Bonus: files in
~/.js have jQuery 1.5 loaded,
regardless of whether the site you're hacking
~/.js/default.js is loaded on every
request, meaning you can stick plugins or helper
functions in it.
GreaseMonkey user scripts are great, but you need to
publish them somewhere and re-publish after making
modifications. With dotjs, just add or edit files in
$ cat ~/.js/github.com.js // swap github logo with trollface $('#header .logo img') .css('width', '100px') .css('margin-top', '-15px') .attr('src', '//bit.ly/ghD24e')
How It Works
Chrome extensions can't access the local filesystem, so dotjs runs a tiny web server on port 3131 that serves files out of ~/.js.
You don't have to worry about starting or stopping this web server because we put a pretty great plist into ~/Library/LaunchAgents that handles all that for us.
