NW MLS Matrix Sanity Extension

Description from extension meta

Content scripts to bring sanity into the NW MLS Matrix UI. Crappy extension to make the webapp a little less crappy.

Description from store Simple content scripts to bring sanity into the NW MLS Matrix UI. Mean to be used use with the single-line display which is the default mode the UI is loaded in. This extension puts the map and details onto the same page so you don't have to keep navigating to look at all the houses. It's a pretty sad set of scripts that just cleave into NW MLS Matrix's javascript to force the functionality. Heck, the way it makes the detail view work is it loads Matrix in an iframe and simulates a set of mouse clicks until it finds the page...and then it proceeds to delete all the UI HTML except for the div with the info. This is because NW MLS Matrix uses cookies + serialized server side aspx state to handle display which means you can't actually construct a URL that jumps to the wanted view easily. It certainly doesn't offer a way to get the detail div w/o the navigation ui either. So yeah, crappy extension with crappy icon to make a crappy legacy business UI slightly less crappy. Note: this is a hack mostly for my own use! if it doesn't work for you, feel free to debug it yourself and send patches. https://github.com/awong-dev/nwmlsmatrixsanity.git Have fun!

  • (2016-03-04) Ryan R.: Sounds great, but doesn't seem to do anything. I'm mostly leaving a review in hopes that you'll see it and do a little updating (or add some screen shots, user guide, anything). I've got 0% dev experience, so "debugging" this isn't really in my skill set, I'm just hoping for plug-and-play, since anything that makes Matrix feel less 2005 would be awesome.
