Auto-reload the front page



  • I think it would be cool if the front page auto-reloaded every half-hour or so. Obviously there's not enough stuff getting updated for it to refresh every 5 minutes, but it would be a nice little feature if I left my computer for a couple of hours and came back and it was up-to-date.

    Not a big deal though, if people think it's a bad idea don't worry about it.

    Open up the webpage, then in the address bar, paste this:

    javascript:setInterval(function() { app.page.show(); }, 60 * 1000);

    It'll refresh the page every minute until you close the tab. Do something like 30 * 60 * 1000 to make it 30 mins. You can set that as a bookmark too, then you can trigger it whenever you want.

    EDIT: Note that this won't work on the forums, and they live update anyway.
