denodster posted a topic in Hacks & DevelopmentSo I'm going to attempt to build the March 31st 1998 version of mozilla for PPC using sheephsaver on my Macbook pro. The plan is thus: Build for PPC Remove as as much code as possible (Composer, mail, other unnecessary portions of the mozilla suite that I don't care about) Swap libraries and build for 68k make https work for the enjoyment of secured crappy html web fans everywhere... or maybe just people who want to post to 68kmla on their vintage macs... Is this worth my time? probably not, but I'm also a web developer and have been itching to get a better understanding of the core workings of a browser, so don't try to talk me out of it, I've already sunk too much time into the project to quit now.... So far I've managed to gather all of the tools I need and now I'm working on building. I've created a github site to document my progress here: http://andrew.colchagoff.com/netscape As of tonight I've posted my latest build effort. There happens to be a documentary about this particular mozilla release, being the first one: Let me know if you would be interested in helping with this madness and maybe we can set up some kind of source control.
denodster posted a topic in Hacks & DevelopmentHey everyone, I've been on a search for a few days now for a particular developer tool that was once available for download from ftp.apple.com It's called ToolFrontEnd, It was a plugin that allowed developers to run MPW commands from codewarrior as part of their automated build scripts. Why do I need it? I'm trying to build the first release of Mozilla when it was first made open source in 1998. I've found an archive of the website for ToolFrontEnd on archive.org here: http://web.archive.org/web/19990909113056/http://developer.apple.com:80/dev/techsupport/develop/issue25/mpw.html And heres the dead link for where it was on the apple ftp server: ftp://ftp.apple.com/developer/Periodicals/develop/develop25/develop_Issue_25_code/ToolFrontEnd.sit.hqx Apple used to publish a quarterly periodical called 'Develop', Each issue came with a cd called the bookmark CD, which as I understand it contained all of the information from every previous issue's cd (cause 650mb was an impossibly large amount of space in 1996) Does anyone have any issues of Develop lying around? I'm looking for a file called ToolFrontEnd that would have been on issue 25 and possibly newer issue's bookmark cds. I found the cd for issue 27 on ebay, and that might be my best bet, but I thought I would try here first to see if any of you all could save me the trouble. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Develop-Bookmark-CD-Issue-27-September-1996-by-Apple-Computer-/222064026135?hash=item33b40c2217:g:LDUAAOSwAuNW5gdZ
