Re: WazeBar v0.0.6 - Safari Extension for Waze Map Editor

Thanks Alan,
I was going to add that option in the next update, I kind of figured that might be useful. Just to get an idea, what would your impetus be for using the original size instead of full-screen? (Just trying to figure out what the different use-cases are for that.)

Regarding the beta: if it causes issue (and you're right, it's because I don't have access), you can disable the extension in Safari > Preferences > Extensions (which you probably already knew, but in case anyone else is reading this).

Also, you caught me! I will remove that immediately.

Patch 0.0.6 is now out with quasi-full-screen editing! :) I still have some tweaking to do to fix the initial loading issue where the map doesn't load full-screen. Once you move the map, it will snap to full-screen along with the other layers.

Re: WazeBar v0.0.4 - Safari Extension for Waze Map Editor

Postby mike-bronner » Tue Oct 02, 2012 11:19 pm

Version 0.0.5 is now a reality:

  • Ability to enable or disable WME Color Highlights plug-in.
  • Ability to use original WME Color Highlights interface, instead of integrating into WazeBar.

To make these changes, go to Safari > Preferences > Extensions > WazeBar. Note that making changes will refresh the page, so you might loose any unsaved edits.

Patch 0.0.4 is now released. If you had version 0.0.2 or later installed, you should be able to do an in-place upgrade. Otherwise, please download latest version and install manually.

In this update:
  • Fixed drop-down lists in WMECH Advanced Options menu.
  • Added road type highlighting in Advanced Menu that was added to WMECHv1.3.

Re: WazeBar v0.0.3 - Safari Extension for Waze Map Editor

Thanks Alan!

I have noticed this once or twice as well -- I haven't seen this happen consistently, though. In debugging this issue, it seems that somewhere along the line a script hangs during the load process of WazeBar. I'm not sure yet if this has to do with WME Color Highlights, or something in WazeBar. I will keep an eye on this and try to figure it out. I have only seen this when reinstalling the extension, not during normal operation. Please let me know if this happens after the extension has been installed.

The default Waze toolbar disappears only once the WazeBar has loaded, and the odd behavior there probably has something to do with the previous issue of the script hanging up somewhere.

On another note, I have contacted the developer of ExtTools and am hopeful that they give permission to integrate it.

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.

robin1979 wrote:Rename the .safariextz to .gz and see for yourself :). Might just work as is (but I'm not that experienced extension coder, but you seem to be :D).

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.

robin1979 wrote:(Any chance of integrating exttools as well? :))

This is something I am considering in the near future, if the extols developer is amicable to the idea. I would love to have wazebar be able to unify all the tools.

Thanks for the feedback guys, lots of great ideas. :)

Updated with patch 0.0.3:

  • Updated permalink button to allow for right-clicking and copying of link, so that the user can avoid having to refresh the page and possibly loose edits.

If you had version 0.0.2 you should now be able to update in place from within the Safari Preferences pane. Please let me know if there are any issues with that process.
I will update the icon later on when I fine-tune the interface overall.

Thanks!

Updated to version 0.0.2 with the following fixes:
  • Fixed search results box not disappearing unless selecting a search result. Now it will disappear when clicking anywhere outside the results box.
  • Fixed issue with edits not being recognized by WazeBar. Edits should now properly enable save, undo, redo, and trash buttons.
  • Added info text when cursor is hovered over menu bar buttons.
  • Added user info popover when clicking on the username.
  • Fixed download issue where Safari Extension would show as gibberish when clicking on the Current Version link, instead of downloading the extension.
  • Fixed Extension Update functionality, so that going forward updates can be performed in place, and you won't have to uninstall the old version, then install the new version. Instead, simple go to Safari Preferences > Extensions > Updates.

Thanks for the feedback Alan, will work on optimizing the permalink button for the next patch.

Hi Alan!
Thanks so much for the feedback. I will start implimenting your suggestions ASAP.

1. Make search-box results go away by clicking anywhere outside of the results list, will be fixed next update.
2. Permalink is 6th button to the right of the search box, the curved arrow.
3. Yellow highlight is part of timbones' update in WME Color Highlights v1.3, I'll see if there's a way to turn that off, optionally.
4. Tooltips will be added next update.
5. Will add that as well -- you can still see your info behind the side-panel, if you hide it, as well.

I'll add screenie to original post.

Thanks again! :)

~Mike

WazeBar v0.0.54 - Safari Extension for Waze Map Editor

Postby mike-bronner » Mon Oct 01, 2012 12:50 am

After some weeks of work I have put together "WazeBar" (working title, suggestions welcome). The goal is to de-clutter and simplify editing maps using the Waze Map Editor in Safari. Additionally, this extension includes timbones' WME Color Highlights.

Currently WazeBar is only available for Safari. It will also be replacing the previous extension "WME Color Highlights for Safari" going forward.

The extension can be downloaded here: http://www.rocking-mm.com/WazeBar/WazeBar.safariextz.
For more details and complete change log, please visit http://www.rocking-mm.com/WazeBar/.

Please uninstall the WME Color Highlights extension, or WME Color Highlights script, if you have it installed as it may be causing conflicts when installed twice. (WME Color Highlights is included in WazeBar, so you don't need it installed in addition.)


Patches 0.0.52-54 are available:
  • Script Update: updated URO to version 1.18.
  • Bug Fix: issues where integrated WMECH city and editor drop downs were not updating should update correctly now.
  • Bug Fix: permalink button should now correctly update.

Known issues:
  • WMECH options don't update properly in certain situations.
  • URO hover information isn't displayed.
  • JNF doesn't always fix all issues on a node.
These issues may be caused by WazeBar not integrating the scripts as expected, or by specifics with Safari. We are working on resolving them.

New Features Under Consideration:
  • Legend for keyboard shortcuts.
  • InstaPaper integration to take permalinks with you, and follow up on them later, even share them.
  • Add settings control panel to front-end UI, eliminate Safari Extension settings.

Integrated Scripts:
  • WME Color Highlights by timbones. (support thread)
  • UROverview script (support thread)
  • GeoWipe script by bgodette.
  • Junction Node Fix script by bgodette.

Script Integrations under Consideration:

Thanks!
