Native GM_xmlhttpRequest support in jQuery Ajax Requests - Working! (need testers)

I recently made a post about a javascript library I am developing called jMod

While working on it, I remembered how much I absolutely HATE not being able to reliably use jQuery for cross-origin requests. Instead, I am usually forced to use GM_xmlhttpRequest which just makes me sad.

So I added a new feature to jMod:

jMod.jQueryExtensions.addCrossDomainSupport(jQuery);

Calling this will replace the default jQuery data transmission method with a custom one using GM_xmlhttpRequest. This affects all ajax requests made by jQuery!

Look at this example

jMod.jQueryExtensions.addCrossDomainSupport($);

// Test $.ajax()
console.log('Test $.ajax("http://google.com")');
$.ajax({
        url: 'http://google.com',
        contentType: 'text/plain',
        type: 'GET',
        dataType: 'html'
    })
    .done(function() {
        console.log("$.ajax() success");
    })
    .fail(function() {
        console.log("$.ajax() error");
    });

// Test $(element).load()
console.log('Test $(element).load("http://google.com #hplogo")');
var tmpDiv = document.createElement('div');
tmpDiv.id = 'tmpDiv';
document.body.appendChild(tmpDiv);

$('#tmpDiv').load('http://google.com #hplogo', function(responseText, textStatus, jqXHR){
    console.log('$(element).load() ' + textStatus);
});

The second test loads the remote page's content into the new div element without having to set any special flags. You dont have to worry about cross-origin errors ever again! You hear that Same-origin policy?! I DO WHAT I WANT!!

The resulting log can be at the bottom of this post (Firefox and Chrome).

Right now I just need some help testing the new feature. I've edited so many of my browser's permission settings, I cant be sure this will work for other users (but I am pretty positive it will). So can any of ya'll help me test it? I will even write the script for you :D

  • Haven't tested it but here's a suggestion: you can add new user profiles into Chrome and Firefox to test the script in a default environment.
