    And then? Doesn’t seem to do anything further when you click ok?
    The idea is great tho!

    Hmm, I just assumed he had it working; didn’t try; should have.

    It doesn’t work because it’s just a prompt box 🙂

    Well, someone asked for suggestions on Feathercoin new features. A lot of the stuff looks like UI design choices. I added this to the mix which is would be something to interact with a browser…

    This goes off of ChristianRiesen’s suggestion…

    donation reference link aka drl
    coin-ftc://6y2x6dZNuxrnNBNHmwjxZm63CBthWKZHp1/10.1234

    I’d rather put the coin-ftc in the front instead of just ftc. Don’t want the federal trade commission to come after us…LOL That and it dictates the url usage. So in the future it could also be coin-btc but either way the only thing I really care about is that someone can click on a link at a site to bring up a 2 to 3 click transfer of funds.

    for the one that want the direct wallet it seems that the protocol will need to be registered to be include like the bitcoin, yes bitcoin is

    usual way to start app is via a protocolhandler registration

    [quote]scheme (registerProtocolHandler() only)

    A scheme, such as mailto or web+auth. The scheme must be compared in an ASCII case-insensitive manner by user agents for the purposes of comparing with the scheme part of URLs that they consider against the list of registered handlers.

    The scheme value, if it contains a colon (as in “mailto:”), will never match anything, since schemes don’t contain colons.

    If the registerProtocolHandler() method is invoked with a scheme that is neither a whitelisted scheme nor a scheme whose value starts with the substring “web+” and otherwise contains only lowercase ASCII letters, and whose length is at least five characters (including the “web+” prefix), the user agent must throw a SecurityError exception.

    The following schemes are the whitelisted schemes:

    bitcoin
    irc
    geo
    mailto
    magnet
    mms
    news
    nntp
    sip
    sms
    smsto
    ssh
    tel
    urn
    webcal
    xmpp
    [/quote]

    other technics can be used but will be a bit less clean, like registering a content type (like opening a document)

    I will look at what else is possible in another 20H from now

    Didn’t Mike Hern just get bitcoin: url handler standardized? Let me look…

    Yep. He did. It’s part of the HTM5 spec. https://plus.google.com/100132233764003563318/posts/CDnMpM9iV74

    Let’s NOT reinvent the wheel here. There’s already a specification for doing EXACTLY this here: https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/URI_Scheme

    Furthermore, since bitcoin: is whitelisted in HTML5, you may want to consider extending the existing specification rather than supporting a parallel one. Although that’s a problem since the most likely registered handler of bitcoin: is going to be the bitcoin client.

    Yup I keep saying it; HTML5 for FTW 🙂

    [code]bitcoin:1Lga7x6ttEbqNaFMatLrnVkXad4BmBznKv [/code]

    ^Copy and paste my address above into an HTML5 compatible browser and it will ask for an application to be opened, I use multibit (still my favourite client) - any amount of BTC will do 🙂

    Bump! 🙂

    [quote][b]Why choose MultiBit ?

    MultiBit is:

    Quick and easy to install across all major desktop operating systems (Windows, Mac, Linux)
    Secure by design - all private keys are kept encrypted on your local machine (or on a USB stick)
    Faster to synchronize - usually a minute or so
    Lighter - the stored data is much smaller (usually a few megabytes)
    Flexible - multiple wallets allow for a “current account”, “savings account”, “expenses” etc
    International - multiple languages (25+ at the last release)

    If you are an ordinary user of Bitcoin and simply want a wallet that just works without hassle, then MultiBit is the right choice for you.[/b][/quote]

    ^^ I would really like our client to take a leaf or two out of multibit’s book!

    Also

    I am prepared to develop/assist in HTML5 plugins/code snippets if we can get this url protocol off the ground, I am just unsure how we go about gaining the Feathercoin:Addresshere protocol accepted into the next HTML5 WC3 spec (maybe justabit or bush can advise me on this?)…Once this can be done, FTC growth will be seen, I promise!

    Gonna sound ignorant but why can’t we just try this…

    uhhh yeah baby…
    uhhh yeah baby…

    And then make sure the client can read it. submit it for approval afterwards. I know a few unregistered uri’s that work with programs just the programs have to know what the format is and of course that could change…

    No not at all, that is not ignorant, it is extremely valid!

    I have mentioned this already to bush about building this in to the client, I totally agree, if we want an easy path forward then this is it. 😎

    Great idea. I’ve now this on my increasing list of things to look into tomorrow. Keep doing research on this and I’ll get up to speed in the morning.
