GraphFi + user tags chrome extension March 28, 2017 2:34 PM   Subscribe

Hi friends, Remember when yourcelf made GraphFi and it was great? Well, it still is great, only now it is also available as a chrome extension that I threw together. I've also added another thing that I've always wanted to make threads easier to follow - user tagging! Yay! Enjoy it (or hate it), and let me know what you think!

Aw geez - this page has revealed a bug in the thing - I've fixed it and am waiting for it to publish, but you'll want to make sure that the extension has bumped to 1.0.3 or that you update.

Don't tell hacker news!

Is there documentation? I've installed it, but I can't tell if it's working.

jjwiseman: what theme are you using? When I first installed it, there was no visible effect (modern theme, dark mode), but after I switched to classic it worked.

Starting to regret putting a garish blue TEST TAG next to my username... the "Edit tag" link doesn't appear to let me change or delete it.

(Neither does removing and reinstalling the extension...)

I just want to say that GraphFi has made me able to follow along the political megathreads and also still have a life, and I'm very very thankful for it.

Apologies for that, Jpfed - introduced a new bug tracking down another one ¯\_(ツ)_/¯. If you update it it should work as expected now, and play a bit nicer with other themes. thanks!

What happens if you use this in a politics thread?

I tried the new version and it still didn't work. I looked at the source code and saw that it only works for https://*.metafilter.com, which means that it won't work unless you have "Use secure browsing?" checked in your preferences. But once I did that, it worked!

Going to Maine: there are hundreds and hundreds of one-liner comments that amount to "RARGH", using graphFi I quickly scroll to comments with the most favorites, where the juicy content is.

I've noticed a bug! When you scroll down on a page and the top menu bar collapses, usually there's a little head icon there you can click to navigate to recent activity, memail, preferences, etc. But once you visit a thread and the graphfi box shows up (automatically), it disappears. Clicking the x on the graphfi sidebar disappears that navigation icon from the top menu bar completely, and doesn't show back up again until you visit a non-thread page.
