Sticklet

Author(s):



Sticklet permits to customize the user experience while browsing. It enables the augmentation of the visualization of a web page in an easy and safe way. In other words, while you are browsing a concrete web page, this can be enhanced with information retrieved from other web page or web service.

Greasemonkey allows the customization of the web pages, using small bits of JavaScript (scripts). https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/greasemonkey/
Hundreds of scripts, for a wide variety of popular sites, are already available at http://userscripts.org.
The creation of such scripts is out of the normal user scope and its shareability is hindered because there are some security issues with the usage of Greasemonkey.

Sticklet faces this problem defining and using a Domain Specific Language (DSL). The normal user does not longer write JavaScript scripts but StickletBoxes. Doing in this way, the normal user lost in the expressivity (the customization experience) but the easiness and security is improved.

More information about the Sticklet’s theoretical base at http://dl.acm.org/citation.cfm?id=2460383.2460388

Some examples are available at http://userscripts.org/users/sticklet.

Pre-release version available at Sticklet.

Sticklet operates on top of Greasemonkey, so the installation of Greasemonkey is required in order to make Sticklet work. https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/greasemonkey/
