Stack Override

This extension is a part of my final year project for a computer science degree. It displays notifications when the browser loads a Stack Overflow question page. Once clicked, the notification calls a web API I have created and a new tab is opened displaying the answers ranked according to my application.

Take part and give feedback, your opinion of the rankings is welcome.

rate answer rankings

Feedback will help to improve the quality of the rankings.

    yes at the moment the extension is only supported in chrome... however the extension is really only a means of transport to the web app if you get me... to use it manualy you could get question ids and place them in this url, stackoverride.no-ip.org/rank/questionidhere ... thats all the extension dose.. feel free do make a quick firefox plugin if you want :) I have never made one before so chose chrome, but would like to support firefox

  • I'm afraid you'd need to explain a lot more, to make people install this. Like: how does your rating work and how would it be better than the votes we're already seeing?

As you're saying the Chrome extension is just opening the webpage, here's a bookmarklet to do the same for those not using Chrome.

  var id = location.href.match(/http:\/\/stackoverflow\.com\/questions\/(\d+)/);
    window.open('http://stackoverride.no-ip.org/rank/' + id[1]);
    alert('Works for question URLs on stackoverflow.com only.');

Unfortunately, one cannot add such links here, so it needs another place to be linked from.

(I have not used Stack Override myself.)
