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.

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. :)

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.

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.

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 0.0.6 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.

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.

Version 0.0.7 removes an errant debug alert I accidentally left in the code in 0.0.6 (thanks AlanOfTheBerg!). :)

This viewable area is directly related to server and network load in terms of preparing road images and sending them to the client. If everyone uses a 25% increased editor viewable area, that is potentially a 50% increase in server and/or network load. (There is a lot of caching going on, so 50% is approximate.) I personally have no issue with the smaller editing window and would, for the sake of overall editor/server-side performance, choose to use it as such.

I see. Perhaps then it should be left by default to 700x1200, and only optionally expanded on demand when the full-screen button is pressed? I have often been annoyed by the amount of moving around the map i've had to do, which prompted me to make this feature.

I'll bet that JavaScript is erroring out in beta, preventing it from continuing to load. What is the beta URL, so I can turn the extension off for beta.
