Scripts for the Firefox/ Mozilla extension " GreaseMonkey" can provide a great deal of new functionality to DGS.
This page lists GreaseMonkey scripts useful for DGS. The real value is the Desired Scripts section, where users can post interesting add-ons to give ideas to GreaseMonkey script writers.
- DGS repository
- scripts tagged with 'dragongoserver'
- Change activity levels (see also this thread)
- Include go diagrams in DGS messages using Senseis' Library syntax (see also this topic)
- Removes the focus / last move marker to train in overviewing the whole board at every move.
- Moves the submit buttons above message box to avoid having to scroll down all the time to reach for the submit button.
- keep the goban hyperlinks so that once a move is clicked, the goban doesn't turn non-sensitive and you can select another move without having to use the back button first.
- replace the normal DGS goban with the beautiful jGoBoard by Joonas Pihlajamaa.
- axd: There is a bug on DGS: take a 9x9 game - it shows a 19x19 board.
- jrdn: Oh. Should've been more specific in the description. This is a limitation of jGoBoard, which doesn't support other board sizes. I'll update the script to fall back to the DGS board for other sizes.
- Rotate the board 180 degrees when you're the logged-in white player. Makes it look as it would if you were playing in person.
- reduce message box area to use screen estate more efficiently (submit buttons, see also next one)
- Fx users can use e.g. Text Area Resizer & Mover to enlarge it again.
- minimal surface
- remove everything from the page (i.e. own text area, menus, game information, view move button ...), except opponent message if existing, notes and associated buttons, and submit buttons. provide an option to switch back to normal page view. this to focus on the essence of playing.
- opponent access
- in running games, highlight Opponent Last Access field if more recent than Last Move.
- black & white (print style)
- see http://www.dragongoserver.net/forum/read.php?forum=4&thread=40292#40312
These scripts are also interesting testing grounds for future DGS features?
