For those that like to track Google Pageranking for their pages comes this new pepper. I had plenty of time to think on it today while waiting in court to have my speeding ticket resolved. Luckily I got the 4 point ticket reduced to 2 points with a doubled fine. Yay.
This pepper simply displays the Pagerank for each of the top popular pages. The number of pages displayed comes from the default pepper’s rows per pane setting. Knowing that Google gets cranky about constant requests for pageranks, I figured a little caching was in order. Since pagerank does not change so often, caching is set for 7 days. I don’t recommend changing this, but the setting is in the code and if there is enough demand I can add a pulldown to the preference pane.
This has been created for Mint 1 since I donâ€™t have Mint 2 yet, but it doesnâ€™t do anything exotic, so it should still work. Once I have the new Mint installed, Iâ€™ll take care of any errors that anyone finds.
