comment Get API responses in formats other than JSON
Can you tell us why you want the data in XML format? Most programs I can imagine someone building would be on the client side, and JSON tends to work really well natively with JavaScript. Perhaps explaining more about what you're trying to do would help us understand the importance of having access to this data in XML format. Hope this helps!

Hey George, I'm assuming this is still broken? It looks like an awesome script, in fact, I'm surprised SE hasn't taken this and made it an actual feature. How cool! ..... Uncaught ReferenceError: Attacklab is not defined how-to-run-nodejs-on-linux-platform (1):17 Failed to load resource http://fhc.quickmediasolutions.com/process.php

comment Bring back the Bold!
It's the $5 fee that's the most complex, but once you get past that, it's a lot less of a hassle. ;) (And yes, I think I'm using some of your scripts. I was sad to see transmogrify break ;( )

Hey Manishearth, what you can do is go into the directory in Chrome where the userscript is installed, and grab both the script AND the manifest file. add in manifest_version:2 property to the manifest, then you can ZIP it up and upload it to the Chrome Web Store! Basically, Userscripts are converted to extensions automatically by Chrome, and this would virtually eliminate installation issues. Hope this helps! :)

comment Real-time desktop notifications for Stack Exchange inbox ( Chrome / Firefox )
@JamesTheAwesomeDude - In your SO profile, click "network user", then grab the uid out of the url. Then in Firefox, just disable and re-enable the extension and the configuration window will pop up and you can paste in your accountId (or "uid" as Rob W calls it)

comment StackInbox - a Chrome/Firefox Extension that Preserves New Stack Exchange Inbox Messages Until They Are Actually Read
You're welcome. I did look into it a bit, and it would be hard to implement in StackInbox but not in another extension. You could use document.addEventListener("DOMNodeInserted" event to listen for changes to the inbox's little red icon, then make an AJAX request to meta.pm.stackexchange.com/inbox/genuwine to get the inbox contents and grab the first item, using it in your webkit notification. Hope this helps! :)

The Firefox version of StackInbox is complete; however, StackInbox solves a different problem than what you're looking for with desktop notifications. Instead, see Real-Time Desktop Notifications for Stack Exchange. It's a Chrome Extension that does what you're looking for, and I think it would be easier to port that to Firefox than to try and repurpose StackInbox. Hope this helps! :)

comment Real-time desktop notifications for Stack Exchange inbox ( Chrome / Firefox )
Hi Rob, this can be done in Firefox too. The HTML5 Notifications for Firefox extension let's Firefox use window.webkitNotifications in the same way as you consume the API in Chrome. Your extension would of course depend on another Firefox extension, but you'd have at least one avid user. See this meta post for more details. Hope this helps!

so that when a new inbox item was added, it would also generate a webkitNotification. It would be interesting to see if the theory is right that there'd be a notification for each SE tab, or if it just sends one. :) Hope this helps. Enjoy!

Here's a link to the original Userscript. You can download from Assembla and install via Greasemonkey. As I mentioned here, remember, there's zero cross-domain communication, at least not that I'm aware of, but this will give you an idea of where I started. If you wanted to play w/desktop notifications, you'd add them in the function on line 132 I believe, storeNewInboxItems. You could start by adding in a call to webkitNotifications.

I tested this in some other browsers, and it works great, so I updated this listing.
