GlimmerBlocker is no longer maintained and should no longer be used as web sites have migrated from using plain http to using https (i.e. encrypted) which prohibits modification by a proxy unless you resort to install custom SSL certiticates on the client.
You should use a browser extension instead.
It was made as a hobby project during 2007-2008 by Peter Speck. It features both a custom http server and http client and a Mac OS X control panel.
How the transformation works:
The content is stored in the global t object. See the Object Reference for all the utilities and information that GlimmerBlocker provides.
Simple subsitution of contents:
t = t.replace(/documentation/, "pure void");
A convenience method is provided for this, so the above code can be reduced to:
replace(/documentation/, "pure void");
Some sites don't provide a desciptive <title> but uses the company name for all pages. This can be fixed by extracting a resonable name from the html body and updating the <title> using the convenience function gb.setDocumentTitle():
var m = t.match(/<h1><span id="item_name">(.+?)<\/span><\/h1>/i); if (m) gb.setDocumentTitle(m);
