Hi all, I hope I’m posting my question at the right place.
For years I wrote a very simple thunderbird plugin capable of inserting the selected mail into a content management system.
Before starting development, I would like to know if the different actions I did are still available in the webextension API. I would also like to have some pointers or source code of people that did something equivalent
The code I wrote
1/ reads the windows registry to look for 3 parameters (not a very important step reading a file or hardcoding this values is possible)
2/ starts an indexing program (exe file) with parameters. (This indexing program is in charge of creating a XML file with the indexes, it is done outside thundebird)
3/ reads the return code of the indexing program and if ok saves the eml file corresponding to the selected mail in a folder near the XML file
4/ Both eml and xml file are then copied to a hot folder. Every 20 minutes an external job takes files from this hotfolder and uploads them to the content management system
So to sum up, I need to read parameters, add in the context menu of the selected mail the action “send-to-ged”, call an external exe program with parameters and then save the selected mail to a filesystem folder
Any help would be greatly appreciated
