dev_note_search by Dediggefedde dev_note_search by Dediggefedde


This script is obsolete! please install the next version: Dev_Note_Search2!

dediggefedde.deviantart.com/ar…







About: 


Installable userscript: Search within your Notes!

This is a working script! Install it if you want this!



This userscript adds a search-form in your note-section so you can search for usersnames, subjects, messages and dates.

This is an entry for deviantart-Related's collaboration-contest: namenotrequired.deviantart.com…
sugarpoultry has made a similar visual suggestion some time ago: sugarpoultry.deviantart.com/ar…

You can search via Regex:
Normal words should be contained.
2 different words will pe separated with |: interview|promote will search for notes containing interview or Note.
To search for 2 words within one note use .*: interview.*promote
Search for patterns: "myd+. entry" will match "my 1. entry" "my 2. entry" "my 123. entry"
Not sure about nicknames? make wildcarts: "de.*fedde" will match my name, too!

Site-effect: Browsing pages and filtering will become much faster!


How to use


The first time you open the Note-search, it will have to index your notes.
For 300 notes this may take 10s.
Every time you reopen the note-search it will look for new notes and index them automatically.
However, when deleting a note, you have to reindex (with the button) it yourself.

To search simply insert search-words.

Preferences:


works well with...
firefox + Greasmonkey-addon,
chrome + tampermonkey,

Information for installing can be seen here: fav.me/d4akman

Install: www.deviantart.com/users/outgo…



Updates


Version 1.2:
Bug removed regarding read/unread icon
Performance enhanced, scanning and using should be a few times faster now.
Version 1.4:
Adjustedto new Tampermonkey. It don't like optional function parameters

I click 'index notes' but it only fetches 30 or so (I have over 1000) and I'm not sure what to do?

mmh...
I just checked the script and it seems to work fine for me...
try the "reset to default" button and scan again!
If that doesn't help, can you please open the browser-console (ctrl+shift+j), reload the page and try using the script again? if there's an error it will appear within the browser-console.

Thank you so much for making this! One issue for me that no one else seems to have encountered: absolutely nothing happens when I click the search button. I'm using Firefox + Greasemonkey, things show up fine, doesn't crash, indexing is done, but clicking Search does nothing. I've tried restarting the browser and reinstalling the script. Any idea what could be up?

I still can't get it to work, my notes page looks like yours but I just cant get notes to show up  that I want. Do we have to fill in certain info and all the boxes?

Dediggefedde Featured By Owner Aug 1, 2013
So the script is running and installed correctly? e.g. using tampermonkey for chrome?
I'm sorry that I don't remember if you commented that before, but I couldn't find a previous commet.
When you click on the Notes-Tab at the top, is the search-form showing?

well, surprisingly it also stopped working for me without doing anything...
I will redo the script the following days.

This screen looks totally different as it looks to me (see the screenshot above)^^
Does it appear like this every time you look into your notes?
Do you use something like stylish to change dA's appearance?
Reply
:iconcilatte:
Cilatte Featured By Owner Oct 26, 2013
well--
I had stylish installed but I don't use it 
and no my notes are usually like this
when i go to the search tab it looks like the link i linked to earlier
And then when I go back to the home notes page the "select", "move to", and "delete" button disappear
(I use windows 7 64bit--)

Ah, I see now...
sorry, I failed to check on this within my non-premium-account... didn't expect the ads to destroy the layout.
It should be fixed now in version 1.01. Please update the script to have the correct display.^^

It seems to be,just never gets any notes. I click search and,nothing. It shows the search index on my notes tab,so I have no idea what the problem is. Yes, I had commented before, I thought I installed tampermonkey but did not so it did not work that time.

Ah, I tried to use this, but it seems to crash Firefox when I load the Notes page.. I don't think I have any other scripts that are interfering with it; I do have help plz uber installed but I disabled that and tried again, same result. It will crash while the page is loading, when the upper green searchbar and note menu is there.. Usually show the note search interface before Firefox crashes. I have the search installed to Greasemonkey, tried uninstalling it and reinstalling, still crashes. I have about 900 notes total (inbox + sent), maybe that's a problem? Not sure heh, but I'd really love to use this!

:icondediggefedde:
Dediggefedde Featured By Owner Jun 28, 2013
mmh... The script is only searching within your inbox. I have around 340 notes there and it is still working for me...
maybe you could try to uninstall it, restart firefox, install it again and go to www.deviantart.com/messages/no... afterwards, waiting until the indexing is completed.

Late reply due to down internet heh.. However, I've gone through your steps and it seems firefox just stops responding. I gave it about 10 minutes to see if it'd fix itself, but to no avail. I've only got about 400 notes in the inbox, so I guess that's not the problem hum..

Mmh... Still very strange...
Do you have other scripts affecting that page?
Did you try to open the error-console with ctrl+shift+j to look for occurring errors before going to your note-page?
Did you do anything while the script was browsing your page? maybe opening the same/similar page in another tab or browsing your notes?

Aevix Featured By Owner Jul 2, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
The only other scripts I have up are 'dev_group_list_' and 'dA_clear_corrs', both yours, but neither should be effecting the notes as far as I know.
When I opened the error console, there were only warnings, on all of 'em it says the 'declarations were dropped'. There was nothing in the errors tab. Not sure if this effects anything..
The only other tabs I had open were all dA related, no other of them were notes. I wasn't even able to browse another tab while the notes was up, since it made the browser freeze up.

