Hi guys. Now I want to present you one very nice and in some cases very useful userscript manager called Tampermonkey. This plugin gives you an easy way to manage your scripts and provides some very nice features like a built-in editor, import and export in zip format.
In this little article, I will show you how to install it on your browser and from where to download it. In my next tutorial related to Tampermonkey, I will show you how to add your scripts in the plugin. For this example, I will use one of the mine scripts and I will show step by step how to load and to start it in the plugin. I think you will like this so, stay in touch.
I decided to divide this article into parts because I think it will become unnecessarily long and you must first be concentrated to the installation part, and after the way how to use it. I think it will became very tough for reading, so I will make it into parts.
Now, let’s begin the work for this tutorial. Firstly, this plugin is available for Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Safari, Opera Next, Dolphin browser, UC browser, and Firefox. You just must select the tab with the name of your browser. I will install it to my Chrome browser. See the next images.
From the last image above you can see that I choose tab with the Chrome and after I clicked on the first one e.t. Tampermonkey Stable. I choose the stable version. When I clicked on the green ‘Download’ button, it redirected me to Chrome’s web store from where you can download different plugins. I suppose you have seen this many times but in case if you not, just see the next screenshot.
From here the installation process is very standard. You just click on the blue button located on the top right, labelled ‘Add to Chrome’ and just follow the instructions.
After the installation process is finished you will see the Tampermonkey’s icon near to the address bar on top. See the next images.
this is the way how the icon looks like.
If you have some troubles with the installation, on the official site of the Tampermonkey there is a very good video with instructions about the installation. You can follow the instructions from the video too.
When you have done with the installation of the plugin, we can make a very little tour on it. Let’s make a little something like sneak a peak for the next tutorial. When you click on the Tampermonkey’s icon you must be able to see the following menu.
Another often used option is the dashboard. When you go there, you will see the following window
Like you see from the image above, from here you can see your currently installed scripts. However, at the moment we don’t have. Soon we will change that with the next tutorial. But for now will be empty. Here, you can see even ‘Installed usercsripts’, also other useful options like ‘Settings’, ‘Utilities’. You can see both from the following images.
On ‘Help’ section you can see many key shortcuts, which is useful.
And that is all for this article friends. If you are curious or interesting after this article, I would recommend to you to check the official Tampermonkey’s site, because there is also very good and useful information which can help you definitely. For the next time. I will give you a little sneak a peak. In the next tutorial, I will put my code in Tampermonkey for better watching the result of the football matches in livescore.com. The result will be something like that in the next image.
The script chooses only matches which play at the moment and color them in a different way:
- half-time pause is colored with the yellow color, like the first row from the image above.
- coloring the team which leads at the moment with orange color and make the name of the team bold.
- when the match is 90 min coloring the background in the red.
The purpose of this script is just to make following the results in a more nice way. But that is now not related to this article. I want to thank you very much for reading all of this and for your attention. I really appreciated it and I hope this information to be useful for you. See next time and I wish you to have a great day. Thanks again,
