regex for disabling (or just programmatic disabling on the page)

See original GitHub issue

I just found this extension and it’s great! there’s one thing I miss, though, which is being able to specify a domain to disable on, rather than a page.

I think I’d like a function which sets/toggles whether surfingKeys is active. i.e. when called, it disables everything in surfingkeys except the hotkey to re-enable it. It should be more or less whatever Alt-s is mapping to.

ideally i could then write stuff in the configuration like

if (document.domain is in my whitelist of regexes) {

It’s possible to string together multiple patterns using pipe | as a separator. I figured that out from this gist showing some kind soul’s settings:

Their example:

settings.blacklistPattern = /.**|.**||||;

My settings to make Surfingkeys play nice with KeyPass on login pages:

settings.blacklistPattern = /.*\/access.*|.*login.*|.*signin.*/i;

I’ve also learned that it seems this setting is kept somewhere outside the visible Surfkeys settings and can get messed up if you enter stuff wrong, at which point you’ll need to do a settings.blacklistPattern = undefined;, save it in the Surfkeys settings page, set the patterns again, and save again on the Surfingkeys settings page.

Also don’t forget to escape / characters (ex. /.*\/flights.*/i;).

@lee-tts this works because settings.blacklistPattern is nothing more than a Javascript Regex.
