HypeMachine Extension Fixed

Sorry it took so long…

While I was away on vacation in Turkey (will post photos later), HypeMachine and Chrome decided to both muck up my extension. This is a short blog post to inform everyone that the code found on GitHub is now fixed and working again. Hurray!

Please go to https://github.com/fzakaria/HypeMachine-Extension to get the latest Chrome Extension.

Call to arms

What I was not able to fix however is the nifty/spiffy look of the downward arrow button. I’d love if someone can please contribute to the project and fix the arrow. I liked the original implementation of it being done in pure CSS as it blended in beautifully with the Hypem page. Please either contact me or submit a patch to the GitHub repository!

The fix

The fix for the problems were rather straightforward and entailed the following:

  1. Updating the manifest.json for Chrome Extension to version 2.
  2. Updating the tracks variable (that is read when injected) to the new variable name of window.displayList[‘tracks’]

  1. @Andrew: Can you email me a photo of what you are seeing?
    Did you re-download the latest files from GitHub?

    I just did a fresh install (downloaded fresh from GitHub and installed the extension) and it works.
    Albeit, you won’t see a full arrow (I need someone to help me fix that) but you will see a clickable half arrow thingy next to the play button!

  2. i cant get anything to show. im not seeing the extension at all. i downloaded the latest stuff but so far cant get it to pop up. im not seeing a button either like then older version
