GM Script: Flickr Photo Favorers

view profile

.CK says:

I wrote a GM script to add a widget box to display the favorers of current photo. It can display the buddyicons of users who fave the current photo. The widget will show 45 favorers per page, and a paging control is provided. You can see some screenshots below.

favorers 2 favorers 3

Your feedback is welcome.

Admin edit: please see dodob19's response below for a working version.

@ federico

1. You need to get the Firefox browser.

2. You need to install the
GreaseMonkey
"Add-on".

3. You need to restart Firefox.

Then you can install the GreaseMonkey Script: Flickr Photo Favorers from the link above.

You can also read about zillions of other amazing GreaseMonkey scripts to use on flickr -- and elsewhere.

flickr.com/groups/flickrhacks/discuss/72157601304343624/, it is strange that if I click on the photo linked from your topic, I go to the photo page (and see the photo)… but inside that page it says “This photo is private”. So if it is private, how do I get to see it, since I am not you!?

Okay, thanks.. I really miss this one. I sent a flickr mail to .CK but have not heard back.

I had a heck of a time getting the comment tool to work again so I thought maybe there was something I had to delete etc.. But I can't find it. I've uninstalled, reinstalled, moved up and down it the list order.. Nada.

Can confirm it works fine with FF 2 and GM .7 on the same computer. Meh!

Funny how I take all these cool hacks for granted. When you don't have them you know it!!

dodob19 says:

UPDATE The edits described below do NOT work, since XMLHttpRequest restricts interaction within in the same domain, so the script might work with www.flickr.com, but not with flickr.com

Feel free to use this instead:
dodob.shackspace.com/greasemonkey/flickr_photo_favorers.u...

Install at your own risk. Description of changes at the end of the post (alternate method).

ORIGINAL POST follows...

I have no doubt .CK will be updating his excellent script to work with Firefox 3 when his time allows. However, the script is so addictive I couldn't wait, so I changed GM_xmlhttpRequest to a regular XMLHttpRequest to get the script working again.

In the meantime, for anyone who wants to give it a try:

STEP 1. Right-click on the Greasemonkey icon on the status bar at the bottom right. Then click on Manage User Scripts...

STEP 2. In the dialog window that shows up, select Flickr Photo Favorers on the left panel, then click on the Edit button.

[If a File Open window comes up, point it to: C:\Windows\Notepad.exe (or any other plain text editor of your choice.) and click on OK.]

STEP 3. Find the following block of code from line 96 - line 121. Use Ctrl-G in Notepad to jump to specific line numbers:


This method does not work. See UPDATE at the top.

You will have to either delete this block entirely, or comment it out (by preceding every line with two forward slashes: //). Deleting the block is fine.

STEP 4. Insert the following text in the place of the text deleted in Step 3:

This method does not work. See UPDATE at the top.


STEP 5. Save the file and quit the text editor. Reload a flickr picture page and cross your fingers :)

Explanation of the change: What this does is call the browser's built-in XMLHttpRequest function instead of Greasemonkey's. The downside is that XMLHttpRequest will only work to grab list of favorers from the same domain (flickr.com). So far this is the case, but if and when flickr starts uses subdomains, it might break the hack.

The other alternative is to keep GM_xmlhttpRequest as it is, and change the script so that readFavorers() is kept in the Greasemonkey sandbox, then use addEventListeners to the Next and Back links on the favorer box. This might make the script safer too, since it keeps things within the sandbox, but involves a few more changes.

Hope this will cure some of your blues until .CK gets around to officially update it :)

Bad news! I just gave it a few more tries, and like I feared, the change to the built-in XMLHttpRequest doesn't work when I'm accessing photos through flickr.com instead of www.flickr.com (Access to restricted URI denied error.)

If I change the script to load favorers from flickr.com, then it breaks the other way, when I'm browsing www.flickr.com (Again, same dreaded Access to restricted URI denied error.)

Good news! I guess people can use this instead... this is the script with the alternative changes. It keeps GM_xmlhttpRequest, readFavorers is kept in the sandbox, added addEventListeners, etc.:
dodob.shackspace.com/greasemonkey/flickr_photo_favorers.u...

Please use this at your own risk. I promise there aren't deliberate security holes but don't take my word for it! Feel free to browse through the script first before installing.

Mini-update: fixed back/next links mixup in updated script.

(deaf mute) says:

Hebbervus Sagax Why do you need it if the names of everyone that faves an image are now in the comments?
They can also be seen by clicking on "xx favourites" on the right hand side of the page.

Hebbervus Sagax says:

Also in the old layout there was the possibility to click on xx favourites to see all the favorers. It's true they are now also visibe through the comments, but this seperate favorers box is just a nice way to present all you favorers consolidated, via buddy icons.
Not a click away, no need for searching between maybe hundred comments, just directly visible on top of your photo page.

Which is what I *wish* Flickr would have done with their new system of listing faves with comments. :-)

Instead of dozens of rows of favers, there should be just one area under the photo that lists all the buddy icons... (I don't like it in the right column; the perfect solution for me would be a combination of this script and what Flickr is doing... All the buddy icons, but under the photo's description.)

(deaf mute) says:

Wil C. Fry I'd prefer it to be on the right, but a box with "Faved by" and a bunch of mini buddy icons would be kinda cool.

Contact the original writer of this script if you desperately need a fix.

Oh, I don't need it. I was simply throwing in my imagination to the conversation. :-)

Normally I know who faved something by reading my Recent Activity page, and go to their faves from there. I rarely look at the faves on the photopage. ...

In a further attempt to get some more experience with Greasemonkey, I hacked up a script which does that. Probably not the most elegant piece of code ever conceived, but I think it does what you were describing. You can download it from userscripts.org here.

Here's a new version that puts the icons back into the sidebar, similar to the original script. Should work in FF/Greasemonkey and Chrome, let me know if you encounter any issues or have some suggestions.
