Notes and Info Today, on March 18, 2024, this repository has undergone a significant update. Every file, except SpotOn itself, has been changed. Moving forward, only the latest version, v3.0.2, will be supported. Consequently, all userscripts are now deprecated. The repository has been transformed from a large collection to a more streamlined view of SpotOn, which can be read in about 10 minutes. Previous Resources have been replaced with an image folder. We have fully transitioned to [SpotOnThemes](https://github.com/SenpaiHunters/SpotOnTheme) for all theme repository needs. The previous reports and feature requests have been updated, giving the repository a fresh look. Additionally, some interesting statistics have been added at the top.
Whats new! ## Changelog - 9/4/2024 - Fast fix for broken values in SpotOn, this took me half an hour to find one call it may not be a temp fix after all... - Shifted manifest to 3.0.5.6 ## Changelog - 2/4/2024 Significant optimizations and bug fixes have been implemented. Detailed changes are as follows: - Manifest updated to version 3.0.3.5. - JavaScript file structure and codebase streamlined: - The `options` folder has been removed; `settingsDown.js` is now located in the `settings` folder. - Consolidated `toggle.js` and contents of the `shared` folder into a single file `themeToggles.js` within the `settings` folder. - Enhanced theme settings functionality, particularly the 'Auto' feature, and resolved related bugs. - Refined the extension's enabled state logic for improved performance. - Resolved an issue in `import.js` to ensure reliable importing of user settings. - Conducted code optimization for `settingsOptions.js`, `settings.js`, `search.js`, `locals.js`, and `background.js`. - Corrected a defect affecting the lyrics color display. - Improved code formatting across several files for better readability and maintenance. - Addressed various minor bugs to enhance overall stability. --- 28/3/2024: Removed `declarativeContent` as indicated in the below email (thanks, Chrome); fixed some minor padding issues and corrected some minor coloring issues as well. Violation(s): Use of Permissions: - Violation: Requesting but not using the following permission(s): - declarativeContent - How to rectify: Remove the above permission(s). - Relevant section of the program policy: - Request access to the narrowest permissions necessary to implement your product's features or services. Don't attempt to "future-proof" your product by requesting a permission that might benefit services or features that have not yet been implemented. (learn more). The notes section: When I release a new update, I'll post it here. Most of the time, you can check the [Releases](https://github.com/SenpaiHunters/SpotOn/releases).

Auto Translate (at the bottom you can see images for each toggle section) ## Features a. SpotOn (on by default) toggle one, this has your album art be made into your background **Image** ![SpotOn Image](/SpotOn/Resources/images/spoton.png) b. Translation (disabled by default).

You can also modify the Lyrics color! **Image:** ![Translation Image](/SpotOn/Resources/images/translate.png) **Image two:** ![alt text](/SpotOn/Resources/images/translate-settings.png) c. Custom CSS Here, you can make whatever you want. I suggest turning off SpotOn before editing a theme or making it support SpotOn. By default, we'll have a few themes you can pick from. These are the defaults. Then you have your controls. custom css custom css custom css (Refer to image two.) The `Save & Load Theme` button will do as stated: it will save the current theme and load it into the page without needing to reload. Now, a big note here is that this version of the Custom CSS does not have any sort of syntax highlighting or linting. This is a bare-bones lightweight CSS theme creator. If you need to lint and correct your CSS, you can do it in VSCode or any IDE.
d. Non-codeable themes Here, you can change the lyrics color, lyrics font size, or (with SpotOn, which makes this feature actually useful), change the color of the navigation bar (NB), and now playing bar (NPB). ![non codedable themes](/SpotOn/Resources/images/non-codetheme.png)
e. Hotkeys SpotOn comes with full customisable hotkeys, Play/Pause and Skip/Reverse with your Media Keys! All changeable at `chrome://extensions/shortcuts` | Name | Hotkey | Defaults | | ------------------------ | -------------------- | -------- | | Activate the extension | N/A | N/A | | Hide the Now Playing Bar | ⌃⌘A | N/A | | Hide the Sidebar | ⌃⌘S | N/A | | Like/Dislike | ⌘⇧B | N/A | | Next Track | Media Next Track | Yes | | Open Spotify | ⌘⇧O | N/A | | Play/Pause | Media Play/Pause | Yes | | Previous Track | Media Previous Track | Yes | | Toggle Repeat | ⌥R | N/A | | Seek Backward | N/A | N/A | | Seek Forward | N/A | N/A | | Toggle Shuffle | ⌥S | N/A | | Volume Down | N/A | N/A | | Toggle Mute | N/A | N/A | | Volume Up | N/A | N/A | What I mean by "hotkey" are suggested and used hotkeys (those used by me). The only three set by default and cannot be reset (if changed) are the media keys, which can be made global (works outside of the browser) or only inside the browser. For more information on how to create a custom hotkey, it's pretty simple: click the hotkey box, then on your keyboard, press the combination you want. Let go, and voilà! If there are no conflicts, you'll see that your keybind is ready to use! The keen-eyed among you might have noticed that the list includes macOS keybinds. However, this doesn't matter as Chrome will detect your system and adjust accordingly. (This repository won't; I use a Mac, so there will be Mac keybinds :0)
## Images ### Settings (press the left cog icon) ![settings img 1](/SpotOn/Resources/images/settings-1.png) ![settings img 2](/SpotOn/Resources/images/settings-2.png) ![settings img 3](/SpotOn/Resources/images/settings-3.png) ## Toggles ![interface img 1](/SpotOn/Resources/images/interface-3.png) ![interface img 2](/SpotOn/Resources/images/interface-1.png) ![interface img 3](/SpotOn/Resources/images/interface-2.png) Honestly, this may seem minimal for now, but that's okay. I plan to enhance it further with each update. Currently, it's the lightest and fastest Spotify enhancer online, aligning with my goals for all extensions. While apps like Spcitify enhance the app directly, mine is based on Chrome extensions. (Maybe an FF version soon?)