This probably doesn't help, but I also tested the note search script in Chrome and tampermonkey; the same thing happened.. The page froze. I let it sit for a while, but it just wouldn't clear up and respond. There are no other scripts in Chrome, and there are no errors in the console. I only had the dA notes page up, no other tabs, when I tried to use it.

This shows up well for me, but the page just crashes every time. I use Google Chrome and Tampermonkey.

Dediggefedde Featured By Owner Jun 26, 2013
mmh... I will test it now...
Well, I reinstalled the newest version within tampermonkey and it seems to work fine for me!
All my notes were scanned within 10 seconds (around 340 notes) and the search works fine...
How does the page crash? are you using the latest version of chrome/tampemonkey? Is this script installed inside Tampermonkey?
Reply
:iconchinzapep:
ChinZaPep Featured By Owner Jun 29, 2013  Student Digital Artist
Chrome usually auto-updates itself when I shut it down... There is no update right now, I will retest the script.

Alright, I tested it again. It still doesn't work! I don't know what to do! Chrome is fine, Tampermonkey is fine, the script just doesn't work on Chrome for some reason... maybe I have too many notes... I just don't know how that would corrupt the script... I can't access dA on Firefox for some reason, but I barely even use it... I don't know what's wrong!

:icondediggefedde:
Dediggefedde Featured By Owner Jun 29, 2013
mmh...  you could try to uninstall, restart chrome and install it again to clear its internal stored data...
Also you could open the console using ctrl+shift+j before going to the note-page to see errors within the script...
Usually a freezing of the browser indicates a script running an infinite loop or just taking too long without doing anything, blocking everything else... However, the script should change the display every 10 notes, so it shouldn't really freeze...

The problem with dA and Firefox is also strange^^ I primarily use Firefox (have Opera, chrome and ie installed for testing) and it works fine for me (just muro is slower in Firefox)...

It still didn't work... I found no errors! You might need to revisit the code and figure out why it isn't working...

ChinZaPep Featured By Owner Jul 15, 2013  Student Digital Artist
Oh... I'll consider those suggestions! I already updated to the latest version, I'm not uninstalling it, though. I'll also try the console thing... I'll return to you!

Dediggefedde Featured By Owner Jul 16, 2013
I meant to uninstall the script, not chrome^^
Still it's kind of strange.
It also hard for me to figre something out when it's working for me^^
However, I currently consider rewriting the code so the search results aren't the notes anymore, but links to the notes which are opened in the background then... this would simplify the process... maybe I also rewrite the data aquisition into something more passive...
... although that might result in a completely new script^^
Well, I will look into it on one of the following days... but I doubt this will be finished soon. May take 2 weeks or so...

Oh, I uninstalled it, reinstalled it, and it still didn't work. Now, I was able to at least get the typing cursor over the search field, but it froze up again and that was my cursor for the whole page. It never switched until I closed the tab and uninstalled the script. It must be hard to fix it if you don't know the issue... It would probably help to rewrite the code! But, I think you might need a new script anyways, since this one is obviously a bit messy... Thank you for taking your time to rewrite this script. This is a great idea for deviantART and I would love to see it working soon! :D

Well, when working and active, you should see a search-form when visiting www.deviantart.com/messages/no...
It should take a moment to index your notes, which is shown within the reindex-button as a loading-image.
After that you should be able to search your inbox' notes' content with the search form

yes, I am trying again right now. I installed with tampermonkey. I also read your reaplies to the people and the system need to do a database or something like that. It is normal that takes a lot?? I have like 600 notes (400 in inbox). The rest of the page don't work in anyway. I will leave 5 minutes... for now, seems to respond better than before (it crashed from few secons, now seems is doing something although I have no visual elements to confirmate if it is doing really something)

Thank you, also thanks for you filter deviation script :)

well, yes, it will take some time to crawl through your deviations.
However, hovering over the sandclock at the "Reindex"-Button should give you a progress-text.
For me and 300 Notes in Inbox in Chrome it was done in 30s.
Please note, that it only searches notes in your inbox^^
Maybe you should visit [link] to see the mask with the reindex-button at the start. It will also appear when clicking on the "Notes"-tab

well, it didn't crash now, but I can't interact at all with that tab, no matter the time i wait.

It is not problem the notes in other folder, i want to search in infox precisely for store those notes in folders...

I will try with firefox other day. Since the last time it seeams to have improved the performance because it didn't crash nor slow down the browser. i wonder if it a chromium issue. I will try also chrome and other installation of chromium in order to know what is causing it.

Don't worry, i will keep trying :)

Thanks for your time! and thanks for those scripts! (the filter dev_folders is awesome!)

This is so cool!
Sadly after indexing the notes and searching, it gives me a blank note even though there are 3 pages of (blank) results?

:icondediggefedde:
Dediggefedde Featured By Owner May 17, 2013
A blank note?
I didn't encounter a blank note until now^^
Are there no entries listed and 3 pages shown? or are you meaning that you originally have 3 pages full of notes and now after typing something in the search-input, no entry is shown?
What did you search for? how many notes do you have in total? if you empty the search-form or reload the page, will your notes show up again?
