Lightsout and Syntax Highlighting

Hello!

I am releasing a javascript bookmarklet that allows you to select an element of any web page and put the rest of the page behind a screen.

To use it, simply drag the link below to your bookmarks bar and then click the bookmark when you want to use it. After it loads, you can then select the element of the page you want to focus, indicated by the blue border. You can also press 'A' to attempt to autoselect a flash object, while avoiding ads.

Lightsout

If you can't get the bookmarklet to load by dragging the link above to your bookmarks, copy and paste the following code into a new bookmark:

javascript: (function () { var lightsoutloading = document.createElement('div');lightsoutloading.id='SBRLlightsoutloadingmessagecontainer'; lightsoutloading.innerHTML = '<div id=\'SBRLlightsoutloadingmessage\' style=\'width:300px;height:auto;position:fixed;top:0;left:0;background:rgba(200, 200, 200, 0.8);border-radius:5px;z-index:2147483647;transition:all 0.5s;margin:10px;padding:10px;border:none;opacity:1.0;text-transform:none;min-height:0;min-width:0;font-faamily:sans-serif;bottom:auto;right:auto;font-size:12px;text-indent:0;line-height:normal;color: black;text-decoration:none;clip:auto;font-style:normal;font-variant:normal;font-weight:normal;max-height:none;max-width:none;direction:ltr;word-spacing:normal;visibility:visible;text-shadow:none;\'>Loading lightsout...</div>'; document.body.appendChild(lightsoutloading); var jsCode = document.createElement('script');jsCode.setAttribute('src', 'https://starbeamrainbowlabs.com/bookmarklets/lightsout/lightsout.js');document.body.appendChild(jsCode);}()););

Since this is a javascript bookmarklet, there are probably websites that this doesn't work with. If you stumble across one of these websites, leave a comment below and I will look into it.

I am also trialing a new syntax highlighter along with this post! It is possible that the site may not work as expected during this trial period.

Edit: Testing complete! This blog now has code syntax highlighting enabled thanks to PrismJS.
