Creating and publishing a Greasy Fork script

January 29th 2021 GreasyForkJavaScript

I've been using a couple of GreasyFork scripts with Tampermonkey Firefox extension for a while. Only recently has a missing feature on a web page bothered me enough to consider creating a user script myself.

The community-maintained documentation is rather brief and not updated too often. But since user scripts are mostly just additional JavaScript running in the context of the web page, there isn't much to learn that's specific to user scripts. The most important part is the script header with meta keys describing the script and specifying when it's going to be activated:

In my case, most of the code was inspecting the DOM using the and methods:

I used unobtrusive JavaScript principles to add interaction to the page, i.e. I handle events using the method:

A basic development environment is provided by the Tampermonkey extension. You can open it via the Add a new script... menu command:

Add a new user script in Tampermonkey

When you save the script for the first time, it appears in its Installed userscripts list. You can open it in the built-in editor from there to modify it at a later time:

Installed userscripts in Tampermonkey

Although the editor is decent, I prefer Visual Studio Code for writing JavaScript. Even without TypeScript types, it can provide great code completion and help for methods used. This makes writing code a lot easier. And it even helped me notice a couple of mistakes in my code without running it.

Admittedly, this approach adds some overhead to testing the script. Instead of simply saving it, I have to copy and paste it to the Tampermonkey editor and save it there. I found a Stackoverflow answer with instructions for loading the script in Tampermonkey directly from the file system but I couldn't get it to work. Despite that, for me the benefits of using Visual Studio Code overweigh the inconvenience of having to copy the script to test it.

Publishing a script on GreasyFork is just a matter of filling out a simple form. If you host your script on GitHub (or another Git host), the process is even simpler as you can import it from there. To automate updates, you can even set up a web hook.

You can check the script I've written in my GitHub repository. Of course, the code is very specific to the problem I was solving. Still, the general approach will be useful in other scenarios as well.

The key takeaway is that it isn't difficult to write a user script if you have some basic knowledge of writing JavaScript for the browser. It's much simpler to do than writing a standalone browser extension.

Program usually written in JavaScript for modifying web pages

For use of userscripts on Wikipedia, see Wikipedia:User scripts.

A userscript (or user script) is a program, usually written in JavaScript, for modifying web pages[1] to augment browsing. Uses include adding shortcut buttons and keyboard shortcuts, controlling playback speeds, adding features to sites, and enhancing the browsing history.[2]

On desktop browsers such as Firefox, userscripts are enabled by use of a userscript managerbrowser extension such as Greasemonkey. The Presto-based Opera-supported userscripts (referred to as User JavaScript[3]) are placed in a designated directory. Userscripts are often referred to as Greasemonkey scripts, named after the original userscript manager for Firefox.

On Wikipedia, a user scripts feature is enabled for registered users that allows them to install userscripts to augment editing and viewing of the encyclopedia's pages.[4]

Userscript managers[edit]

Main article: Userscript manager

A userscript manager is a type of browser extension and augmented browsing technology that provides a user interface to manage scripts. The main purpose of a userscript manager is to execute scripts on webpages as they are loaded. The most common operations performed by a userscript manager include downloading, creating, installing, organizing, deleting and editing scripts, as well as modifying script permissions (e.g. website exceptions).

Userscript repositories[edit]

One aspect of userscripts is that they can be shared. They can be uploaded to a userscript repository where they become available to other users for downloading.

Historically (circa 2005–2011), created by American programmer Jesse Andrews, was the largest such repository for userscripts. Over time, the site was transitioned between various maintainers before it went offline completely in May 2014.[5] All that remains is a mirror, which is useful for archival purposes.[6][non-primary source needed]

A handful of the most active contributors in the community[7] created OpenUserJS,[8][non-primary source needed] which is actively in use today. Also available is Greasy Fork, a repository largely developed and maintained by Canadian programmer Jason Barnabe.[9][non-primary source needed]

Users of the Greasemonkey[10] and Tampermonkey[11] extensions may choose to install .user.js scripts from any location.

Making a Userscript - Setup and JavaScript Tutorial

Greasy Fork

Welcome to Greasy Fork, a site for user scripts.

What are user scripts?

User scripts put you in control of your browsing experience. Once installed, they automatically make the sites you visit better by adding features, making them easier to use, or taking out the annoying bits. The user scripts on Greasy Fork were written by other users and posted to share with the world. They're free to install and easy to use.

Step 1: install a user script manager

To use user scripts you need to first install a user script manager. Which user script manager you can use depends on which browser you use.

Step 2: install a user script

Browse this site to find a user script you want to try. Here is a sample of the most popular scripts:

Once you've found a user script, click the green install button on the user script's page, and your user script manager will ask you to confirm the install.

Step 3: use the user script

Go to the site the user script affects. It should automatically do its thing. After trying out the user script for a while, go back to where you installed the user script and leave some feedback for the user script's author.
