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='https://support.google.com/chrome/answer/95414']") ), NICE/GREAT/GOOD!

Another way to do the same in 2 lines: document.querySelector("a[href='https://support.google.com/chrome/answer/95414']") && navigator.serviceWorker.getRegistration().then(r => r.unregister() && document.location.reload());

Seems not to work now and asks to upgrade to Chrome 49.

I have the same problem as @sispus (on kde too) but on true Arch

devl_archer commented on 2020-05-04 13:15

would be great as mentioned by @bakgwailo to add spellcheck support in the build:

diff --git a/PKGBUILD b/PKGBUILD
index 59b8809..b8c7589 100644
--- a/PKGBUILD
+++ b/PKGBUILD
@@ -33,6 +33,7 @@ build() {
     --verbose \
     --single-instance \
     --tray \
+    --browserwindow-options '{ "webPreferences": { "spellcheck": true } }' \
     "https://web.${pkgname%-nativefier}.com"
 }

Also is there a way to autom. enable the local dictionaries? By default for me only en_US was listed in ~/.config/whatsapp-nativefier-d40211/Preferences?

bakgwailo commented on 2020-04-30 02:32

Any chance we could get:

--browserwindow-options '{ "webPreferences": { "spellcheck": true } }' \

added into the package build? It enables spell checking now that it is supported in electron.

Same thing as @willspoke: there is no tray icon for whatsapp. Any suggestion?

sispus commented on 2020-04-08 10:26

In manjaro kde no notification is sent. also notifications configuration window is not listing it among the applications. Notification sound works. I have had libindicator-gtk3 already, for another application.

in cinnamon you need to go to options, general and activate indicators compatibility. And yes there is no notifications.

XTREEMRAGE commented on 2020-03-28 18:44

@xavery: Do you also have something for the notifications, it doesn't show up (the notification) if I get a message. For my xfce desktop I use the following: xfce4-notifyd Notification service.
