Tree Style Tab Ver.0.15.2014111301 for Mozilla Firefox

What's this? ...abstract

This provides tree-style tab bar, like a folder tree of Windows Explorer. New tabs opened from links (or etc.) are automatically attached to the parent tab. If you often use many many tabs, it will help your web browsing because you can understand relations of tabs.

This is developed under a project to restructure TBE for Firefox 2.

Features & Screenshots This package provides following features.

Demonstration video:

  • Tree example. New tabs from link (or etc.) are opened as children of the original tab.
  • You can collapse/expand sub trees. It is convenient for too many tabs.
  • When you close a tab which has collapsed sub tree, all of tabs in the sub tree will be closed only one action.
  • Tab bar can bemoved to leftside, rightside, top, or bottom. Horizontal tree is also available. Moreover, vertical tab bar can be shown/hidden automatically.
  • You can open new tab between existing tabs, dropping link or URL string there.
  • You can save/restore the tree of tabs over sessions, by Session Manager or other session-management addons.
  • Drag and drop is available to modify relations of tabs and to rearrange. The behavior seems to be like "layer tree " of Adobe Illustrator/Photoshop.
  • If you focus to the tab bar, Ctrl-Up/Down/Right/Left can be used to modify tree.
  • A built-in theme, "Metal" is available. It will match to the default theme on Mac OS X.
  • Multiple Tab Handler can work with this. drag-and-do features of it will be more useful.
  • Informational Tab also works. With the Multiple Tab Handler, Firefox becomes like old Firefox powered by TBE.

How to open New Child Tabs?

The service object of this addon always observes operations to open new tabs, and makes a tree of tabs if the service receives a message to notify to attach new tab to the parent as a child. You can use following methods to send messages to the service to insert new tabs to the existing tree, for your addons or user scripts.

BTW, there is no AIP to control tab tree from webpages, because Tree Style Tab opens any tabs from webpages as children of the tab of the page.

void TreeStyleTabService.readyToOpenChildTab(in DOMNode/DOMWindow aParent, in boolean aMultiple)
Send a message to the service, to attach the new tab (opened just after this method is called) to the specified "parent". The reservation is effectual until a new tab is opened, so you have to call TreeStyleTabService.stopToOpenChildTab() manually if no new tab is opened.
Arguments
aParent
tab, browser, tabbrowser XUL elements, or a frame (DOMWindow), the parent of the new tab.
aMultiple
Specify "true" if you want to open multiple tabs in a time. If you wish to open only one tab, specify "false" or hand no value.
Returned Value
Nothing
void TreeStyleTabService.readyToOpenChildTabNow(in DOMNode/DOMWindow aParent, in boolean aMultiple)
Send a message to the service, to attach the new tab (opened just after this method is called) to the specified "parent". This automatically cancels the reservation after the current event loop is finished, so you don't have to call TreeStyleTabService.stopToOpenChildTab() manually even if no new tab is opened actually. (In exchange of that, you cannot open new tabs for the reservation in later event loops.)
Arguments
aParent
tab, browser, tabbrowser XUL elements, or a frame (DOMWindow), the parent of the new tab.
aMultiple
Specify "true" if you want to open multiple tabs in a time. If you wish to open only one tab, specify "false" or hand no value.
Returned Value
Nothing
void TreeStyleTabService.readyToOpenNextSiblingTab(in DOMNode/DOMWindow aParent)
Send a message to the service, to open a new tab (opened just after this method is called) as the "next sibling" of the specified target. The reservation is effectual until a new tab is opened, so you have to call TreeStyleTabService.stopToOpenChildTab() manually if no new tab is opened.
Arguments
aParent
tab, browser, tabbrowser XUL elements, or a frame (DOMWindow), the reference tab for the newly opened tab.
Returned Value
Nothing
void TreeStyleTabService.readyToOpenNextSiblingTabNow(in DOMNode/DOMWindow aParent)
Send a message to the service, to open a new tab (opened just after this method is called) as the "next sibling" of the specified target. This automatically cancels the reservation after the current event loop is finished, so you don't have to call TreeStyleTabService.stopToOpenChildTab() manually even if no new tab is opened actually. (In exchange of that, you cannot open new tabs for the reservation in later event loops.)
Arguments
aParent
tab, browser, tabbrowser XUL elements, or a frame (DOMWindow), the reference tab for the newly opened tab.
Returned Value
Nothing
void TreeStyleTabService.readyToOpenNewTabGroup(in DOMNode aTabBrowser)
Send a message to service, to open a new sub tree of tabs for the tabbrowser. Tabs opened by tabbrowser.loadTabs() after this method is called, are becomes a sub tree of tabs (and the first tab becomes their "parent".) The reservation is effectual until a new tab is opened, so you have to call TreeStyleTabService.stopToOpenChildTab() manually if no new tab is opened.
Arguments
aParent
tabbrowser XUL elements that you wish to open new tab group.
Returned Value
Nothing
void TreeStyleTabService.readyToOpenNewTabGroupNow(in DOMNode aTabBrowser)
Send a message to service, to open a new sub tree of tabs for the tabbrowser. Tabs opened by tabbrowser.loadTabs() after this method is called, are becomes a sub tree of tabs (and the first tab becomes their "parent".) This automatically cancels the reservation after the current event loop is finished, so you don't have to call TreeStyleTabService.stopToOpenChildTab() manually even if no new tab is opened actually. (In exchange of that, you cannot open new tabs for the reservation in later event loops.)
Arguments
aParent
tabbrowser XUL elements that you wish to open new tab group.
Returned Value
Nothing
void TreeStyleTabService.stopToOpenChildTab(in DOMNode/DOMWindow aParent)
Send a message to the service, to end attaching new tab to the parent. After you call readyToOpenChildTab(), you have to call this method if you finish the operation before opening tab or finish to open multiple tabs.
Arguments
aParent
tab, browser, tabbrowser XUL elements, or a frame (DOMWindow), the parent of the new tab.
Returned Value
Nothing
boolean TreeStyleTabService.checkToOpenChildTab(in DOMNode/DOMWindow aParent)
Investigates that the readyToOpenChildTab() method has called for the "parent" or not.
Arguments
aParent
tab, browser, tabbrowser XUL elements, or a frame (DOMWindow), the parent of the new tab.
Returned Value
If readyToOpenChildTab() has already called, true. if not, false.

