Search - "chrome webstore"
My last episode of Game of Thrones got ruined because of spoilers on social media 🙈 So to ensure that I don't get any spoilers for the GoT finale, I created a small chrome extension which automatically blurs out any GoT presence or prospective spoiler from websites I visit.
So for all those who are worried about the spoilers, can give it a try over here: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/...
Might be a bit buggy here and there so do share any feedback you have. 👍🏼 #WeekdayHackathons13
The inofficial devRant Toolbox for Firefox has been approved by Mozilla and is now available in the public Mozilla AddOn section:
It adds extended controls, themes (black, solarized, comic), dual frame layout and some more additional features.
A chrome version is also available:
A chrome extension I've stumbled upon that some of you might like - Stack search!
While searching stuff on Google all links to stackoverflow will say whether there's a marked right answer and it's score..
And it's even open source!
I like it
Somebody asked on how to get started on Full Stack web application development.
This is how I got started.
Client side Web Application Development:
• Start with basic HTML, CSS and JS, JSON. For quick learning, see W3Schools for these topic or YouTube it.
• Get a local web server. "200 OK!" webserver chrome extension is a good start. (https://chrome.google.com/webstore/...)
• Learn Chrome Dev Tools to debug the pages. YouTube it.
• Get a good IDE. I am very happy with VSCode. You can use it for very serious WebApps.
• Install node.js. Learn NPM package manager. Learn basic node commands.
• Learn complexity of JS file referencing, JS modules in browser. Just learn, don't use it yet, to understand the benefits of code bundlers.
• Learn Webpack code bundler.
• Learn how to make you simple site much faster and using in Mobile using "Progressive Web Apps".
• Now learn to make modular UIs. I love React. Focus on getting the UI code modulear. Create Single Page sites. (You are not there yet to create a Web App) “Create-React-App” started kit is a good starting point.
• Learn to create multi-page site using React-router.
• Learn application state management using Redux.
• Learn to create application decision engine using Redux-Saga.
Practice and master each stage.
Along above, learn git / GitHub (to learn from others code), find good web resources like Medium / Smashing magazine, good YouTube channels etc. I subscribed to some popular Udemy courses too.
Server side Web development:
:) First learn client side Web Application development. Server side learning is another story.3
I should not have looked at this really interesting Chrome extension.
It tries to prevent phishing links from working by adding attributes to change the behaviour of the browser.
HOW DOES THIS WORK?
Just one simple line:
$('[target="_blank"]').attr("rel", "noopener noreferrer");
But why is this extension so bloated?
It loads the full jQuery library. For an attribute change!
I'd like to refer to this site for further investigations: http://youmightnotneedjquery.com//...
What the hell.. Stylish got removed from the Chrome web store?
Yesterday I submitted my chrome extension to the chrome web store.
Today it got accepted!
I found a chrome addon that allows me to search webpages with regex. I've had it for a full minute and I already love it.
So, I've been developing a little Chrome Extention for people who usually searches quite a lot on Wiki and Wiktionary.
I mainly developed it for my own laziness to open a new tab and search for a term.
What it does is, when you select a word and triggers the extension, it will show a little dialog with Wikipedia and Wiktionary definitions for the selection.
If anyone is curious or interested in the idea, would be helpful to receive some feedback.
(sorry for the logo on the image, it's the only one that I have here, at the moment.)
Fellow dark theme lovers, here's a chrome plugin to make every website have a dark theme: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/...5
The beta version of the new DEVRANT TOOLBOX is available now.
Its an unofficial web extension for Chrome and Firefox.
Chrome Web Store:
The certifaction process takes a long time, therefore I provided a direct download for the xpi file (for side loading).
Additional features: DUAL FRAME MODE (feeds left, rants right), themes (black, mono, darkgray, darkblue, comic, solarized), scrollbar plugin (perfect scrollbar, FF only), extended controls, fixed header, sorted userprofiles (by votes), autoreload (recent feed, 180 sec), highlighting new rants (recent feed), personal filter, image preview (mouseover), keyboard shortcuts, timestamps for rants, compact mode, colored notifs with clickable usernames, weekly rant.
I tested the extension with Windows Browsers only.
It would be great to get a feedback how it works with other systems!
Have fun with the toolbox.7
Which will block browser coin miners on Chrome for now. Other ad/script blockers might work (though not always guaranteed).
Currently, these miners don't limit their CPU usage (and neither does the browser) so it's not great for your PC use.
If implemented correctly, like only using for a few seconds or for captchas/link shorteners (as suggested on the Coin Hive site), this could be a nice alternative to ads. But there is a guarantee that many will start using this unethically and not even tell users, nevermind that they'll do it for the entire session of the site.
Add Service Workers to the mix and it's a bag of trouble.12
We had a issue with a webstore that was only affecting users on Windows: one button didn't do anything.
The colleague that was working on the ticket was running Arch, and for him it was working as expected. He reported that the bug couldn't be replicated on Chromium, Firefox or qutebrowser. But our designer, who was running Windows 10, commented that it wasn't working for her in either Chrome or Firefox.
Some more conflicting reports later a colleague using Windows managed to fix it. It was caused by querying the button elements by id selector instead or a class selector. There was multple buttons, one for each product row.
I guess there just are platform differences that aren't specific to browser but instead the OS, that could have caused it7
Heys guys, so I made this little Chrome extension that shows you news feed from blogs and websites (of your choice) in your new tab page. Ya know, so you don't have to go to any specific website or app or anything. So, give it a spin maybe?
Its called Blink: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/...
PS: Sorry if you think this is spam, just wanted to share it.. Its free and open source..2
I just published my second chrome extension: mediumship! It lets you read any story on Medium. Feel free to try it out at https://chrome.google.com/webstore/...
Not a rant..
I recently made a chrome extension to manage tabs...
Made it for myself first but I know all of us have this problem of having tabs to the extent that even the favicons become invisible.
Feedback and suggestions are welcome guys!!
Sick of ads in your Facebook feed? So was I....
If you use Chrome, you're welcome :)
Just read the news of chrome webstore shutting down. No new apps, from March 31 (if i'm not mistaken), will be accepted by the webstore. As a frequent user and a developer, it's pretty saddening news. I published a chrome app about 3 months ago and was hoping that large number of people will use it, i don't see that happening now lol! Check it out here if y'all are interested. https://chrome.google.com/webstore/...2
