VivaldiHooks

About

VivaldiHooks is a set of hooks/scripts for Vivaldi browser modding.

It's something close to VivaldiPatches but it has some advantages:

  • there is no need to add every mod (css/javascript) into browser.html: only jdhooks.js should be added there, other files are loaded automatically
  • hook scripts are almost Vivaldi-version independent -> there is no need to port mods to every new Vivaldi version
  • there is no need to interact with minified code; this means more complex mods may be done easier; also javascript mods look much more readable than patches

But some of mods cannot be implemented as hooks, so I don't bury VivaldiPatches.

Installation

Automatic (Windows only)

Just run installhooks.bat. It will find installation path automatically if Vivaldi is set as your default browser.

If Vivaldi is installed in "Program Files" or any other write-restricted folder, you must run the script as Administrator.

You may specify a path in a command line:

installhooks.bat C:\programz\Vivaldi-snapshots\1.5.609.8\Application
installhooks.bat "C:\some path with spaces\Vivaldi\Application"

Another easy way: drag Vivaldi directory and drop it on installhooks.bat.

Note: browser.html will be overwritten.

Manual

First of all, find Vivaldi installation folder ({instdir}):

  • Windows: Vivaldi\Application\{version}\resources
  • Linux: /opt/vivaldi/resources or /opt/vivaldi-snapshot/resources
  • MacOS: /Applications/Vivaldi.app/Contents/Versions/{version}/Vivaldi Framework.framework/Resources

Copy vivaldi folder into {instdir}

Or if you want to keep mods you've installed into browser.html, copy vivaldi\hooks folder and vivaldi\jdhooks.js into {instdir}\vivaldi, open {instdir}\vivaldi\browser.html in a text editor, add line

<script src="jdhooks.js"></script>

right before a line with bundle.js.

You may need to chmod new/updated files.

Deinstallation

If some hooks cause Vivaldi to crash, you can remove just hook files.

The easiest way to "uninstall"/disable VivaldiHooks is to delete {instdir}\vivaldi\jdhooks.js.
