An automatic logo thumbnail fetcher and changer for vivaldi speedDial
@mib2berlin I think I may have got the problem, In your Bookmark file the first entry is not the speeddial folder but a normal folder and the speeddial folder is down somewhere. I will work on a fix. Also you have thumbnail data inside the bookmark file itself lol
@gwen-dragon It seems it may be the case. I used to never see blocked chat. Now it seems it's blocked for all new users.
Would they had enabled this option?
Windows 10 (x64) | Anniversary Update
Vivaldi Stable · Snapshot
Vivaldi Reset and Back up
@mib2berlin fixed. It was a problem related to multiple speeddials. Now script supports multiple speeddials. Your bookmark file is so large that it took 5 minutes to run even when the thumbnails of a lot of the sites couldnot be found. Thank you very much for sending it.
@zalex108 I couldn't guess. I think it was by accident.

Nice work @gotham13121997 .
This is how I got the script to work in Ubuntu 17.04 for other Ubuntu users.
Python 2.7 and 3.5 are installed but 2.7 is default.
glen@GU17:~$ python -V Python 2.7.13
Installed python3-pip, then installed the python-resize-image module.
sudo apt install python3-pip
pip3 install --user python-resize-image
Cloned git repo.
git clone https://github.com/Gotham13121997/Vivaldi-SpeedDial-Thumbnail-Fetcher.git
Edited the bookmark_path and top_sites_path in thumb_fetcher.py as shown on the github page.
show_thumbnail_mode=Truein the script, also works if you want a preview before changing logo. )
Run the script using python3.
Resulting speedDial images:
@cantankrus I am glad you got it running

I recently created a tool that allows anyone to generate Speed Dial thumbnails, it doesn't automatically replace them but it still makes the process a lot less painful. It currently has two modes:
- using an image file for the icons (You can just look for logos on Google images or https://www.brandsoftheworld.com/)
- automatically fetching the icons using the Clearbit API
I'm also looking into scraping the icons from the site itself.
