Minimal One True Fan

I am a BIG fan of One True Fan. Maybe even “the” one true fan of One True Fan. ; )


I’ve noticed recently that I have been hiding the One True Fan bar a lot for various reasons. I really love the bar but I don’t always want to see it, but at the same time I always want it to be there. So… I built a Kynetx app that solves my problem and maybe others will find it useful also.

Minimal One True Fan is a Chrome and Firefox Extension that

  1. looks for the One True Fan bar on the page
  2. hides the bar
  3. takes the checked in status button and places it in the bottom left corner of the page
  4. clicking on the status button will bring the bar back

See the Minimal One True Fan Kynetx app and the One True Fan extensions in action!

Update 01/04/2011

Updated the app to also show the avatar of the current One True Fan of the current site because who doesn’t love to see if they are the One True Fan? : D

  1. Wow Mike! This is SO RAD!!! Beautifully done!

    If this is what you can put together on your own, I can’t imagine the awesome things you are going to be able to build with our upcoming API, haha.

    I honestly can’t wait until the entire OneTrueFan team is off of holiday so I can show it off to everyone! Drop me a line if you need anything at all!

  2. @Tilly, You guys have an API in the works?!! AWESOME!!! Can’t wait! This is going to be great! I’m glad you like what I did and I hope the rest of the team enjoys it also. Have a great new year!

  3. Oh, sweet baby Jeebus, that’s freakin’ dope.

    We’re planning on adding support for user-controlled auto-hide in the new year and this looks like a great version to draft off of. Please don’t hate us if we copy a lot of this functionality?

    Also, if you’re interested in a quick update, we’ve found that fading out to 100% transparency (and then hiding) is significantly less distracting that sliding the bar off the the screen.

    Lastly, send me an email at [redacted] so that we can stay in touch more directly.

    Thanks again for this. Awesome stuff.

  4. Oh Oh! What an awesome surprise! I just noticed you updated your extension! I dig how the OneTrueFan of the site hangs out right there on the left side with the check-in box, super clever!

    Keep up the awesome work, and thank you for helping us make OneTrueFan rock socks!
