Re: [Help-librejs] LibreJS - assistance with indiegogo?

Hi Loic and everyone

I had a look at IndieGogo:
-> LibreJS pretty much blocks every script on all pages
-> This doesn't seem to be a problem much - I'm still able to browse and look at projects
-> Couldn't login with LibreJS enabled - but found seems to take care of that just fine.
-> Couldn't begin or complete the "contribute" cycle, which is the critical step

BUT - even if I tweak and hack around and get IndieGogo to work in a LibreJS compliant way (I'm open to suggestions for *how* to do this exactly) - they use PayPal for payments - and PP doesn't work when LibreJS is enabled.

So - any ideas on how one would override/augment the default working of IndieGogo? I'm thinking an add-on that hijacks key pages, but have never done that particularly. Other option is a bookmarklet, but this would require the user to press the "contribute in LibreJS friendly way" bookmarklet every time they'd want to get things done. And on every page in the process...

Also: Who talks to PayPal? They'd be a good crowd to get onboard, and it seems they "already are" ( It could just be LibreJS not playing nicely with their systems, or they just need to get compliant. Maybe RMS or someone with a email address should get in touch with them and see what's up?

I'll be getting up to speed with developing an add-on anyway, but without PP in the loop, it'd be a bit of a non starter.

Shout if you need to.

Hi Ryan:

It is great that you can help with the IndieGogo stuff. Last time I
tried there was just a question about a single script which was in the
same file as the rest of the scripts, and so would prevent us from
tagging it as free. But it's been a while and I don't have access to the
emails I had back then atm.

You can find the list of all the files/libraries that are recognized as
free directly from the source of LibreJS, although it's a good idea to make a
documentation page for this:

More of them are scheduled to be added for the next version 5.4.2 of
LibreJS, along with new functionality (the dry-run mode suggested by
John Sullivan, ...)
