UPDATE: The code has been modified to download the remote css to a local file and use ruby sass compiler to verify there is no malicious code in the remote css. This will error if the code has been modified to include anything malicious (i.e. script or img tags etc.) It's also been refactored to use the local file inside the js injection, it makes sure it's safe first in the very unlikely event the local file somehow differs from the remote css. The chances of this happening are remote, but this should suffice for safety.
- save this script wherever you keep your ruby scripts for example
- change the URL in the
remote_repovariable in ruby script to use YOUR repo. The rawgit.com file is created when you fork the repo.
- For non-MacOS, find where the slack files are and replace line 20 to point to correct path, thanks simbalinux
so you would change line 20 for ubuntu like this
@file_target = '/usr/lib/slack/resources/app.asar.unpacked/src/static/'
- make script executable
sudo chmod +x nightslack
- symlink to a PATH load for example:
ln -s /Users/lacostenycoder/dev/ruby/nightslack.rb /usr/local/bin/nightslack
- Or if you prefer just drop the
.rbfrom the filename and move it directly to
How to use this
From a terminal simply type
nightslack to start desktop app in night-mode.
To toggle back to day mode, simpley run
nightslack -d to pass the day mode option.
This will start or restart a running slack desktop in the desired mode!
Keeping your forked repo up to date
- To update styles, sync your forked repo with upstream but be sure to inspect the css to insure it doesn't contain js code injeciton.
