The Editor

As of Greasemonkey 4.0, due to limits in the WebExtension API surface, only an embedded editor is available.

Greasemonkey's script editor

The script itself is listed in the first tab. Any @require or @resource files will be listed in additional tabs.

Press Ctrl-S to save any changes.

That's It!

Writing scripts for Greasemonkey is not hard. What can get difficult, however, is working with the quirks and limitations that the script runs under; Some things that work perfectly in a normal web page, copied and pasted directly to a user script suddenly fail. It's important to know how the environment the scripts run in works.
