OPIE (Ordered Preference Import/Export) 1.2.3 released

OPIE is a Firefox extension that allows you to import and export your installed extension preferences.

This is useful when installing extensions in a new profile, or synchronizing multiple Firefox installations.

OPIE import window

OPIE export

How it works:

The suggested (preferred?) method for extension developers to store preferences is in the format:

extensions.extensionName.preference

OPIE retrieves an extension's preferences by assuming the extensionName is the chrome name (i.e., the directory mentioned after "chrome://" in the tag of the extension's install.rdf). If no preferences are found with the above format, OPIE will search for preferences using the format:

extensionName.preference

Extensions that do not conform to either format cannot be exported. In a future OPIE version, I hope to add the ability for the user to assign a "preference root" that can identify the preferences belonging to a particular extension.

Functions:

Import
The Import window has two buttons and two textareas. The "Browse" button brings up a file picker window. Here you may select one or more exported preference files that were previously created with the OPIE export function. Double click to open a single file. Multiple files can be opened using the SHIFT-CLICK and CTRL-CLICK methods. The top textarea will display the selected files.

Clicking the "Import" button will import the selected preferences and display the results in the bottom textarea.

Export
Click the "Browse" button to select a directory where the exported preferences will be stored. This directory is also the default location for importing preferences. The "Get list" button retrieves a list of all extensions that OPIE knows about (see Configure). This list is displayed in the textarea along with checkboxes to select which extension preferences to export. "Select all" and "Deselect all" buttons do what is implied. Clicking "Export" will create the individual preference files.

Configure

This window will display all extensions that OPIE
has determined has ordered preferences that it can understand.

Discuss, complain, praise or request in the forum.
