User Rating: / 0

Yahoo! has released a sneak peak into Yahoo! BrowserPlus which came out today as

A platform for extending the Web: an end-user installs it and a developer uses its features through a small JavaScript library. Some of the features that exist in the platform today include:

  • Drag-and-drop from the desktop
  • Client-side image manipulation (cropping, rotation & filters)
  • Desktop notifications

You can head over to the main BrowserPlus landing page to learn more about the services.

Here they also show using a text to speech service via:

JAVASCRIPT:
  1.  
  2. // the "service specification" that we'll activate 
  3. var ttsService = { 
  4.   service: "TextToSpeech",   
  5.   version: "1",   
  6.   minversion: "1.0.2"   
  7. }
  8.    
  9. // check for the presence of TextToSpeech, and dump results in the 
  10. // specified div 
  11. function checkForTextToSpeech(divName) { 
  12.   YAHOO.bp.isServiceActivated( 
  13.     ttsService, 
  14.     function() { 
  15.       var _divName = divName; 
  16.       return function(haveIt) { 
  17.         var d = document.getElementById(_divName)
  18.         d.innerHTML = haveIt;             
  19.       }
  20.     }())
  21. }
  22.  
  23. YAHOO.bp.init(function(res) { 
  24.   if (res.success) { 
  25.     checkForTextToSpeech("before")
  26.     YAHOO.bp.require({services: [ ttsService ]}
  27.                      function(r) { 
  28.                        checkForTextToSpeech("after")
  29.                        if (r.success) { 
  30.                          YAHOO.bp.TextToSpeech.Say( 
  31.                            { utterance: "text to speech is activated" }
  32.                            function() {} )
  33.                        } 
  34.                      })
  35.   } 
  36. });
  37.  

They also have a nice demo of combining drag and drop of images, and cropping them.

Great to see Yahoo! join the party of extending the Web!
