RandoAwake, the @randowhale Google Chrome browser extension!steemCreated with Sketch.

in steemit •  last year

Introducing RandoAwake! The Google Chrome browser extension that allows you see the status of @randowhale and receive browser notifications when @randowhale's status changes!


RandoAwake is a Google Chrome extension that notifies you when @randowhale goes to sleep and more importantly when it wakes up. Never miss out on the opportunity to power up your posts again! RandoAwake uses Chrome Desktop Notifications to alert you when @randowhale wakes up, the current price for an epic @randowhale vote, and the current voting power.

When @randowhale wakes up you will see a desktop notification that contains the current rate, along with a short humpback whale song! The bar on the bottom of the notification is the current voting power and will update each time the desktop notification is displayed.

When @randowhale goes to sleep, you will see a similar message. Below you will see an example of each of the messages.


@randowhale wakes up


@randowhale goes to sleep.

RandoAwake has some customizable options for adjusting how often it checks and a toggle for sound and desktop alerts. The default delay is 15 minutes, but it can be adjusted from 5 minutes to 2 hours.

RandoWake is available in the Google Chrome Webstore.


A big shoutout to @themarkymark for developing this awesome extension for the @randowhale community!

While this is completely true, RandoAwake only has permissions to display notifications.

Take another Extension like Tab Limiter that needs to read data in other contexts. It requires more permission and those permissions are displayed when you install it.

When making a Chrome extension you have to select permissions, and I selected the least amount I needed.

  • Notifications to do Desktop Notifications
  • Alarms to control the delay so we don't hammer Steem every five seconds.
  • Storage so I can save preferences like Enable Desktop Notifications/Sound and the Delay.

There is no way I can get out of the sandbox without additional permissions, and when you do they will be listed. For example, another plugin called Facebook "AdBlocker" it has permission to read data on all sites, not only just Facebook.

@themarkymark, nice short explanation of chrome permissions in this context. Helps many others, including myself, to become more aware of the availability of subtle permissions. Cheers.

·

Thankfully the code has been reviewed by multiple devs. Thank you for your opinion and fear-mongering.

·
·

There were no opinions in my comment.

great job to @randowhale i will install this into my browser right now

Installed it .. but damnit.. just finished the first version of my own randoawake node script today. Guess I was a bit too late with my idea. :(

·

Tried to do a little more than just tell if it is awake/sleeping. You get the voting power and current price.

·
·

I was about to implement that too, but it was too late.

·
·
·

Now you don't have to!

Good job! :)

omg excellent!

Awwwwwww Yeaahhhhhhh. I will definitely be downloading this browser extension!

haha thats funny

😂 😂 😎 cool

What a news, thanks!

Can I click the icon to see the current status? Or is it only by the photo? Cause it told me you were asleep once, but now when I click it does nothing. Just curious if i have to wait for notifications or can see the status anytime i want???

·

Sorry now a fan of plugin. I rather do manual.
I'm bad in security, so plugin is not for me. Good luck though.

Follow me @Yehey
Thank you

·
·

The extension only has permission to show notifications we do not use the permission to view other site data. This can be confirmed when installing the extension. Can see my response below for more information.

·

Currently, the icon will be dark when sleeping and light when awake, so you can see the status right from the browser easily. If the status changes (sleeping to awake) a browser popup will also appear that you will need to close manually.

In the next version, you will be able to click on the icon (sleeping or awake) to be able to see the status and voting power.

·

There is an update planned that will allow you to click the icon for an instant update. Otherwise, you will only see it when you first start the browser, when @randowhale goes to sleep, and when @randowhale wakes up.

·

Update released, it will roll out automatically to allow clicking on the icon and get an instant status update.

Holy crap can you make it any easier! Amazing Job!

Installed it :) Excellent work sir ! :) i didnt knew you could also make chrome extensions ? @themarkymark <3 Amazing work sir :)

·

Hi @randowhale, This is probably my very first comments on yours posts. You're doing a very good job for the community that is commendable. Keep serving the community and taking the Steemit to the next level. It's still Beta.

This extension looks cool and I'm giving this post a shout out.

Resteemed!

cool extension / peace !! welcome back (-: you are the memie of the week !!

hahaha! thanks for sharing!

good post

wow awesome
excellent work .. very useful and i have installed it ..

