But you can. I don't mean with some memory hogging clientside bit twiddling but with the now popular HTML 5 Canvas. So, with a few lines of Greasemonkey code, which you can pull from here, I can now push in image rotate previews back into flickr's organizr. The code has to be run outside greasemonkey land to get full access to the dom data, which I accomplish with the following script insertion.
var _s = document.createElement("script"); _s.appendChild(document.createTextNode(window.myFun.toSource() + "();")); document.body.appendChild(_s);
To tamper with an image, usually to its detriment
I was feeling really bored, so I wrote this greasemonkey script - nocomments.user.js.
Should be enough, I suppose.--
This game lends itself to certain abuses.
Today, I decided to license a bunch of my New Zealand pictures to creative commons. The reason I had postponed it for so long was because the flickr UI needs to traverse two pages to actually mark a photo with a license. Since this sucked totally, I sat down and wrote a small greasemonkey hack to set the licenses as well from the batch edit page. This meant that I just had a single click to edit a pic which was pretty OK. You can get the script from here. Greasemonkey is indeed a powerful tool in the hands of people who really want something done - except that they don't have access to deployed web code.
Your picture of the world often changes just before you get it into focus.
Livejournal has done something irritating, all the friend links in livejournal has suddenly become cross-domain. This means that all the stuff I've hacked together to make my LJ more interesting now no longer works because it uses regular XmlHttpRequests. I cannot follow posted-by links without going cross-domain.
Just don't have the energy to sit down and rewrite all those to use GM_XmlHttpRequest... What about your scripts ?--
Girls are like domain names, the ones I like are already are taken.
Well, you can still get one from a strange country !
