Hi,
The instructions suggest loading the shim directly from http://webintents.org/.  This won't work well for sites served via https (eg. Chrome will block the script and present a warning, user must click 'Load Anyway' and then the page reloads).  Could webintents.org be setup to also serve via https to avoid this problem?

Of course I can always just download a snapshot of the shim and serve it myself, but I think I want the shim to auto-update.  That said I also want the shim to support running off-line, so my next request will probably be to get app-cache enabled for it <grin>.  If I'm better off just managing my own snapshot of the shim then I'm OK doing that too.

Thanks,
   Rick

re:appcache the code is all set up to do it I just disabled it because it is a nightmare to manage and develop.

Re:https the certificate request for https is in progress still after a month due to the fact I can't get it verified.

App Cache is now enabled and serving.  It should actually reduce the load on the app engine instance.

At the moment we have a couple of clients embedding it (such as psykopaint) and as such the API is pretty stable so that debugging shouldn't need to be done as much.

Thanks Paul!
Do you see any resolution to the https issue in the near future, or should I just take a snapshot myself?

Thanks,

I don't think you can take a snapshot as it relies on the same origin policy for the localStorage and https is seperate to http.. (this itself is going to cause some issues as I force it to always use https)

Oh, of course - thanks.  Seems pretty important to get it serving from https then.

Yep, I am on it again now that I am back.