Great Work
Cheers!

Is randowhale a person? I'd feel kinda like a stalker being alerted to his sleeping habits. Does he know about this?

·

He's a whale. Kind of like a fish.

·
·

That's cute. I just have trouble telling real people apart from bots sometimes on steemit.

·
·
·

those who already installed it could inform me if they are awake at the moment

Installed and waiting for @randowhale to awake from his slumber. I assume when he hits 100% voting power? Curious how some have been able to get votes in the past weekend while @randowhale was sleeping?

check my last 4 transaction not refunded

·

PLEASE STOP USING RANDOWHALE @hassanabid. You cause more issues and waste more of my time than any other user. ALL of these posts ALREADY HAVE VOTES on them. You are not getting a refund. STOP SENDING VOTES ON POSTS THAT HAVE VOTES AND WHEN RANDOWHALE IS SLEEPING.

Note: This only applies to @hassanabid as he regularly misuses @randowhale.

·
·

@randowhale Sir did u accepted my apology i promise i will be very carefull ! if accepted sir please check these i sended 1 hour ago i was curious that will you upvote it or not ! Again Sorry !

·
·
·
·
·
·
·

Thanku so much :* love you Randowhale Sorry again ! :)

·
·
·
·

checked these too sir !

·
·
·
·
·

I asked you to STOP using @randowhale. DO NOT SEND ANY MORE REQUESTS!!!

·
·

hahahah I cannot believe hahahahah
RAGE QUIT :D

·
·
·

😂😂😂😂 full angry 😂

·
·

opss sorry for that looks like i was drink 😋but i wasnt 😋

·
·

i am so sorry next time this wont happen 😍😍

wepa excelente @randowhale a trabajar...

Installed. I have waited you for long time @randowhale.good work.

Wow you were awake for 3 hours ? :/

·

No. Have not been awake yet today. Just released the extension so people will know when I do wake!

·
·

How did some people get upvotes and comments over the last 48 hours if you were asleep?

·
·
·

There were very few testing votes and comments that were made manually.

OK just installed the extension. I really like the concept and will be keeping the extension installed. One feature I would really like to see is to have the ability to click the extension icon and get rando's current status so I don't have to wait for the notification to pop up. Nice work so far!

·

It's on the list! Will come out in the next update!

·

I was having the same idea the more I used it myself and was already planning on it for the next update. Good to see I wasn't alone on that thought.

·

This feature is now in RandoAwake, once Chrome rolls out the update you will have it.

·
·

Nice!

I was in a hurry and the title of this post confused me to think it was awake :(
however, I received the refunds, thank you!
I will download the extension so I don't make same mistake again n_n

How great! i am going to do that right now. It sounds very helpful to all of us to know about you at every end. Thanks for such the great facilitation.

Got it, thank you so much @randowhale you are the best......upv & rsd

great and this is awesome.

Welcome to the work. Waiting for you since so long. :-)

Cool! :D

OMG! Nice, this is what I needed, I rly need randowhale to grow my reputation easyer since I am still a newb and my posts aren't seen by too many ppl.

Thank you for this, I was about to bookmark @randowhale due to it's frequent sleep cycles. I think @randowhale is getting old, and needs more sleep. Either that or to disable the damn comment voting and let it run more than it sleeps...

Very cool.

It would be sick if future updates included some way to pay for a randowhale vote with a single click.

·

You're a genius, human. One click FTW!

·
·

I just posted 2 weeks ago about this. This is a huge deal, Amazon's patent for One Click Checkout is about to expire.

https://steemit.com/amazon/@themarkymark/e-commerce-is-about-to-change-forever

·

I had something in mind like that. It's definitely possible. Keep watching :P

This is awesome. I added it but when I clicked on it in my extension, nothing pops up...

·

It will send Desktop notifications when @randowhale wakes/sleeps.


I'm going to add the ability to get a new update by clicking on the icon. Didn't make the first release.

·
·

Sir everything needs time :) great work :) everything will be happen :) the first step is hard ! and there is success further :) and you have done first step greatly now its easier path :)

·
·

Ok I just saw this and will consider this a response to my comment as well. Thanks @markymark!

·
·
·

·

I wish! I'm having withdrawals.

That will be cool.

Yes I install :-)