For example:


// Example to open a new tab as a child of the current tab
if ('TreeStyleTabService' in window)
  TreeStyleTabService.readyToOpenChildTab(gBrowser.selectedTab);
gBrowser.addTab('http://www.example.jp/');

// Example to open multiple tabs as children of the current tab
if ('TreeStyleTabService' in window)
  TreeStyleTabService.readyToOpenChildTab(gBrowser.selectedTab, true);
gBrowser.addTab('http://www.example.jp/');
gBrowser.addTab('http://www.example.com/');
gBrowser.addTab('http://www.google.co.jp/');
if ('TreeStyleTabService' in window)
  TreeStyleTabService.stopToOpenChildTab(gBrowser.selectedTab);

// Example to open multiple tabs as a "tab group"
if ('TreeStyleTabService' in window)
  TreeStyleTabService.readyToOpenNewTabGroup(gBrowser);
gBrowser.loadTabs([
	'http://www.google.co.jp/',
	'http://www.google.com/',
	'http://www.google.co.jp/'
]);

// Example to cancel operation
if ('TreeStyleTabService' in window)
  TreeStyleTabService.readyToOpenChildTab(gBrowser.selectedTab, true);
if (!confirm('Sure?')) {
  if ('TreeStyleTabService' in window)
    TreeStyleTabService.stopToOpenChildTab(gBrowser.selectedTab);
  return;
}
gBrowser.addTab('http://www.example.jp/');

He will be happy when he uses Tree Style Tab with your addon, if your addon has a feature to open relational information of the current page as a new tab.

To control Tab Focus

Tree Style Tabs controls tab focus for closing of the current tab, by default. If you wish to control tab focus as you like, you have to disable this TST feature.

When the current tab is closed, TST dispatches a custom event "TreeStyleTabFocusNextTab" before focusing to another tab. If you cancel the event by aEvent.preventDefault();, TST doesn't move focus.

window.addEventListener(
  "TreeStyleTabFocusNextTab",
  function(aEvent) {
    if (Prefs.getCharPref('myextension.focus.mode') != 'default')
      aEvent.preventDefault();
  },
  false
);

How to disable tree view temporarily?

Boolean TreeStyleTabService.treeViewEnabled
TreeStyleTabService.treeViewEnabled = Boolean aEnabled

Returns the current state of tree view. If you set false, all of collapsed trees are automatically expanded, and indentation is disabled. If true, collapsing of trees and indentations is applied again. Default value is always true.
