Problem with userscript on ViolentMonkey plugin.

15 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

I want to install "Clear dark facebook by book777" userscript using Violent Monkey plugin, but it doesn't work on latest MX5 (tested on Google's Chrome)

--

Tried solution:
1) Adding @grant from this page.
2) Disabling all extensions.
3) Other themes works.

Solution:
NOT SOLVED: waiting


--

I also speak with the author of this theme, but he couldn't find solution yet. Theme's working for other browsers judging by comments on userstyles.org.

Does anyone know why isn't it working on latest MX5? :(

You can find other scripts for FB here: https://greasyfork.org/en/scripts?q=facebook.com

But I use this one which works on all (mostly) sites https://greasyfork.org/en/scripts/15675-nightvision-mode-夜间模式 

Here's how FB looks with it.

Been playing around to see where the issue is. Only thing i've found so far is that it's having issues with some of the variables set for colours, it won't read them so nothing happens.

Oh, finally I figure out what are you talking about.

I tried to install "clear dark Facebook" using the Stylish extension, while the "install" process never starts after clicking.

So I then tried "install style as userscript", the install succeed, while no change for the facebook theme. And it popped up the warning saying @grant issue.

I'm wondering how can Maxthon help in this case with the info provided that the author had so solution either?

Problem shouldn't be in @grant. I spoke with the author of this theme and he said that MX5 didn't support  :root (css).

Is it really it? Perhaps add support for it?

I'll check this with our developer. So  :root (css). is a kind of HTML format selector?

But I doubt that Maxthon will change at this point just to support one theme from an extension. So if there is any alternative to the extension or the theme, I hight suggest you change the extension.

No need for alternative... Problem isn't in ViolentMonkey plugin, but in MX5.

Here is proof: https://jsfiddle.net/e9me6kud/

As far as i know :root CSS should be way to make CSS (judging by informations from theme maker).

Interesting, although https://www.w3schools.com/cssref/tryit.asp?filename=trycss3_root shows that it does work.

I think the problem, isn't :root, rather it's the var and --one options.

i said same thing, but i don't have enough experiences with this kind of CSS.. Maybe devs solve it?

Doing some digging around and noticed this:

https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/CSS/Using_CSS_variables#Browser_compatibility

https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/CSS/var#Browser_compatibility

Seems these features aren't available in Chrome versions <v48. Seeing as MX5 up till now is based on Blink v47, that's more than likely the reason why it's broken.

But good news is that it works fine, at least with the JSfiddle code that I was testing with, on the latest internal beta. So once that's released you shouldn't have any issues with the ViolentMonkey extension.
