MouseHolin' Yer Writeboards
How do you keep track of your various Writeboard documents? (I guess you can’t have created too many in the half-day since its launch.) Still, the day will come. Why not manage your Writeboards through MouseHole?
Here’s how to get it working:
- Make sure you’re running MouseHole as proxy.
- Visit the Writeboard user script and MouseHole will assist you in installation.
- Begin adding Writeboards at
See, here’s some incredible advantages over Greasemonkey and any other competition I’ve encountered. MouseHole allows user scripts to act as full web applications. In this case, the writeboard feeds are watched and applicable IDs and tokens are stored in the script’s own database.
Secondly, MouseHole can use that database when rewriting web pages! So, whenever you visit a Writeboard, you see subtle text in the corner indicating if the page is watched or not. If not, a link displays which offers to watch the page. I mean, geez, this toupee has a very snug fit. (Anyway, glad to hear of the Writeboard launch.)
