WazeBar v0.0.16 - Safari Extension for Waze Map Editor

Postby mike-bronner » Mon Oct 08, 2012 2:30 pm

Haha :) , I'm in the US, so the day is just starting here. Probable not for another 6 hours at least, as I have other commitments this morning.

I think I found a bug: enter "barview, or" for a search. Two results, looking identical will come up. Clicking on or selecting either will not result in the Waze map showing the location, but looks like the search is being re-executed.

(There are two Barview, OR cities separated by a few hundred miles.)

Good find! I'll look into that. Behavior is confirmed, I was able to replicate the issue.

I was thinking about this, but will need to do some more research. In theory, all the meat and potatoes is there, it would just need to be wrapped as a userscript.

That probably won't work, but you never know. I think the Framework that Safari Extensions are built upon is very different from other toolbars or userscripts like Greasemonkey.


I managed to unpack the .gzip safari extension.
At the Chrome Extensions Page, chrome://chrome/extensions, there is a "Pack extension"...
Help? ;)

Looking into getting this working in Chrome, this requires actually quite a bit of coding, too much for the moment. I have plans for converting this into a UserScript for non-Safari browsers, but that's only once I have this code-base shored up and stable. Sorry for being the bearer of bad news (you could install Safari for Windows -- I know, there isn't any new development for it, but the latest version will support the extension).

Installed WazeBar on Safari for Windows and works fine.
Maybe I'll leave Chrome and just start using Safari now ;)

I would suggest to add the shortcuts keys to the label of existing Add Elements:
- Road (I)
- Landmark (U)
- Landmark (O)

Maybe you could also include the UROverview script from Twister_UK (http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/145186)


Between, I have been reading about porting Safari to Chrome extensions and it seems to be easier to port from Chrome to Safari ! ;)

Thanks for the link to that script. I will look into it.

Yes, I have found there is much more documentation on migrating from Chrome to Safari, than the other way around. I believe the reason is that Safari Extensions can be much more than just scripts, but can actually integrate into the browser functionality. Not sure how in-depth Chrome lets their users get with Extensions.

In this new version the WazeBar does not show up in the Safari version for Windows :(
Had to install the previous version (http://www.rocking-mm.com/WazeBar/WazeB ... safariextz)
