AutoHotKey Script for patching your mods into Vivaldi



  • Vivaldi Modding Community,

    I have spent considerable time working on a method to consistently patch mods into Vivaldi regardless of whether the application has been recently updated or not. @Christoph142 has posted a script to patch mods using Windows batch language, but I was looking for a script that would patch the mods regardless of whether vivaldi was updated recently or not and also one that could be easily made into a self-contained executable.

    I have had some experience with the automation scripting language that AutoHotKey utilizes and would like to share the results with the Vivaldi community:

    If only there was a command line method to download and install a Vivaldi update, than this could be fully automated... Still waiting on @Gwen-Dragon to get that code from the Vivaldi devs... :smile:

    This AutoHotKey script assumes that the Vivaldi Application directory is located here:
    C:\Program Files\Vivaldi\Application and the mod directory is located here:
    C:\Program Files\Vivaldi\ModFolder\vivaldi but it also has an option for manual input for both of these directories as well as changing these default directory assumptions in the first section of the code.

    It is very important that your mod folder imitates the same directory structure as the Vivaldi installation.

    For example:

    C:\Program Files\Vivaldi\ModFolder\vivaldi
    C:\Program Files\Vivaldi\ModFolder\vivaldi\browser.html
    C:\Program Files\Vivaldi\ModFolder\vivaldi\custom.js
    C:\Program Files\Vivaldi\ModFolder\vivaldi\resources
    C:\Program Files\Vivaldi\ModFolder\vivaldi\style\custom.css

    So without further ado... here is the AutoHotKey code:

    You will obviously need to download AutoHotKey in order to run it or convert it to a self-contained executable file for your usage. AutoHotKey can be downloaded here.

    Enjoy! :smiley:
