I ever liked this addon, it saves me some time and detects some libs (or sometimes detects libs) when Wappalyzer doesn't. But now I'm facing an annoying bug: When customizing my toolbars, I accidentally moved this addon's pseudo-button from addon (status) bar to the main toolbar next to the address field. And now I cannot move it from there - any other button but it is movable. I don't need it there, I wish it back to status bar! Uninstalling and re-installing the addon doesn't solve the problem: the button re-appears at the same place and is still unmovable :(
How to update.
1. Save link as.
2. Open the .xpi with winrar,7zip, or whatever you use.
3. Open the install.rdf no need to extract it since it can be opened with notepad.
4.At line 17 which reads 3.6.*
Change the 3.6.* to whatever you're using no need for the second . or *. Example 20.0
The * can be used though it's for wildcards. I usually put 20.0*
Just updated the actual plugin, hopefully gets reviewed asap. Sorry for the trouble!
when new version
an updated version (compatible with FX5) is available on the project page: http://code.google.com/p/librarydetector/issues/detail?id=1
Very useful extension. It's such a pitty that FF4 is not supported.
This is a good extension, but if is possible I would like you to implement new features.
Follow a link as an example of what I would like: http://www.nqbao.com/chrome-sniffer
I use FF4 when is it going to support it?
its like wappalizer
nice addon, i just missing it show up "jquery tools" !
is "jquery tools" a libs. YES look at http://marcgrabanski.com/articles/jquery-tools-vs-jquery-ui
Works pretty well now
A little buggy at first but the update seems to have solved a lot of issues. The program does exactly what it says, so if you need something like then I recommend it to you.
I have updated this to work with Firefox 3.6.*. You can download the update here:
Make sure you uninstall any old versions first, then use Firefox to navigate to where you saved the file. It should install with no issues.
I decided to update this to work up to Firefox 3.6.*. You can download it here:
First make sure you uninstall any old versions. Then use Firefox to navigate to the directory where you downloaded the update to. You should then be able to click the file and it will install.
Make that 3.6.3. Any news on a release date?
i love this add-on! i can't wait to have it for 3.6.2!
PLEASE! I need this for FF 3.6.2
Great tool - not working for 3.6.2
How can I make this work with FF 3.6.2?
This addon actually works great, no double post problem reported.
Maybe it conflicts with another addon.
Very useful for working out what can be done (easily) with each of the libraries and getting inspiration.
It would be nice if it could also open a window/sidebar that showed the individual library calls used on the page, and if possible, highlight the parts on the page that are modified by the call.
Great plugin! Amazing what weired combinations of library are out in the wild ;) Cannot confirm the double-post behaviour posted below.
If the commenter below is correct, this review would be post twice (since the add-on is currently installed), 5 stars for the doubt as it works fine otherwise.
This seemed like a nifty idea, so I installed this plugin. Later, I noticed a website I am working on was behaving strangely w/ postdata. Data appeared to be posted twice.
Traced the problem back to this plugin -- it loads every page twice, even if it's a POST request.
This seems like bad design, I do not want my forms re-submitted. Hopefully it at least doesn't do this on SSL sites, otherwise ppl will be doing a double-submit & possibly charging credit cards twice.
I've uninstalled this plugin since, it's a cool idea, I like to know what libraries are used at a glance, but there needs to be an option to disable the plugin for postdata.
Maybe a simple 'unloaded' icon can appear on POST sites, which requires a click/confirm before loading the list of plugins & re-submitting the form. Even the browser has built in protections requiring you to confirm before resubmitting POSTs, it's just not a good idea.
I tried to find out if that's really the case, but couldn't reproduce it. In fact, I don't even know how that should happen, because the plugin's source code is incredibly simple and not modifying the actual loaded page at all.
It's completely passive, just listens to the load and tabchange events, and then checks the window object if some library has been found.
My new favorite Firefox extension. A+
