    Creating a desktop application

    I am not even sure if this is the correct way to do it or not so I will give some background information.

    I want to create an application that works in a similar way to the firefox view selection source “thing”. Ideally I would like to be able to highlight some code on a webpage and then save it to a database.

    1. Is this possible to do?
    2. Best way of doing it and rough cost estimates as I don’t have the ability to code it myself.

    If you are talking about pulling code from a website I would probably build a browser extension rather than a full blown app -- let those guys deal with the hard parts and then you can just access the sources much like the view source selection.

    I agree. If you are using it with web pages no need for an app.

    The Mozilla addon SDK will do the trick.

    As long as you know HTML, CSS and javascript, and can read documentation (comes with tutorial examples), you should be able to do it.

    I am also using the same feature of Firefox for creating web application but these are not useful that is why I am using firebug software for creating desktop applications.
