Lots Going On

I’m way behind on updates here, but there’s a lot going on at Revision 1 right now. I’ve got a number of web projects to post updates about, and I’m literally about 5 minutes from uploading a new Safari 5 extension for Read It Later for folks to download.

I really like Safari 5’s extension API. Since it’s built on HTML and JavaScript, I was able to roll up my Read It Later extension in about an hour. Right now it just supports adding the current tab to your list. There’s no tagging or list reviewing right now, but this fits what I need it to do about 99% of the time; I’ve actually got a Fluid instance that I use to display my list. I’m also working on a full-featured Delicious extension for Safari 5 since just adding bookmarks isn’t sufficient for me with that service, but that’ll probably be a few weeks out. I’m trying to work out the best way to group bookmarks by tag using HTML controls and a 30-pixel toolbar space. More consideration is needed.
