Developer Information

Roadmap ahead

add as a tab in firebug?? (any open-source developer up for this, eh?? email me! mimecuvalo@gmail.com)
x11 forwarding, maybe (patches welcome!)
Make it faster
- native typed arrays don't work with writeByteArray and readByteArray. laaaamesauce. some way to cast?
- however, even if typed arrays did work, manipulating arrays is many times slower than manipulating strings (see benchmark)
- big part is converting from string<->array. scriptableunicodeconverter seems nice but can't convert extended ascii?
- WTF? why is using NSS + ctypes slower than the js blowfish implementation?
  - sample2.html
  - WeaveCrypto.js?raw=1
  - test_crypto_crypt.js
