Guides / Userscripts

This page has not been reviewed by our documentation team (more info).

Userscripts run in a users web browser and make on-the-fly local changes to specific web pages. In MusicBrainz they are generally used to change the display of pages, facilitating editing.

These scripts and tools are user-made, and are not officially supported by MetaBrainz.

Standalone resources

For standalone/non-script tools and resources see External Resources.

Userscript manager

To run userscripts, you need to install an in-browser userscript manager, and then install the script.

Chrome/Chromium can run userscripts without installing a userscript manager extension, however many userscripts will not work properly. It is recommended that you install a userscript manager.

Writing userscripts

If you want to write your own userscript for MusicBrainz (or other websites), you can learn a lot from existing examples and the documentation of the userscript extensions:

You can use Kellnerd's userscript-bundler as a starting point for a semi-automated setup to build userscripts from JavaScript modules.

Stylus themes

Themes change how webpages look, for instance changing colours, or moving buttons and text. Themes can make very small changes, or change a page completely.

To use themes you have to install Stylus or a similar browser extension.

Troubleshooting

A number of popular userscripts for MusicBrainz no longer work on Firefox 57+ and Greasemonkey 4+. See Greasemonkey#GreaseMonkey 4 incompatibility. Use Violentmonkey or Tampermonkey on Firefox instead.
