Re: WazeBar v0.0.9 - Safari Extension for Waze Map Editor

Postby mike-bronner » Fri Oct 05, 2012 10:45 pm

It won't work with beta without some work, as they have changed the layout quite a bit. Since this extension modifies the layout, it relies on certain elements to make modification to in certain ways. If these elements change or don't exist, it will cause the extension to crash. I have started working on making it compatible, and it doesn't look like it will be too hard. (Watch, I say that now and in 10 minutes I'll hit a huge road-block.)

0.0.10 is released now as well, fixing a little bug caused by a type-o in the last patch. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Version 0.0.9 should fix the issue where WazeBar is hiding elements in the beta editor. Please provide feedback if there are still odd behaviors resulting from this extension in the beta editor.
I will be working on beta compatibility for the 0.0.10 patch over the next few days.

Why don't you enable it for the beta, too? It seems that your fix for the screen setup in the production editor has also fixed it in the beta. The only thing now is the Toolbar is half there: the Find box shows, but the buttons do not. Also, since it "isn't loading" for the beta, the WazeBar doesn't appear at all. With the number of users so small who can get into the beta editor, I think you should enable it so we can troubleshoot. :)


Ah!! I know what you are experiencing. My CSS is hiding elements of the WME tool bar. I will work on enabling compatibility next.

PS: How do you get into the beta program? (Not that I need to be, but I'm always glad to help out and test -- and it would give me full access to the functionality just to ensure everything works right.)

Version 0.0.8 is now released. FINALLY was able to get over the technical hurdles of having the map render correctly the first time around when opening in full-screen mode. Also added button to WazeBar, as well as changed original mode to normal display, instead of full-screen right from the get-go, as this will hopefully save server resources.

(Although I'm not so sure of that, as the roads are all pre-drawn invisibly already for a certain radius outside of the normal viewport, and the aerial maps are loaded from Bing servers, so it shouldn't be too big of a deal. Will add extension setting in future to remember the mode you want it to start in.)

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.

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

AlanOfTheBerg wrote:Based on what we understand from Waze, the editing window maximum is set on purpose. 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.

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