this update is mainly for addon center. mostly cosmetic changes and design tweaks.
Here is what is new:
A blurry colorful background will be generated from the thumbnail. It reminds me of osx blur effect, and look gorgeous.
The thumbnail must be uploaded to imgur or other image hosting that allows CORS, any private domain(personal site) won't allow it.
how it looks:
also bee-liever's Peeaches n'Cream skin(blur looks really creamy
phred's on the look out has icy blur effect.
All of these are generated on the go(client side), addon devs don't have to do a single thing.
here is the links to visit these addons:
i will submit few more addon to test this feature out. Also there is a More from X
section at the bottom, which should be working properly.NOTE:
in the next update upload to mediafire
will be allowed, this will allow a central repo, also direct upload will make things easier. I was planning to go with google drive, but decided to go with mediafire because of their easy to use api, storage, options and bandwidth.
I did planned to use onedrive, but their documentation awful, and i can't seem to find sitewide upload example.
let me know if you have any issue with mediafire in general.
You won't need any mediafire account, only logging in to dashboard is enough.
