Tampermonkey userscript prevents pages from loading

+2
−0

I am currently making a userscript to interpret the APL programming language in a Stackexchange chat window. This is the code I have come up with:

// ==UserScript==
// @name     APL chat
// @version  2
// @grant    GM_xmlhttpRequest
// @grant    GM_listValues
// @match    https://chat.stackexchange.com/*
// @run-at   document-start
// @require  https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/npm/[email protected]/lib/apl.min.js
// ==/UserScript==

// thanks to @cvzi for making it work correctly!

var MutationObserver = window.MutationObserver || window.WebKitMutationObserver;

var observer = new MutationObserver(function(mutations, observer) {
    // fired when a mutation occurs
    console.log(mutations, observer);
    let codes = document.getElementsByTagName("code");
        for (let elem of codes) {
            if(elem.innerText && !('interpreted' in elem.dataset) && elem.innerText[0] == '⋄') {
                elem.dataset.interpreted = true;  // see https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Learn/HTML/Howto/Use_data_attributes#JavaScript_access
                let result = ''
                let color = 'red'
                // Catch apl error and show it in orange color
                try {
                    result = apl(elem.innerText).toString()
                } catch(e) {
                    result = e.toString()
                    color = 'orange'
                }
                let tmp = document.createElement("div");
                tmp.innerHTML = "<pre style=\"color:"+color+"\">"+result.replace("\n","<br>")+"</pre>";
                let parent = elem.parentElement;
                parent.appendChild(tmp.firstChild);
                //console.log(result);
            }
        }
});

window.addEventListener('DOMContentLoaded', (event) => {
    alert = function() {}; // Prevents ⎕← and ⍞← from trggering alerts
    window.alert = function(){};
      observer.observe(document, {
      subtree: true,
    ChildList:true,
      attributes: true
    });

});

When a code block is written to the body with a character in it, it should be executed and displayed in red, underneath the code.

The apl() function takes a single string, and interprets in in the APL language, and it is imported from the @require statement, using ngn's javascript APL interpreter. After ngn's confirmation, I can say that it does not interfere with any globals.

It works perfectly on firefox(Greasemonkey), but on Chrome's Tampermonkey, any chat.stackexchange.com page I visit never stops loading. It gets stuck at this point:

And these are the console errors:

I have my suspicions on the MutationObserver and the @grant, but I'm not sure what exactly is causing this issue. It could be something else.

What is the correct fix for this problem?

The problem here was resolved by moving the @require script inside the DOMContentLoaded listener like in this link.

I think the main problem was that the interpreter was causing conflicts, since it was getting loaded before the page loaded. I'd appreciate it if someone could find a way to make this work with @require in it though.
