SteemPlus 2.5 : Integration of Steemit More Info features

in #steemdev6 years ago (edited)

Steemit More Info is a great extension and I have a lot of respect for @armandocat and his work. He didn't show up for over five months however and the Steemit interface has changed since then.
Since his code is opensource, I have decided to fix it and integrate it into my extension SteemPlus. Our code structures being very different, this was a two men jobs for several weeks but we're finally done.

The major features have been implemented, read on to learn about them. Installation information at the end. SteemPlus is available on Chrome, Firefox and Opera.

The update will be live in less than an hour.


If you keep using both SteemPlus and Steemit More Info after the update, you might have some duplicate features. To fix that, either uninstall Steemit More Info (recommended) or go to SteemPlus settings (on the extension popup) and disable Steemit More Info features.

New features from SMI :

Votes information

You get to see the percentage of the votes received and their value in SBD for a post or a comment

Votes Tab

A new tab in the user profile showing all incoming and outgoing votes (redesigned from SMI version)

Links Tab

Links to the most useful Steembased applications

Search bar

Shows directly research results in an overlay (it wasn t working anymore in SMI)

Mentions Tab

Shows who mentionned you and where

Vote values

When you upvote or downvote, you will see how much payout you're adding, directly on your voting slider

Followers Table

Filter and sort your followers and followees (+ add Follow/Unfollow, not present on SMI)

Boost Button

GIF Picker

Shows the markdown preview side by side with the post for easier readability.

You can chose individually which features you want to use or not in the Settings of SteemPlus popup.

Overview of features

Available on Steemit and Busy

  • Voting slider for minnows (you do not need to vote at 100% anymore!)
  • True value of your account on your wallet (calculated with current SBD and STEEM market prices)
  • Delegation button in your wallet (with list of delegatees and undelegate button)
  • One click switch between Steemit , Busy, Utopian and Steemd

Available on Steemit (and mspsteem)

  • Feed+ : Filter your feed by tags, resteems (hide, show, blacklist, whitelist), reputation and sort it by upvotes/date/payout
  • STEEM/USD and SBD/USD values in the user dropdown
  • Option to add beneficiaries to your post (you can say that 10% of your post payout will go to one of your friends for example)
  • Cool badges on user profiles show their rank: Plankton, Minnow, Dolphin, Orca and Whales
  • Direct transfer to users

Detailed features

Login via SteemConnect

Before accessing the SteemPlus features, you first need to connect using SteemConnect v2. SteemConnect is very safe and is the standard way to give access to Steem Apps.

Simply click the gray SteemPlus logo and it will start the login via SteemConnect. Follow the instructions and add your private key. Once done you will be redirect to the page you were before and see that the SteemPlus logo has turned blue:


Congratulations! You now have access to all the features!


Adding two new functions to the user dropdown on Steemit:

  • Direct access to Market
  • Base price from the blockchain
  • STEEM/USD price (Coinmarket API)
  • SBD/USD price (Cryptonator API)

One click switch

  • Shift+Alt+S : Any of the other three websites to Steemit
  • Shift+Alt+U : Any of the other three websites to Utopian
  • Shift+Alt+B : Any of the other three websites to Busy
  • Shift+Alt+D : Any of the other three websites to Steemd
  • Voting slider for Minnows

    To access the voting slider, click on the popup and go to Upvote tab, make sure the url corresponds to what you want to upvote and click Upvote. For a comment, first click on the date to change the URL.

    From the same popup you can also access the options to turn on and off the features.

    True account value

    On both Steemit and Busy, you can check the true value of your account (based on current value of SBD and Steem rather than an average).

    Delegation button

    You can find the delegation button in both Steemit and Busy wallets:



    Simply fill the form and you will be redirected via SteemConnect to confirm. Note that you can undelegate directly from there and see who are your delegatees. If you undelegate, you won't be able to use your previously delegated SP during 7 days.


    On Steemit you can now add beneficiaries to your posts and decide which percentage of your post they will receive.


    Note the following:

    • Beneficiaries rewards will be perceived on SP only
    • @steem-plus will get a 5% reward
    • You cannot exceed 100% obviously
    • You cannot exceed 6 beneficiaries


    Wanna see what your Steem rank is, as well as others ? The badges are here for you!


    You can chose between the ones above and those from this serie:


    I kept the best for the end!

    Hope this helps!

    I am working on SteemPlus on my free time because I think it can make Steemit/Busy better by adding some features. If you like my work, please upvote and resteem so that I can keep doing what I'm doing. Thank you ;)

    can i get upvote and dollar for no reason @devfund @steem-plus

    Will it be updated to 2.5 automatically on firefox, or do I have to reinstall every new version?

    On Firefox I think that you need to update manually.
    Btw, it was buggy on Firefox, I just pushed a patch, version, available within an hour.

    Hey @stoodkev thank you so much for this! I've been waiting for this for a long time.

    It looks like there is one feature of SteemIt More Info that is not included in SteemPlus, and it's one that I particularly like - it makes the info shown at the bottom of the post like the tags, votes, and other buttons sticky so you can see them even before you scroll to the bottom of the post, here's an example:

    Hey, glad you like it!
    I will work on adding it ASAP =)

    This is hands down the best I have seen so far lol seriously, these features though lol I really like the slider bar.

    100 PERCENT.jpg

    Ooooh, now I understand this. Because most of the time you give less-percentage votes... I don't know why it was so hard to wrap my head around. Lol.

    Super nice! I hope one day the Firefox version lets me log into Steem+ with Steemconnect so that I can use the addon. :D

    Should work on Firefox starting with version, available within an hour.

    thats the feature I use most

    Wow amazing thanks for your hard work! This is exactly the kind of thing we've needed for a long time and good to see someone is actually doing something about it! I think if left to certain other people then Steemit would just meander along because of certain incentives or lack of incentives. Big thanks to @jerrybanfield as he gets it and knows user friendliness for Steemit is absolutely paramount and thanks for his budget allowing good for ALL here!

    hanks, very good post !!!!

    Awesome Work!

    Keep it up!!!

    I can't logiiiiinnn :((( Steemconnect redirects me to

    Then Steemit just loads the @steem-plus profile and the extension does nothing. :( I really wanted to try out the new stuff on Firefox.

    Firefox always has some bugs with native Chrome extensions, I ll take a look and see what I can fix. In the meantime, it works like a charm on Opera and Chrome.

    I can't use any of those :( I'm on a very slow computer and Chrome kills it. Firefox is the only light enough browser for me to use without my computer starting to roleplay as a brick.

    We ll try to fix it by next week

    Thanks, glad you like it! @jerrybanfield and @utopian-io sureley helped a lot!

    Thanks for fixing it! I can't wait to get home and try it. I have been having problems with Steemit more info and it has stopped working completely. Luckily, a friend referred me to to see my stats.

    Glad you like it! Don't hesitate to give your feedback!

    May I ask what is the maximum load it can tolerate? In term of the number of visitors.

    Maximum load? It s an extension so it works locally.

    Thanks for this. I just tried to test it in firefox (latest win 10) and the plugin installed ok, but after I logged in to steemconnect, I am taken to your profile but I am not logged in. When I click on the plugin icon in firefox I just see the same login button and no matter if I login again, the plugin never recognises the fact.

    Hi, indeed we seem to have some issues with Firefox, that didn't show up in developement mode, I guess it s because of the use of Chrome Foxified, I ll do my best to make it work in the coming week!

    This is awesome!! I didn’t know anything like this was available. I will download the chrome extension and check out all the new features!! Thanks for the hard work and great update!! Resteem

    Hope you checked it out and liked it! Happy steeming!
