Burnside Mac OS X Mail Plugin

The Burnside mail plugin adds a character count and twitter handle buttons to a toolbar in Apple Mail

Installation

You can compile the plugin from source or grab a pre-compiled version from our site. Install it into $HOME/Library/Mail/Bundles. You'll need to execute the following two commands in Terminal to allow Mail to load the plugin.

10.8

defaults write ~/Library/Containers/com.apple.mail/Data/Library/Preferences/com.apple.mail.plist EnableBundles -bool true
defaults write ~/Library/Containers/com.apple.mail/Data/Library/Preferences/com.apple.mail.plist BundleCompatibilityVersion 4

10.7 and 10.6

defaults write com.apple.mail EnableBundles -bool true
defaults write com.apple.mail BundleCompatibilityVersion 4

You may need to execute these commands after each OS or Mail update.

The plugin only becomes active if you're replying to a message to a twitter+ email address. This is the default username used in burnside.

Configuration

defaults write com.apple.Mail Burnside.signature.server " —J"

An example of the signature that's appended by the server. The plugin adds the length of this string to the character count.
