Hey guys,

I created the original fix.

And now I share another way to use whatsapp web on nativefier. No code injection required.

Pressing ctrl+shift+i (on Linux) and the Devtools window will open. Then click on Application -> Service Workers And check the option Bypass for network.

Now press ctrl+r to reload. And ctrl+shift+i to close the Devtools.

Whenever you open your whatsapp the problem will occur, but since the Bypass for network option has already been enabled, you only need to press ctrl+shift+i (open devtools), ctrl+r (reload), ctrl+shift+i (close devtools)

@frealgagu, thanks for your work. This package was in my list as one of required apps to be installed after install Arch. I saw your last update ( document.querySelector("a[href='']") ), NICE/GREAT/GOOD!

Another way to do the same in 2 lines: document.querySelector("a[href='']") && navigator.serviceWorker.getRegistration().then(r => r.unregister() && document.location.reload());

I've made some changes in whatsapp-nativefier-inject.js, could you test using the latest version of nodejs-nativefier?

Not working anymore

For launching whatsapp-nativefier only in tray (without window) I need after each update to use this old trick: Editing /opt/whatsapp-nativefier/resources/app/nativefier.json line "tray": true, to "tray": "start-in-tray", It's very useful when launching whatsapp-nativefier at logging. It could be pinned. Neither whatsapp-nativefier --start-in-tray neither whatsapp-nativefier --tray=start-in-tray are working.

Thanks, I've removed the conflicting line in PKGBUILD, please let me know how it works.

Nowaker commented on 2021-09-30 19:02

Update: this PKGBUILD has a line that breaks its injection code. Fix is in Whoever builds it manually should get rid of this line:

  sed -i -e "/loglevel/d" "${srcdir}/${_folder}/resources/app/lib/preload.js"

Attention folks that get the error about Chrome being too old. Here's a dirty but 100% working workaround:

EDIT: I just realized the oneliner from @saulocastelo does exactly the same my 10 step guide does... So never mind. That said, I reported my findings to Nativefier as this appears to be a problem with Nativefier, not our JS inject code.

@HMlendea have you tried the saulocastelo approach?

lucasrizzini commented on 2021-09-28 00:19

@vikon, the answer for this issue is pinned here. Check saulocastelo's comment.
