Please donate to support the Perapera plugins

Are you a regular user of our Chinese and/or Japanese plugins? Do you wish to see them continue to be updated into the future?

We get daily emails and messages from people requesting improvements and bug fixes. This is great and we are happy that many people still value our plugins. Unfortunately, we can’t continue development work without your support.

Without boring you with the details, we have hired freelancers for the last couple of updates. One way or another, development comes at a cost.

Please make a donation now to support our project.

Perapera Japanese Popup Dictonary is a great application.

Have you considered making your project open source by putting it e. g. on github? Even though it might decrease profits from donations, it could be rewarding to make this ultimate present to all those interested in the plugin and its well-being; including those who are interesting in improving or extending it.

Hi Felix. It’s actually already on Github. And we really don’t get many donations these days in any case. Thanks for your message. 🙂

Thank you, great work! I noticed only now the possibility to donate.

Are you working on a version that is compatible with Firefox Quantum (57)?

Yeah I think I donated, I’m not sure.

What about this Firefox 57 stuff? What’s involved? You say it’s on github? Where? I use this thing constantly.

With v. 57, Firefox “officially entered a WebExtensions-only world for add-on development.” This means that getting Perapera to work in Firefox 57+ will take a lot more than a rebuild and maybe editing a “highest Firefox version” field somewhere. What is needed is pretty much a complete rewrite of entire sections of the code, and I seriously doubt that the developers are going to do that.

I am going to stick for a while to an older version of Firefox just to keep the Chinese popup, but sooner or later I will be moving on.

Thank you, Perapera developers, for developing such a great tool and keeping it running for so long with little to no income. As others, I *believe* that I donated once, but definitely not in proportion to Perapera’s usefulness to me.
