Breaks out of the Greasemonkey / Google Chrome user script sandbox and runs the code in the page scope instead, free of sandbox gotchas and deprived of all privileged API:s.
// This block of code injects our source in the content scope and then calls the
// passed callback there. The whole script runs in both GM and page content, but
// since we have no other code that does anything, the Greasemonkey sandbox does
// nothing at all when it has spawned the page script, which gets to use jQuery.
// (jQuery unfortunately degrades much when run in Mozilla's javascript sandbox)
(function(run_me_in_page_scope) {
if ('undefined' == typeof __RUNS_IN_PAGE_SCOPE__) { // unsandbox, please!
var src = arguments.callee.caller.toString(),
script = document.createElement('script');
script.setAttribute("type", "application/javascript");
script.innerHTML = "const __RUNS_IN_PAGE_SCOPE__ = true;\n(" + src + ')();';
document.documentElement.appendChild(script);
document.documentElement.removeChild(script);
} else { // unsandboxed -- here we go!
run_me_in_page_scope();
}
})(init); // replace this with your preferred init function
function init() {
// this only runs in the context of the page, without Mozilla sandbox gotchas!
