UUID Generator

If you want to make an XPCOM component, the first thing that comes to do is to get a UUID for your component.

Here are the two online ones that would just do this job for you free of charge ;-)

  1. http://www.famkruithof.net/uuid/uuidgen
  2. http://www.somacon.com/p113.php

I like the first one better, as it allows you to make a whole bunch of UUIDs, and let you pick the number that you think is right for your dream component!

Oh, one more freebie ;-)

If you are in a really good mood and have a couple of minutes to spare, why not try to generate a UUID from Firefox itself? It’s got an XPCOM component to do this! How fun would that be? ;-)
