TEBE Lives!

Thunderbird Environment Backup Extension

TEBE Lives!

Postby spaceShot9 » Fri Mar 23, 2012 12:29 pm

Greetings.

I am a long-time user of Chuck's fantastic addons for Firefox. More recently, I changed to Thunderbird and discovered TEBE. Equally fantastic. I was therefore distressed to see it languishing into disuse. We all understand that Chuck has a life outside of programming but it's just too darned good to let it go. I have experience writing addons so I decided that I should do something about it. I therefore present "TEBE Rejigged". I have restored TEBE to a functional state in the current versions of Thunderbird. I've had it running in TB 10 and, for the last day or so, 11. I've also brought across some additional functionality from FEBE that I felt was appropriate and would be useful. A summary is provided below. I've had it running for a week or so without seeing any major problems. I've run dozens of backups and quite a few restorations into a number of profiles, including to and from box.net. Everything seems to be behaving for me at present.

Internally, FEBE runs Chuck's code version 7 and TEBE was still at version 6. This is an incomplete update to internal version 7. Not all of the functionality in FEBE has a parallel in Thunderbird. Some functionality in FEBE that I would like to see in TEBE hasn't been ported across yet. I've done enough to get it working, hopefully reliably. Despite that, please be aware that there be bugs. Features may not work for you or may cause crashes. That will hopefully be rare but the risk exists. I have not been able to test every possible combination of events/features/operating systems/TB versions. I'd like to get it out into the wild, now, so we can start the ball rolling for a release. I feel that it is now complete and reliable enough to be used by others willing to try it out and report their mileage. If you are comfortable dealing with these sorts of issues I would appreciate your participation to help test this version.

Summary of changes
-----------------------------------------
-Restored and completed box.net functionality
-Added summary report option
-The View Destination Directory option now works and displays in a tab in TB
-Reports are now viewed in a tab in TB
-Persona backup
[Yes, you can run Personas Plus in TB 10 and 11. You do need to hack the max. version number in install.rdf but it works just fine.]
-Added display of last backups
-Added options for backups on startup and shutdown
-Fixed Verify Extension Directory function
-Fixed Check Addon Manager Functionality function
-Appropriate changes to the options dialogue
-Updated the options Info pane
-Enabled restore from online backup functionality
-General code check, debug and update

From Chuck's "Known issues" list:
Some features disabled due to Bugs 239131 and 469203. These will be implemented when the bugs are resolved.
These seem fixed now. No limitations encountered.
- No username/password backup
Not looked at yet. Is it valid for TB?
- No Box.net interface
Done.
- No quick backup
Done.
Help files need editing
Not any more.

...and a myriad other little things.
-----------------------------------------

If Chuck wishes to resume TEBE from here I will step down, happy to have been able to breath new life into it. If not, I'm willing to continue working on it to keep it alive and progressing. If you install TEBE, please report any problems you encounter in this thread. Please provide as much detail as possible including your OS, TB version, how to reproduce the problem and, importantly, any messages that appear in the Error Console. You can access the console from the Tools menu.

The xpi is attached. The board won't allow the xpi file type so I've zipped it. To install it, unzip the xpi and drag it onto the Addons Manager or use "Install Add-on From File" in the menu under the gear wheel icon next to the search box at the top right corner of the Addons Manager

Finally, thanks Chuck for the great work and the many thousands of hours you put into your extensions. I hope you approve.

Gary.

UPDATE: 11/24/2014 - added download link for TEBE{beta(20120510_REJIG)}.zip

TEBE beta(20120331_REJIG)

Attached is a new version which adds the script timeout option. For now, until I rework the GUI layout, you'll find it on the Options tab, bottom right. Please report your mileage. I'm unable to test it's effectiveness in resolving the timeout issue because I don't experience it but I can confirm that it makes the correct configuration adjustments.

I've also restored the welcome page and added a note regarding manually removing previous versions.
