Cubbi.es Safari Extension

What’s cubbi.es?  They’ve got it all spelled our here at Diasporial.com - but basically it’s a proof of concept/demo for an app that you can use to clip images you find online and they get posted to your diaspora stream. (it’s a bit addictive)

There was an extension for firefox and chrome (can’t find a link) – but nothing for safari users… until now.

Click here to download the extension – un-zip and double-click, or run in safari – this should install it in your safari.  Right click on an image and choose ‘Send to cubbi.es’.

There’s some funkiness between the way the cubbies.js works in an iframe and how a safari extension works (e.g.: no iframe as I understand it) so I did have to hack around a bit by adding my own method to the cubbies object.  I’m looking into ways to accomplish what I need without the hackery.  But we might need to get an additional method added to the cubbies object to support a safari extension.

For those interested, the github location is here.

    Apparently there was already an extension for Safari here: https://github.com/gattonero/cubbies-safari – works well, same functionality as the other browsers (shift-click)

    The extension I built uses a right-click on the image to trigger the image clip.
