Unity Launcher API Addon e10s
Add-on for Unity Launcher API integration regarding download progress and count.
What is Unity Launcher API Addon e10s?
Unity Launcher API Addon e10s is a Firefox add-on that integrates with Unity Launcher API to display download progress and count in the taskbar.
This add-on is basically what Unityfox add-on once did - pass along info about download progress to KDE Plasma 5 and Unity. If you have none of these desktop environments, this add-on is not for you.
It shows overall download progress and active download counts in task bar.
IMPORTANT: Due to security restrictions of WebExtensions platform you need to place 2 files to your home folder. Place these files: https://github.com/kotelnik/firefox-extension-unity-launcher-api-e10s/tree/master/app-side ...to folder: ~/.mozilla/native-messaging-hosts/ ...and edit launcher_api_firefox_stdin.py.json so it contains proper absolute path to the python script, e.g. "/home/YOUR_USERNAME/.mozilla/native-messaging-hosts/launcher_api_firefox_stdin.py"
This add-on no longer requires libunity library to be installed because it calls dbus directly.
The code has around 150 lines (addon + app side combined) so you can quite quickly check what it really does. Interesting source code files:
Unity Launcher API Addon e10s is relatively safe to use as it requires very minimum permissions.
Unity Launcher API Addon e10s has earned a fairly good reputation and likely can be trusted.
