I’m happy to present to you my little helper extension for Chrome.
Chandlery for Fallen London
As long as your Fallen London tab is open, Chandlery will monitor and update the tab title with your current number of actions and Opportunity deck cards.
So if you have, say, 16 actions and 5 cards in your Opportunity deck, the tab title will be "(16)  Fallen London!". As an extra bonus, if your tab is pinned (and does not show the title), the tab will subtly animate whenever the title changes (default Chrome functionality).
It will also optionally show desktop notifications when your candle or deck are full. The idea is to alert you that you start losing potential actions/opportunities because your pool is filled. This is enabled by default for actions.
The extension works by observing an open Fallen London page, no requests to the server - it stops updating if you close your tab (and stops updating the deck count if the deck is not visible).
- Extension no longer requires a FL reload on install/update.[/li][li]Reworked options page, added changelog viewer.[/li][li]Implemented Chrome Sync for options (with optional override).[/li][li]Made notifications reappear only if there’s a new alert.
- Able to set your own thresholds for notifications.[/li][li]Less notification spam about situations you were already warned about.
Future plans / Known bugs:
Far-future plan is to adapt the extension for WebExtensions platform / Firefox when those release (August or later).
Feedback is very much welcome. If you have an idea (as long as it does not automate anything) or a bug to report, do it here or, even better, on Github issue tracker. Extension is open-source, so if you can improve something yourself and send a patch - it’s great.
Oh, and if you can find/make a better icon for it, it’d be marvelous.
