YouTube Center

Current Situation

First: All Thanks to YePpHa !!

As Youtube changed their Framework in 2017-08 the Update ist very difficult.

Blame YouTube and Google (or their technological advance), not YePpHa.

Or I suggest to support his new project YePpHa/maia-yt : https://github.com/YePpHa/maia-yt

To understand the details see YePpHa's comment:

Old ReadMe:

YouTube Center Crowdin

YouTube Center is an extension for the browser that will enhance the experience on YouTube by adding tons of new and useful features. See the wiki for details on how to install the extension and how it works: https://github.com/YePpHa/YouTubeCenter/wiki

Contribute

You can contribute to YouTube Center by different means. You can help find bugs (and report them in the issue tracker), help with the translation to different languages or you can try and implement new things yourself.

Translation

YouTube Center uses Crowdin to better manage the translations. If you want to help with the translation of YouTube Center you can find the project page on Crowdin.

Build

YouTube Center is using the build system Ant.

Base requirements (you don't need these to run the extension)

Optional requirements

To build the Chrome or Maxthon extension it is required to be able to run executable, which can be done in Wine on Linux or on a Windows computer.

It is possible to build the unpacked version of the Chrome or Maxthon extension without the need to run executables:

  • ant copy-chrome -- Makes the required files to build the extension file (.crx) ready in the build directory.
  • ant copy-maxthon -- Makes the required files to build the extension file (.mxaddon) ready in the build directory.

Signing

The certificates for signing the extensions have to be provided by yourself and have to be placed in:

  • /.cert/chrome/
  • /.cert/safari/

It should be noted that the Ant build will create a new signing key for Chrome if it's missing from /.cert/chrome/ (Running executables is required).

Ant

The build system is made in Ant and requires both Ant and Java to be installed.

  • ant all -- Build everything below except for the styles.
  • ant devnumber -- Increment the build number.
  • ant firefox -- Build the Firefox addon (.xpi)
  • ant chrome -- Build the Chrome extension (.crx)
  • ant maxthon -- Build the Maxthon extension (.mxaddon)
  • ant opera -- Build the Opera extension (.oex)
  • ant userscript -- Build the userscript (.user.js)
  • ant safari -- Makes everything ready for Safari to finish building YouTube Center.
  • ant styles -- Minifies the styles used. This is needed to be called everytime a change in the styles is made.
  • ant language -- Retrieves the newest translations for YouTube Center and stores it as a JSON file.

Build Properties (build.properties)

The keys in this file have the prefix and suffix @.

  • devbuild -- Set to true if you want to create a developer build and false if it's a stable release.
  • ant-version -- The stable version.
  • ant-revision -- The stable revision used to check if it's a newer version.
  • pastebin-api-key -- The pastebin API key used by YouTube Center to post the debug log on pastebin.
  • name-stable -- The name of the extensions for the stable version.
  • name-dev -- The name of the extensions for the developer version.
  • stable-downloadURL -- The location of the newest version of YouTube Center for the stable version.

  • dev-downloadURL -- The location of the newest version of YouTube Center for the developer version.
  • dev-updateURL -- The location of the userscript header to check if a new version of YouTube Center is available for the developer version.

  • firefox-update-rdf -- The location of the file, which Firefox uses to check if a new version of the developer version of YouTube Center is available.
