So, this is really just a random feature request being thrown out to the cold unfeeling lazyweb. But hey, it’s easy to type.
GNOME folks, you have GNOME Online Accounts, which is one of the best features of GNOME 3 – a really nice and robust desktop-wide generic mechanism for pulling stuff from and pushing stuff to remote accounts. Awesome.
Now how much more awesome would it be if one of the account types was “Firefox Sync server”, and GNOME could sync its configuration to one?! Oh god, I’m drooling already.
Firefox is one of my primary environments anyway, and Firefox Sync is so damn awesome for that: any time I get any new device or something that runs Firefox, all I have to do is hook up Firefox Sync and it starts behaving just like all my other devices that run Firefox. My extensions are there. My history is there. My configuration is there.
Wouldn’t it be awesome if GNOME was the same? All I’d have to do is enter my Sync account details to GOA and it’d pull down all my GNOME configuration. Heck, it could pull all my other online accounts from it. Evo would have my mail server and identities configured. gedit would have my snippets and config all ready to go. That would make me so damn happy. Hell, I’d put up a damn bounty on it. Anyone? Anyone?
