Work on xllmnrd will slow down

After the beta release of xllmnrd, it appears that fewer people are really interested in xllmnrd or an open-source LLMNR responder implementation on GNU/Linux than I expected.  Although we have still many issues to complete the planned features, I could not use so much time for xllmnrd as before unless we would gain more interests in it.  So the work on xllmnrd will for a while slow down so that I can work on other projects as well.  If you see xllmnrd is interesting or looks useful for you, please let me know so that I can help you solve your problem sooner.

New feature for pid file landed

A new feature that adds an option to specify a pid file has landed on the default branch. It will make it easier to write an init script.


Localization project for xllmnrd

Localization project for xllmnrd is now open on Transifex. Your contribution is welcome.

xllmnrd is not LSB-conforming

I planned to make a LSB binary package of xllmnrd myself, but found LSB does not support RFC 3542 yet.  As it defines a fundamental API for xllmnrd, I cannot make a LSB-conforming package at this time.

xllmnrd just worked!

I published the latest changeset that make xllmnrd respond with a real answer. Now we can access Samba with IPv6!

How to use a Sellfy “Buy now” button on Google Sites (part 2)

I have written that I could insert a Sellfy “Buy now” button on Google Sites by making a gadget just before.  This post describes how I did it.

A Google Sites gadget can be made from just an XML file as below:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
  <ModulePrefs height="32"/>
  <Content type="html">

Here is the short instructions to make your own gadget:

  1. Create an XML file with the above contents.
  2. Get a HTML code from your Sellfy account with Open in new window selected.
  3. Substitute your HTML code for <!-- INSERT YOUR HTML BUTTON CODE HERE -->.
  4. Add target="_top" or target="_blank" to the a tag.  Note if you forget this step, your product will be displayed only in a small area around the button.
  5. Upload the XML file to any location with a public URL.
  6. On Google Sites, choose [Insert] > [More gadgets...] and [Add gadget by URL], enter your gadget’s URL, and finally [Add].
  7. Then adjust preferences.  I hope 32 pixels for the gadget height is enough, but your mileage may vary.


How to use a Sellfy “Buy now” button on Google Sites

If you have an account at Sellfy and want to promote your digital goods on Google Sites, you will feel sad as you cannot embed the provided HTML code for a “Buy now” button  into your page.

For probably security reasons, Google Sites forbids you to embed your scripts in your page, unfortunately.  But you can make your own gadget that contains the button code and insert it into you page, alternatively.

A gadget is just an XML file that can contain HTML contents.  You can make the XML file easily with any text editor.  If you place the file at any public location accessible with a URL, you can then insert it in your page on Google Sites.  Here is an examble.

But before you begin writing your own gadget, please note that a gadget will be contained in an iframe on the page.  Your contents will be clipped by the iframe’s width and height, so you should specify a reasonable size for it.  In addition, you might have to add a target attribute to some links in your gadget to avoid the link destinations happens to be displayed in the small iframe.

If I could get any request, I would make my example code published later on this blog.  Thank you for reading.
