injection

NPM version Build Status

Tiny script which helps you to build better browser extensions for GitHub.com

Why you need this package

GitHub.com is a huge web app with millions of visitors every day. To reduce the serve load, some parts are build as a single page app. This means, not every click results in a page reload. This is a big problem for some extension scenarios.

GitHub.com uses pjax which fires an event after replacing the requested page with the previous one. GitHub-inject will invoke the provided callback when pjax:end is dispatched and you can reinitialize your extension. For simplicity the callback is also executed on the first script execution.

Install

$ npm install --save github-injection

Usage

const gitHubInjection = require('github-injection');
 
gitHubInjection(() => {
  const el = window.document.getElementsByClassName('header')[0];
  const randomColor = '#' + ((1<<24) * Math.random()|0).toString(16);
  el.style.backgroundColor = randomColor;
});
