Hide sidebar to specific user (confluence 6.6)

Hello

I created this user macro to completely hide sidebar (I don't want the sidebar to be seen in any way) in Confluence 6.6.1 

## Macro Name: hide-sidebar
<script>
$(window).load(function() {
$('body#com-atlassian-confluence.theme-default.aui-layout.aui-theme-default div#page div#full-height-container div.ia-splitter div.ia-fixed-sidebar').hide();
$('body#com-atlassian-confluence.theme-default.aui-layout.aui-theme-default div#page div#full-height-container div.ia-splitter div#main.aui-page-panel').css('margin-left', '0');
});
</script>

This is applied to a single Space in "Look & Feel" -> "Sidebar, header & footer" area, using wiki markup.

How can I change this user macro in order to apply it only to a specific user? I mean something like this

if (user-info:username =="Charlie") then

Thank you in advance

Hi Stefano, 

this should do it:

## @noparams

#set( $username = "$req.getRemoteUser()" )
#if($username.equals("Charlie"))
<script>
$(window).load(function() {
$('body#com-atlassian-confluence.theme-default.aui-layout.aui-theme-default div#page div#full-height-container div.ia-splitter div.ia-fixed-sidebar').hide();
$('body#com-atlassian-confluence.theme-default.aui-layout.aui-theme-default div#page div#full-height-container div.ia-splitter div#main.aui-page-panel').css('margin-left', '0');
});
</script>
#else
do-nothing
#end

It works perfectly!

I only deleted the " #else do-nothing" rows because text "do-nothing" can be written into the page.

Thank you very much Thomas! :)
