Wikipedia Inline Article Viewer (Greasemonkey userscript)

September 4th, 2005 at 2:17 am

My first greasemonkey script-writing experience has prodouced the ‘Wikipedia Inline Article Viewer‘ userscript. The script appends a little icon after internal article links inside wikipedia articles. When you click the icon it will open the article in a little dhtml frame. Allows quick sub-article skimming without having to leave the context of the original article. Check out the screenshot below (click the thumbnail for a larger version):

    KuSh: Greasemonkey has had many problems with 0.6.2 and Firefox 1.5b2 through RC2. Try updating to the (unreleased to blog/site) 0.6.3 or wait until 0.6.4 is released:

    It definitely works for me with a previously hacked version (0.6.2.1) and Fx 1.5RC2. I will try it with 0.6.3 above and let you know.

    I can confirm this works for me for 0.6.3 and Fx 1.5RC2 on Windows. Try reinstalling and see.

    Hi,

    I added a little section to your code (it’s brilliant by the way – thanks a lot!), which adds a line to the WP print style sheet hiding the icons in the printed article. I’ll email you the code if you like. (I couldn’t find your email address on your site anywhere.)
