Non funziona Rated 1 out of 5 stars

ScrapBook MAF Creator non funziona.
Quando provo a convertire un prodotto di ScaprBookPlus in Maff, ottengo questa segnalazione:

Scrapbook MAF Creator has experienced an error:NS_ERROR_FILE_NOT_FOUND.
Error message:
Component returned failure code: 0x80520012 (NS_ERROR_FILE_NOT_FOUND) [nsIZipWriter.open]
Click OK to continue.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.1.3). 

Response

Thanks for reporting but please report bugs at the support site, not here. I don't read Italian but I think you're saying that it failed when creating a MAFF from a web page. I can't replicate it. I used these versions for testing without problem and I just checked again and had no problem. nsiZipWriter is a core library used by the extension, not part of the extension. If you had provided specific details of the site you were compressing I could try to see if that site causes issues but without detail there's nothing more I can do. If you'd like to provide a full report at the support site, in English, I'll be happy to look further.

Thanks.

I couldn't get it to work, same problem as several of the other recent reviews.
Firefox version 3.6.17
Scrapbook v1.4.7
Scrapbook MAF creator v1.1.1
Scrapbook MAF creator: ERROR
Please upgrade to Scrapbook 1.0.6 or later
If I can find an older version of scrapbook closer to 1.0.6 I might try that but it's not working with scrapbook 1.4.7.
Thanks

Problems with encoding other than ISO-8859-1 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Please remove the line, otherwise there are problems with encoding other than ISO-8859-1, without this line it works:
\ScrapBook MAF Creator 1.0.3\chrome\sbmaf\content\sbmaf.js
Line 150: txtContent += " <MAF:charset RDF:resource=\"ISO-8859-1\"/>\n";

v1.0.3

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.3). 

Fixed, hopefully.

Thanks for reporting this. I've now changed the character type to UTF-8, as suggested. Please let me know if you still have issues.

Thanks.

I dig through everywhere in my Firefox and to tell you the truth, I completely don't understand why you make so perfect effort to hide it. All I found is just a option dialog. Alright. I give up.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.3). 

Hmmm

That would be the options dialogue with the button labelled 'Help" on it, would it? Did you use it? It doesn't sound like it. You can access the help from there, or by going to the support site either directly or via the About dialogue. I can't make it any easier than that. Secondly, you must realise that this is a plug-in for the Scrapbook extensions, so it will be accessible within Scrapbook.

I agrre with FM33, the character encoding bug is a deal breaker. :-( Messed up some of my precious archived pages.

I found this extension useful and have a temporary solution for the encoding issue. I've made a fixed version and post my thoughts and link to it in the developer's forum, but still there is no answer to my post. You can find it here: http://cryogen.66ghz.com/index.php/supportforum/6-scrapbook-maf-creator/8-encoding-problem

Fixed, hopefully.

Thanks for reporting this. I've now changed the character type to UTF-8, as suggested. Please let me know if you still have issues. I've also added your localisation, for which many thanks.

Could be useful if there were not a character encoding bug.

Version 1.0.3 has definitely improved, resolving the two critical problems that were present in the previous version. As stated in the documentation (which, by the way, is clear and explicative) this add-on still does not create fully compliant MAFF files, and opening the generated files might fail in some cases, but overall it does the job it was designed for.

As the originator of the idea of having this addon, i feel that it is my duty to make a comment. While i have not tested this as thoroughly as i should have (although i have used it and not had any issues).

I think that the first reviewer is correct, there is room for improvements, and I look forward to seeing such in the future, and I thank the author of this extension for paying attention to my original statement.

To the author, thank you for your effort! keep up the good work!

Interesting idea, with room for improvement Rated 2 out of 5 stars

I found this new experimental extension a few days after it was published, and I find that the ability to create MAFF files from sites saved by ScrapBook is a really interesting idea. I tried to contact the author directly on the support forum a few weeks ago, but registration there didn't work, thus I'll write a detailed review here instead.

I tried out version 1.0.2, on Windows. Under many aspects, I think there is still room for improvement. The most severe problem was that the browser stopped responding when I tried to save a page, because the archive was created in the same folder of its source files, and the extension tried to recursively compress the archive into itself, in an endless loop. I solved this by configuring the output path.

Another problem is that no overwrite warning is issued if I try to save two pages with the same name, causing the loss of the previously saved page. Actually, I think this action would be better implemented using a save dialog, but of course I say this without knowing what is the author's overall idea for this extension's user interface design.

Except for these two problems, the Creator works smoothly almost all the time.
There are only some minor compatibility issues with the MAFF format: the ZIP is
missing the "directory entries", and saving some pages (for example, pages that
have double quotes in their title) results in an invalid archive being created.

Regarding this aspect, I have a message for the author: maybe you don't know that, while the Mozilla Archive Format extension is available under the GPL only, most of its sources are licensed under the same MPL/GPL/LGPL tri-license you chose for your code. It's probably more convenient to reuse the MAF code for creating the archives, rather than rewriting it and coping with the potential differences in the resulting files. I'm available if you need any help with this: you can either copy the original files to your package or use them through an API. You may also consider contributing the feature to the MAF extension itself, but this would require much more work as the MAF code base has high quality standards, and maybe it's not your intention to be bounded by another extension's release schedule.

A last note: MAF is the name of the extension, while MAFF (Mozilla Archive Format File) is the name of the file format (see also http://maf.mozdev.org/maff-file-format.html). Thus the proper name for your extension should be "ScrapBook MAFF Creator" ;-)

I'm looking forward to seeing the new versions of this interesting extension :-) I'll update the rating periodically if new versions are published!

I prefer UNMHT Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Nice but you can do the same job using UNMHT plug-in.
The only difference is that the result is *.mht (IE8 html save page format) instead *.maf.
On ScrapBook saved site rightclick to select "Save like mht".
An ipotetic UNMAF plug-in to save html page in maf format is more interesting for me.
