Huh, trackforward doesn't work with plus, because getSelection(SELECTION_NORMAL) appears to not return anything (even though the contents of the selection are present in the innerHTML.) I suppose I should port this to firefox for comparison (but conkeror is so much easier to code for) but in the meantime it basically means comments on plus are "less valid" than those elsewhere, because I can't authenticate them.
no plus ones
- I found your trackforward page (http://www.thok.org/bloggery/stufflog.html) -- How do you do this? I've been trying to do the same thing, manually, by copy-and-pasting every worthwhile comment I write. It is, obviously, months out of date and a huge time sink.Jun 24, 2012
stufflog itself is just something that watches the clippings for ones with the tag "trackforward" - in fact it just grabs all of them and generates the page fresh each time, but "moore's law" and it's just text anyway :-)
If I were to try and make it useful for other people, I'd probably do it with evernote - except the existing bookmarklet only lets you pick "whole page" or "text selection", not both (so fixing that would be step 1.)
An alternative would be a web proxy that you always use, that sniffs things that look like posts; this would be kind of an arms race, and probably doesn't work if ssl is involved. (And usually I want the "how it showed up" rather than the raw input.)
Yet another alternative would be for disqus to win, and this just becomes a matter of scraping your existing disqus history... one of my TODO items for the project is to at least pull in comment feeds from the few things that do supply them (disqus + reddit, basically; google plus doesn't even seem to give me a feed of things I've +1'ed.)Jun 24, 2012
- Interesting, it turns out that if I'm careful to only select the body of the post, and not the name/date/edit line, the selection comes through just fine. For now I can at least test for that and pop up a get_recent_conkeror_window().alert() to warn me...Jun 24, 2012
