Ubiquity commands

Expect a lot of cool stuff coming out of the Mozilla Ubiquity project. Think of it as SIMILE meets Quicksilver right at Firefox's heart.

I've created so far a few commands:

Thanks for the last.fm command. It's just what I was looking for !

By the way, I have done some simple commands but I don't know how to propose them on my webiste with the automatic firefox Add command button ? Can you explain me how to do it or where I can find a tutorial ?
Thanx a lot.

Try the "help" command on Ubiquity. There you'll find a link to https://wiki.mozilla.org/Labs/Ubiquity/Ubiquity_0.1_Author_Tutorial where they explain on section "Sharing it with the world" that you need to place something like "<link rel="commands" href="http://path-to-js" name="Title Goes Here" />" inside the <head> element of your webpage.

Ok, I think I read this tutorial too quickly and I didn't see this part.

Hi,

Thanks for the google scholar command. As a researcher, I'll use it every day.

Only thing is, the URL that is searched is scholar.google.com.BR. I am unfortunately not Brazilian, so I forked the code and fixed the problem. The fork is at http://gist.github.com/21807

Thanks,
ben

Hi again,

I've gone through the upgrade process to make your useful script Ubiquity 0.5 compatible.
