In the presentation, I refer to a bookmarklet that you can use to introduce jQuery into a web page. Drag these bookmarklets found on this page into the bookmarks toolbar of your browser, in order to use them.
- Firebug Firefox Extension
- jQuery Selector Documentation
- Learning jQuery: jQuerify Bookmarklet
If you wish to use Greasemonkey instead of a bookmarklet, then by all means, please do so. You can use the ability to quickly analyze and inspect a page that Firebug and jQuery affords you, using the results to build a Greasemonkey script, instead of a simple bookmarklet. I only really intended this to be a quick introduction to the subject, so please feel free to explore it more!
More Tips: Here are some more jQuery selectors that you can use on a Digg Post:
$("li.c-bury > div").remove();- Remove all buried comments, but none of the direct replies.
$("div.c-body").show();- Show all comments, even ones that've been buried.
