  • (2019-04-29, v:1.0) Cameron Steel: HTTPS support
    The script still pulls from http://api.thingspeak.com, which now fully supports HTTPS. Simply adding the 's' in the script worked for me.
  • (2015-05-07, v:1.0) David Marsh: mouse over text
    Can the mouse over text show the current colour name instead of the text "Current color"?
  • (2014-12-15, v:0.7) Carl Monk: "Hack" for new colours
    Locate C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Extensions In one of the randomly named folders you'll find the folder "0.7_0" containing PNG files of the colours. Copy one of the colour files, rename it "pink.png", then edit it in your favourite paint package to change the colour. (RGB is #ff69b44 or 255,105,180) Copy and rename "warmwhite.png" to "oldlace.png" for the complete set. The Developer sensible just checks for the presence of a PNG file of the requested colour name.

    Could you please add Pink and oldlace. Current colour list can be found here - http://www.cheerlights.com/control-cheerlights
  • (2014-11-07, v:0.7) New Colors
    Can you add oldlace (which is the same color as warmwhite) and pink to the CheerLights Extension?
