Patch 0.0.16 is now out, which includes a theme chooser. For now you can choose between Default and Dark theme. Additional functionality, themes, etc. will be added in one by one over the near future. If you have a request for certain colors, I can make that, and eventually it will include a color-picker to allow you to make your own themes.

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.

(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).

Patch 0.0.17 is now out -- more in the initial post.

pvaladares, good point. I'll add that in.

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.

Wow, Safari upgrades fast! I barely had it out for minute, realized the error, uploaded the new version (didn't increment the version number, thinking it was too fast for anyone to have picked it up already).

Uploaded dummer version 18. I'm guessing the reason it didn't work in Windows was the syntax error Alan mentioned above. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Sorry if I don't respond right away ... I am inundated with error logs from one user, not sure exactly what's happening. So far 800 error emails since this morning! :) haha
I suspect it's a legacy issue, but will have to research it more.

Thanks for the feedback, pvaladares. Regarding your suggestions:

1. This is on the to-do list (see known issues in the original post).
2. I'll have to evaluate that. I might do that in combination with Alan's suggestion of moving the menu down under the waze menu when not in full-screen mode.
3. Also planned. :)

This is with v0.0.18? If so, could you check the javascript console and see what the error is? Often it will have 404 errors related to Waze maps, which don't seem to affect anything.

Thanks!
