Flattr add-on for Firefox

The Flattr add-on for Firefox enables easy discovery and flattring of flattrable pages you visit in your browser.

The add-on asks the Flattr API whether a page is flattrable or not by sending the URL of the page to the thing lookup resource - the results are cached in the browser for a while for increased performance. The add-on respects private browsing and disables checking when that's on. For details regarding the privacy of this add-on refer to the Flattr privacy policy.

How to build

This add-on uses Mozilla's Add-on SDK. Download that and install it accordingly.

When you have installed the Add-on SDK you need to add the dependencies for this add-on. We need the Urlbar Button module and the ShowForPage module so download those and add it to a packages/-folder within this addon - this is the way you add third party modules that an add-on uses.

Once you have added the dependency you can download this add-on itself and run it and build it the way you like. Check the Add-on SDK Getting Started tutorial to find out how that is done.
