Hackasaurus.org has outdated branding, and the goggles installation there is a different server and I think is broken. Time for a crafty redirect to goggles.webmaker.org We'll have to decide if we want to redirect all published remixes into the MakeAPI but I have a feeling that it's arduous and maybe not worth it.
Yeah, I can't imagine migrating all published remixes into the MakeAPI to be a worthy endeavour.

No, not worth it. Do we have access to hackasaurus, though, so we can redirect? Also - still looking for a solution for folks that have this in their bookmarks bar and who might try and use it. Old bookmarklet no longer works due to mixed content.
Jbuck, yes I'd like to add that redirect notice to the old goggles as mentioned here.
Hey guys, Just noticing we're still getting a wee bit of media confusion about our offerings here and there re: hackasaurus, (and Google Goggles? where'd they get that name from!?) FYI (8th para): http://www.commonsensemedia.org/educators/blog/how-to-teach-coding-in-your-classroom-even-if-you%E2%80%99re-a-novice-yourself I'm all for this redirect.
I'd much rather hijack the code so that it doesn't fire up goggles, but fires up JS that effects a modal going "you're using an old version of the goggles! hackasaurus.org is now goggles.webmaker.org, get your new goggles over at etc. etc" rather than keep hackasaurus.org alive and have two places that need to stay in sync, when really we only have one file to serve.
Suggesting that we first redirect hackasaurus.org as soon as possible and figure out the code updates as needed. We just had a big maker party in Bhopal and they all used hackasaurus.org - https://etherpad.mozilla.org/GGITM-webmaker-project :Pomax - your idea seems good. Would it be possible to put an image with the new Goggles bookmarklet in that modal notification, that way they can just reinstall the new Goggles right on the spot by dragging the image bookmarklet into their toolbar without having to go to another page and install it there?
OK, Pomax. If that's in scope then, could you take this on?

should be doable.
Created attachment 820460 [details] [review] https://github.com/mozilla/goggles.webmaker.org/pull/55 This is a dropin replacement for the webxray.hackasaurus.org/webxray.js file that people using the old bookmarklet will get. Rather than the old xray goggles, they will get an overlay notice that looks like this: https://monkeymagic.mywebmaker.org/thimble/test-redirector
if this looks good, I can request that hackasaurus.org redirects to goggles.webmaker.org instead, except for webxray.hackasauraus.org, which we will give a route so that webxray.hackasaurus.org/webxray.js points to this migration js file instead.
