must have userscript, hope that someday it is not needed and greasemonkey has that functionality built into it.
If you've ever wished the "check for updates" button from Stylish were offered in Greasemonkey, this is the extension you've been waiting for.
Not only does this script add an "Update scripts" option to the Userscripts.org header, it offers automatic, periodic checking... something which Stylish lacks.
It does have its shortcomings, but considering that it goes well beyond what Greasemonkey scripts are intended to do, it's a miracle that there aren't more. For example:
It can't guarantee that it'll track every script you've installed off Userscripts.org. You have to either re-install your scripts or try the "import installed scripts" option.
The "import installed scripts" option doesn't always work. (Because Greasemonkey tries to isolate Userscripts from the rest of the system, it has to guess where your installed userscripts are stored and occasionally gets it wrong)
The update-checking popup is part of the page it appears on, so if you're quick-fingered, you might occasionally close it before you can read it by clicking a link or closing a tab.
On the plus side though, it generally "Just Works" and works beautifully and, once it knows about all your scripts, you'll wonder how you ever tolerated easily-broken scripts (eg. adbox removers) without it.
I just wish I could use Greasemonkey to write Firefox extensions until the Firefox devs figured out how to write a stable API.
This is a very useful script (DUH!).
This has made life so much easier here. There is a script that checks for updates for scripts that support it, but since hardly any do, it's pretty much worthless. This script checks them all!
I'm stumped why it's coded to be active on all sites, though. Seems like it should only be active here.
Best script around.. works like gangbusters. You can get the Updater script to recognize your installed scripts for the first time by finding the script on site, hitting install, then cancel. No need to reinstall, just recognize the install info. I run about 20 scripts and it took 5 minutes. No biggie. Great job Lazy!!
This is a must-have (do you want to manually update all of your scripts?), and delightfully meta (it mods the modder).
theme looks nice too.
personaly i prefer writing my own autoupdate object inside my private scripts but this here is just needed to update every other script wich has no automatic update function.
