ScribeFire and Safari, Sitting in a Tree

Filed under: Announcements, Releases, Safari, ScribeFire -- Christopher Finke @ 10:51pm

Today, Apple released Safari 5, the first version of their Web browser to really support browser extensions.

Tonight, we’re releasing ScribeFire for Safari. It’s based on the same code as ScribeFire for Chrome, and it uses the same simple interface. (Thank you Apple for building an extension-building environment simple enough that ScribeFire could be ported in under 90 minutes.)

If you’ve installed Safari 5 and enabled extensions, click here to download ScribeFire for Safari, and then open the file on your computer once it has finished downloading.

    Not having any luck… I click it but no blog config happens. I do have a couple other Safari add-ons (Glims, Thurly). Just FYI.

    Thanks for your swift work! Very handy as Safari is far less resource hungry than Chrome for me.

    with best regards,

    That means that ScribeFire will continue to support Safari?

    When I write in Russian, in his blog on livejournal, if you then watch as HTML there are not letters. There, the character codes.

    Could you please enhance the button in a less pixelated way? Thank you!

    I thought this would be an easy extension to use. However, every time I try to load my blog into ScribeFire I get a message that I’ve entered an “incomplete response.” Useless extension….

    I must be a giant duntz. I downloaded and installed the extension but see no obvious place to actually access it and your small screen does not show how you brought up the window. I don’t see a button as you have for Chrome. May I say I do like the ability to open half-page in Firefox with ScribeFire, but I understand if it wasn’t worth developing it in such a way.

    Nevermind. Found it. It is almost too clean. So much so my mind did not catch it because it was so much like every other Safari button, and was not where the extension buttons are on Chrome. It was to the left NOT the right.

    Just installed the Safari extension, and it’s working great so far. However: I’ve been away from ScribeFire for a while so I’ve forgotten most of what it does — didn’t ScribeFire have the option to open in a separate pane in the current browser window? If so, is that function still there somewhere?

    It’s really nice to see ScribeFire being ported into Safari. Good work guys! And Thank You ALL!

    My comment is that “It will be just perfect for me when the ported version can upload local image”.

    I’m a developer myself, and blog quite often, one thing I found most annoying when using other blog clients is that they either don’t preserve the formatting in the copy and past content or don’t have local image upload feature. ScribeFire in FireFox does have the image upload feature, but it doesn’t preserve the formatting when i paste the code in, and on the other hand, Safari version does exactly the opposite, lol.

    Honestly, I’m quite happy with FireFox version at the moment, but I’m really looking forward to the updates of the Safari ScribeFire. :)

    I maintain a blog on blogger about my daughter for families to read so they can follow her growing up since they live in a different continent…. it is only open for invited guests and you need to log in to read them.

    However, I tried to add it via scribefire and I get the following error:

    UNKNOWN_BLOG_TYPE – i was told that I could access it manually but cannot find where…

    I tried searching for information here and I could not find it… can anybody help?

    This looks absolutely fantastic. I finally can get away from launching a Windows VM every time that I want to post a quick note to the blog. I was also pleased to see that you added support for common header tags, rather than forcing me to manually set the font.

    Please tell me that style tags are also coming to the Firefox version of ScribeFire, which is about the only thing needed to make it perfect.

    WOW! Thanks! I have been waiting and waiting! I just love Safari and seldom open Firefox any more. Safari is fast and smooth. The Scribefire download was simple and fast! THe only thing it does not do it seems unless I don’t see the tab, is putting youtube in the draft.
