AntiContainer is an extension and framework to DownThemAll! which allows the user to download resources that are normally hidden behind container pages.
For example it is possible to download images directly from those one-click image hosters, provided an appropriate plugin exists.
Version 0.6., which I just released, includes an easy way for plugin authors to share their plugins and users to install those plugins, either from file or directly from the web.
Check out the AntiContainer page for the download and more information.
When the author provides plugins in a web-installable fashion you’ll presented with an installation page like this:
All the author has to do is to serve plugins from her server specifying the
application/x-anticontainer-plugin content type.
Writing plugins is not the most difficult task either: Check out the Plugin author guide.
If you coded up a plugin of general interest then please don’t hesitate to file an enhancement ticket in the AntiContainer component and attach your plugin to it.
Hope you enjoy this new release.
