This project is to develop a plug-in for Firefox. The plug-in retrieves the latest blog post title from a user-specified RSS feed URL and inserts it as a link into new emails or blog comments. Here is more detail: 1) Retrieve the latest post title from a user-specified RSS feed URL (parse the RSS feed and get the most recent post title and link). 2) Detect when the user is composing a message using gmail, Yahoo! Mail, or Hotmail and insert the post title as a link to the blog post in the email signature. To do this, you will probably need to insert HTML into the body of the user's email, but I'm not sure. 3) Detect when the user is composing a comment to a blog post and insert the post title as a link to the blog post in the comment. (This might be hard, let me know if it is.) Allow a way for user to turn this on/off. 4) Same insertion as above, but via a menu item in Firefox that does a paste when clicked (allow user to turn this on/off). 5) Allow the user to specify some text in addition to the link itself, such as "Check out my latest blog post at: %link%" 6) Automatically add the following text after the inserted link: "[url removed, login to view], Link your own blog posts". (Note: the text "[url removed, login to view]" is a link.) It should be possible for the user to turn this extra text off, but it is on by default. Needs to work in Windows and Mac Firefox (please ask if this isn't feasible for you).
