Safari Extension - "Safari can't use javascript for this action"


I don't know much about coding, so sorry if this is something stupid!

I currently have a Pinterest bookmarklet in my bookmarks bar which runs this code when clicked:


I want to move it to the toolbar, so I have made an extension with the code:

<!DOCTYPE html>
	<title>Pin It!</title>
	<script type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8">

function performCommand(event)
    if (event.command === "pinit") {

    var rUrl = "javascript:void((function(d)%7Bvar%20e=d.createElement('script');e.setAttribute('type','text/javascript');e.setAttribute('charset','UTF-8');e.setAttribute('src','//assets.pinterest.com/js/pinmarklet.js?r='+Math.random()*99999999);d.body.appendChild(e)%7D)(document));";
    safari.application.activeBrowserWindow.activeTab.url = rUrl;       

safari.application.addEventListener("command", performCommand, true);


The bookmarklet works fine when clicked, but the extension gives the error "Safari can't use javascript for this action". Anyone know what's wrong?
