase official forum, those improvements haven't been made yet.

This browser extension was created to fulfill these gaps.

How does it work?

Because ScriptCase doesn't provide a public API, hacking into its JavaScript/HTML/CSS code was the (only) way to go. And because of that, this extension heavily depends on ScriptCase's code and structure (e.g., specifics JavaScript functions, the DOM structure, some elements with specific ID/class name).
