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());

Hi @saulocastelo off course. I had given the credits to @Frikinux who had provided the solution in a comment on December. I hadn't visited the bug thread in github and even noticed you had created the solution for this. Thank you. It helps a lot to not keep removing and reconfiguring each time that application starts.

@gambas It's strange, try removing the folder ~/.config/whats-app-nativifier-* and reinstalling the package.

@Freso I have no idea how to remove the notification about the update available. If anyone knows how to remove it, please let me know. Don't flag the package as out of date for this reason.

@frealgagu, I resolved my issue via "rm -rf ~/.config/whats-app-nativefier-*"

To minimize the application Ctrl+W can be used, but would it be possible to add a shortcut to close the window without minimizing it (e.g. Ctrl+Q)? I'm not familiar with nativefier, so not sure if this is possible or not.

@benalexau It's strange, the whatsapp-nativefier-inject.js actually works as a workaround injecting a javascript to skip that validation.

benalexau commented on 2019-03-04 06:20

From a freshly built package I get, "WhatsApp works with Google Chrome 36+". Anyone else seen this or know a workaround?
