FlashPlus - A Google Chrome Extension

I have been working on the FlashResizer Bookmarklet for a while now, and I thought of converting it into a Google Chrome extension. Here is a video of the functionality of the extension.

This extension is still a work in progress and I am working on ironing out some non-critical issues. The extension has been submitted to the Chrome extensions Gallery and is pending approval. If you would like to try it out, you can download it from here and open the .crx file in Google Chrome. Chrome will ask you for confirmation at the bottom, and once accepted, the extension should show up on all web pages containing flash movies.
You can watch out for updates here. Please do drop in your feedback as comments or contact me. Any offering to help with the development of the extension would be great too :)

Deploying TwitteyBot on your instance on Google App Engine

or the deployment, would need

    1. Compiling the source
      1. Sync the source code using an SVN client from here.
      2. Open build.properties.template and change sdk.dir to point to your location of java app engine directory
      3. Run ant clean enhance compile. This should create a svn_root/trunk/war directory.
    2. Google AppEngine account
      1. Create a new app engine application. 
      2. Run /bin/dev_appserver.cmd update war to update the source on app engine.
    3. Twitter OAuth credentials
      1. Head to http://twitter.com/oauth and create a new application
      2. Set the following properties
        1. Application Type : Browser
        2. Call Back URL :[ yourapplication].appspot.com/pages/manageTwitterAccount?action=oauth
        3. Default Access Type : Read and Write
        4. Use Twitter for Login : No
      3. On saving this, you would get a consumer key and a consumer secret.
    4. Open the browser and visit the following URLs to set the consumer secret and consumer key.
      1. http://[yourapplication].appspot.com/admin?action=add&key=consumer_key&value=[consumer_key]

    5. Your application has been successfully set up.
    You can hit the home page of the application and start managing twitter accounts.
    Note: The database indexes may not be built immediately on the App Engine instance. You may have to wait a while before the indexes are built.
