[Windows] Vivaldi Mod Manager



  • Any chance on getting a version that doesn't require .NET? I'd love to use this tool but won't be installing .NET just for it.



  • @Koolio good idea. Anyway, I can't say when new version will become available. As I said before, development will be resumed in next year.



  • @Jack9 windows 10 already have proper .Net version. Version without net will require full rewrite. Maybe some other developer will create native version, but I'll not.





  • @NeoCortex Only around 50% of Windows users are on Windows 10.



  • @Jack9 doesn't take much to install .net 4.5 and it will be used for other things anyway, so sooner or later also Win7/8 users should adapt to it. I'm still on Win7 myself, so I had to update it.



  • @iAN-CooG There's been nothing that I've ever needed, other than this tool, that has needed .NET 4.5 and, I won't use anything while I"m still on Win7 that does. Adding any version of .NET adds a lot of bloat.



  • @Jack9 it's your choice, but there is no other similar tool and the author doesn't know to do it in other ways.
    I've done something similar myself but in Python, and it's not as user friendly, see my signature.
    I never had any use of java on my PC, but one single tool forced me to install it as there was no alternative.
    Make your choice

    1. adapt to the necessity
    2. make the tool yourself as you want it to be
    3. live without it


  • @iAN-CooG Yes, I'll live fine without it. With any other tool I've ever needed that's either required installing other software or a fee, there's been a suitable alternative. Guess not this time.

    Well, other software comes often bundled with the necessary stuff and installs it automatically - like c or .net runtimes etc.
    You can't really expect from a single programmer or scripter (who can be rightly quite proud of the software because it works really well) that he resolves all dependencies, especially those which are so easy to meet by the user. It is a trade off between the time he wants to or can invest into his program and ease of use - especially for a tool that is basically a convenience tool, because there is always the manual way.

    Additionally I personally expect that there might be some dependencies for a relatively complicated work like that, that way I can be pleasantly surprised if the author has taken care of it for me 😉

    Hi,
    I would like to understand your program's function.

    Does apply the Js / Css, or just BckUp / Restore them to a folder?

    I did not see any Apply button and there's no WiKi yet.

    Thank you.



  • Thanks for this app. How can I tell which version I am running? Help/About doesn't specify.



  • @rafiki you have to check the VivaldiModManager.exe properties/details.
    V0.2.5.0 is the last version anyway.



  • @Zalex108 The mods are applied/disabled live, while you tick/untick them.
    You can even have multiple vivaldi versions installed, and the mods are applied on the version(s) ticked on the right side panel.
    When you update Vivaldi you have to use the Migration tool menu, to copy/move the mods from the older version to the newer one.



  • @iAN-CooG Thanks. Found it. Up to date then.

    Thanks.

    I will give it another try.
    Firsts tests didn't work despite added the installations to the App and went to manual adding but same result.

    Something wrong on my settings or applies.
    I'll check again on a test profile before.

    Thank you.
