Do extensions like PolarMobile, work in Ripple?

[ Edited ]

I'm using the polarmobile childbrowser extension (for twitter authentication). I think I'm following all the instructions required to get it working - copied the files into the ext directory for the SDK, and put a feature element in config.xml. However when I run my app using Ripple it doesn't find the extension (the variable browser is undefined on this line: 

 

var browser = blackberry.polarmobile.childbrowser;

 

Should this work? Does Ripple load every extension in the ext directory if required? Is there another step? Or can I only test this on a virtual or real Playbook?

 

Update: I tried it in the playbook virtual machine and it doesn't seem to work either.

Ripple doesn't handle custom extensions at the moment and last I heard there is no ETA for that feature being added.

 

Not sure why it wouldn't be working on the VM though.

Thanks for confirming that. It works on the VM today, so it must have been a glitch.
