TFS Colorizer Stats


colorizer - chrome stats

As a developer, I can see some statistics about how my plugins are doing.  The Chrome extension is actually doing pretty well.  It’s getting about 11 downloads a week which is pretty good given that I haven’t really promoted it anywhere.

TFS Colorizer in the FIrefox Review Queue

My Firefox add-in is still in review.  When I submitted it to Mozilla almost two weeks ago I was asked if I wanted the 3-day preliminary review or the 10-day full review.  I picked the quick 3-day review.  you wouldn’t know it.  I moved from 57th place yesterday to 54th today.  Maybe they’re all watching the World Cup.  Maybe they’re in the World Cup.  Who knows.

    Have you considered adding the option for the colorizer to also be able to color by assigned user? I played around with it and it appears to pretty quick to add this. I just added a user option in your options script, and added logic similar to your startswith pattern in the applyPattern function in your script file”

    var usertext = $card.parent().find( “div.witAssignedTo” ).text();

    case “user”:
    if ( usertext.indexOf( patternText ) == 0 ) {
    TfsColorizer.applyStyle( $card, colors );

    Thank you,

        There isn’t anything else that has crossed my mind. It is a pretty slick plugin, and we enjoy using it.

    I love it 🙂

    I would love it even more if you could select colors and change order of the “configurations”; up/down.

    Allowing to change the colors somewhat removed the need to change the order though.

    Thanks for making this plugin!

    My colleges all use chome while I prefer FireFox. Some time ago, I found the Add-On is now existing for FireFox, I installed and configured it – but there is no effect. I tried to deactivate all other Add-Ons, re-installed TFS Colorizer – still no effect.
    Did anyone have the same effect? Can I somehow provide info for diagnosis? Of course, I’m using the most recent version of FireFox (39.0 at the time of writing)

      Firefox is a bit different to configure – the option is up in the toolbar or in the menu – but otherwise, if it works for your colleagues it should work for you. I use the Firefox version myself, primarily.
