Any chance of Safari too?

[–]magnora7[S] 2 insightful - 1 funny2 insightful - 0 funny3 insightful - 1 funny -  (1 child)

No. Sorry. But what we are doing is taking the features from RES and porting them over to be native to the site, so hopefully in a few months RESAE won't even be necessary at all.

Even better. Thank you.

RES works on old safari only*, it's deprecated: https://redditenhancementsuite.com/safari/

[–]noah 1 insightful - 1 funny1 insightful - 0 funny2 insightful - 1 funny -  (4 children)

FYI it still works, as, Safari 12.0.0 is yet to be released publicly (alongside macOS Mojave). But yes, theres no future for RES on Safari.

If you really want it I can try to build it for you, or you could give it a shot. Here's our process for changing it from reddit to saidit: https://github.com/libertysoft3/Reddit-Enhancement-Suite

I have no Safari to test it on and it would certainly be a dev build and not something in the official Safari extension list.

Thanks for the offer, but there's probably not much point since RES features will becoming native on SaidIt. I'm happy to wait haha.

[–]d3rr 2 insightful - 1 funny2 insightful - 0 funny3 insightful - 1 funny -  (1 child)

Cool man. Yeah figure out what other features you'd like ported from RES and post them somewhere so we get them onto our todo list.

Only thing I can think of right now is being able to use the keyboard for various things, such as, Save (S), upvote (A), downvote (Z), expand (X), etc. Thank you.

I think there are some steps missing from these instructions (like where to unpack the zip file to and where the /dist/chrome folder is).

[–]magnora7[S] 2 insightful - 1 funny2 insightful - 0 funny3 insightful - 1 funny -  (0 children)

I think you can unpack the zip file in to the /chrome/dist folder. I'm honestly not sure where that is though, I apologize.

/u/d3rr can explain this more, he wrote the instructions and ported RES for saidit.

[–]d3rr 2 insightful - 1 funny2 insightful - 0 funny3 insightful - 1 funny -  (1 child)

Here's some better instructions. It's kind of broken right now, scores aren't displaying. What feature from RES do you want to use the most?

/u/magnora7 will you update this page? I made better install instructions, but the scores aren't showing with our voting model changes. It's probably a good few hours to figure out how to fix it.

New known issues: scores don't display

### Chrome

* Download for Chrome (or Opera) here: https://saidit.net/media/downloads/chrome.zip
* Open the zip file and copy the contents to a new folder, named something like SaidIt
* Go to the Chrome Menu -> More tools -> Extensions, and tick the "Developer Mode" checkbox
* Click "Load unpacked"
* Navigate to the folder you created earlier and click Open
* You should now see "Reddit Enchancement Suite for SaidIt" installed


### Firefox

* Download for Firefox here: https://saidit.net/media/downloads/firefox.zip
* Open the zip file and copy the contents to a new folder, named something like SaidIt
* Go to Firefox menu -> Add-ons
* In the gear/settings dropdown menu on the right, choose "Debug Add-ons" (or navigate to `about:debugging`)
* Check the "Enable add-on debugging" checkbox on the Add-ons tab
* Click "Load Temporary Add-on" 
* Navigate to the folder you created earlier and click Open
* You should now see "Reddit Enchancement Suite for SaidIt" installed

### Microsoft Edge

* Download for Edge here: https://saidit.net/media/downloads/edge.zip
* Naviate to `about:flags` and tick the "Enable extension developer features" checkbox.
* Click "Load extension" on the extensions menu
* Navigate to the new folder you created earlier and click Open
* You should now see "Reddit Enchancement Suite for SaidIt" installed

Sure I'll update the instructions, thanks.

[–]d3rr 1 insightful - 1 funny1 insightful - 0 funny2 insightful - 1 funny -  (0 children)

I think the zip can be unzipped anywhere... and the dist folder is inside it? We'll try to improve these docs.

The BRAVE Beta browser is essentially a more secure Google Chrome clone, though the Brave folks would be insulted about that as there's so much more behind the GUI we don't know about. So Brave Beta can do most if not all the Chrome addons you like.

I followed the Chrome instructions with success.

I have one error:

Unrecognized manifest key 'minimum_opera_version'.

It displays a window with code in it highlighting just one line in yellow:

"minimum_opera_version": "48",

I'm guessing this is inconsequential.

So several things come to mind now that it's installed. A tips window pops up and will do so every 24 hours until I click for it not to. I read a few of them and realized I'm not in a reading mood right now, and fortunately it will come back tomorrow. But some things I need to write down.

1) The Welcome Tip Window could be updated to say "SaidIt" instead of "Reddit". Not a big deal.

" Welcome to RES, a community-driven unofficial browser extension for Reddit. You can turn on, turn off, or change options for RES features using the gear icon link at the top right. For feature requests, or just help getting a question answered, be sure to subscribe to /r/Enhancement. "

" If RES has enhanced your reddit experience, please show your appreciation by donating or contributing! "

2) In another Tip it stated the RES development conversation was happening at r/somthing. This made me wonder...

Is there a way to auto-mirror select r/ conversations on s/ ?

3) Going furhter, is there a way to overlay r/ conversations with s/ where SaidIt folks can participate in Reddit conversations without leaving SaidIt, perhaps in a serverside frame or whatever? This would likely require SaidIt users to share their Reddit login data with SaidIt unless it can be browser managed. Already this is complicated.

Why is this important and how could this be a game changer? If SaidIt can overlay Reddit, who's to say this can't be done for other things. Naturally SaidIt content would need to be very distinguishable from the Reddit content incase someone forgets they're in the "hypersensitive" Reddit zone thereby prone to censorship or worse. Other things too, for example, InfoGalactic is very inefficient by trying to copy/mirror the entire encyclopedia, but have articles that are a couple years out of date. Furthermore, they have ZERO indications whether you're reading a WP or a new uncensored IG article, so if you were to look at an article, unless it's been edited/forked or original you are going to get a corporate WP version, and even an edited/forked version my only have been revised in a very limited capacity. There are a lot of ways to treat/resolve this wiki issue, but this is not the place for it.

Naturally some people may not want the Reddit or Wikipedia at all. Solution: under preferences.

InfoGalactic and Gab may not want to "overlay" on Wikipedia and Twitter, and perhaps SaidIt wouldn't want it either over Reddit or Voat. Maybe it's a new overlay paradigm. Or maybe this is a stupid idea.

Glad you got it working! I was just wondering yesterday if anyone is using this RES feature. As long as it works, I'd ignore those errors.

[–]JasonCarswell 2 insightful - 1 funny2 insightful - 0 funny3 insightful - 1 funny -  (0 children)

It works.

Initially I found it annoying because I finally was feeling accustomed to SaidIt and all of a sudden there's all this extra stuff messing it up. I'm sure I'll grow to appreciate these features. I like features.

I think we should un-sticky this and sticky this instead: https://saidit.net/s/SaidIt/comments/8yt/saiditnet_dec_19_2018_new_saidit_android_app/

Good idea, done.
