"Fair play" isn't exclusively for things which make money. ;) There's a certain sense of pride (which can give a lot of emotional satisfaction) when you've worked to create a useful tool that people are using. The "pay," per se', is in knowing that people are using what you've created and are happy with it in the case of something like this.

Different philosophical outlooks, I suppose. :-)

Glad to hear you'd be approaching the other plugin author in a case such as that and giving them an opportunity such as you described.

Ahh, but you missed a key point.

If the author was interested, I'd happily involve them in the Toolbox development. :)

This would strengthen the team working on Toolbox, reduce everyone's workload (including the author who's being brought in) and likely result in a more compatible script environment for everyone.

I also don't know that there's a "fair play" concern here -- it's not like anyone is out to get money from this.

I understand what you're going for there, but part of me kind-of cringes in terms of my "fair play" button being pushed.

"Hey, buddy! Your addon is really popular, and so is ours, so we're just going to absorb all of your code (or otherwise duplicate your functions) and add it to ours so that it gets even more popular and way less people are now using yours."

Mind you, I'm not using that as an argument against doing what you suggest; I'm a human too and human nature would be to need to load less addons to cover the jobs in question. :) It's just that I find the concept to be a bit cringe-worthy. I know that if I had a popular, handy plugin for WME that I was actively maintaining, it would bother me a lot of someone else came along and did something along those lines. Like I said, it just kind-of offends my sense of "fair play." If something that's widely used isn't really being supported or the author wants to give up on it, that's a different matter.

And I agree it would be an awesome feature!


Alternatively, we incorporate all of Junction Angle Info into Toolbox, so that future updates to WME can have some find & replace that fixes both simultaneously... :)

In my mind, there's really no good reason to keep a gazillion scripts -- anything that is found to be worthwhile to most editors should be moved into one main script. This means fewer lines of code to load/maintain (each script needs it's own setup and bootstrap), as well as more eyes on any potential bugs.

Someone take over and add this to toolbox!

The non-Chrome store extensions should be loaded with Tampermonkey. It works superbly.

This script has been available from the Chrome Store for quite a while now. Are you still using a really old version?


It looks like after I removed it because it stopped working, I went to this thread to find the link to it and downloaded the 'latest version' I could find a link for in this thread.
Of course that one didn't work.

I should have looked here: https://wiki.waze.com/wiki/index.php/Co ... Angle_info

Thanks for the heads up.
Perhaps it would be a good idea to give the version that works a different rev number.
They are both 1.5.9 :)
