webExt-Noscript version and regular expressions/wildcards?

Post by bsdharry » Sun Mar 01, 2020 4:17 pm

Hello and thanks a lot for the ongoing NoScript development.
Recently I changed from FF52 to Waterfox current - the unavoidable goodbye for the legacy NoScript addon.
I had a semi-sophisticated autoadmin dealing with whitelists, which contained something like this:
regex https?://\\w{12,20}\\.cloudfront.net|https?://www-\\d+\\.ibm\\.com|https?://www\\d*\\.hp\\.com
I can't remember where I found any documentation about no-script regex supprt.
Again, I cannot find anything about regex for webExt-NoScript.

Quick experiments with exporting, altering noscript_data.txt (json), and re-importing tells me there is no regex support.

Is there any other kind of wildcard definition?
What if I want to allow "sub1.my.tld", "sub2.my.tld", "subN.sub1.my.tld" but _not_ "my.tld"?

Thanks for any help,
-harry
Btw. I like the new UI and think this much less sacring for regular users!

NoScript Classic doesn't support regex whitelist either. Where were you entering those regex?

Currently you would have to manually enter "sub1.my.tld" and "sub2.my.tld" in NoScript Options > Per-site Permissions.
*Always* check the changelogs BEFORE updating that important software!
