  • Product Hunt bookmarklet update

    I posted a bookmarklet for quickly opening Product Hunt product links in the same browser tab in June. It was based on a specific CSS selector for finding the "Get It" link, and Product Hunt has since changed the markup, breaking the bookmarklet.…

  • Quickie bookmarklet for Product Hunt

    I love Product Hunt, and find new things there daily. I just get annoyed that when I open a bunch of products in tabs, each tab then creates a new tab when you try to go to the product's homepage.…

  • Bookmarklet: Clean highlighted code for copying

    I made a little bookmarklet this morning for cleaning up highlighted code blocks in web pages for copying into my notes. You just click it on any web page and all pre>code` blocks and `table.highlight elements will be turned into plain text.…

  • Similarity bookmarklet update

    I've updated the Similarity bookmarklet that I posted yesterday. If you missed it, it's a bookmarklet for desktop browsers that lets you quickly gather links in "Top X resources for..." type posts. It works on Product Hunt collections, "related posts" boxes, etc. By determining common characteristics of links, it does a pretty good job of only selecting links of the same type as you clicked.…

  • Grab sibling links with the Similarity bookmarklet

    How many times have you visited a post with a list of resources, e.g. "15 resources for free stock photos," and wished you could just grab them all at once? I don't know about you, but it happens to me frequently.…

  • Answered: save your StackExchange discoveries

    I've been sick and out of commission this week, but I have a couple of finished projects to share as I find the energy. This first one is called "Answered," a bookmarklet for saving StackExchange answers to your favorite note/organization app.…

  • A Spillo bookmarklet

    I've spent my free time the last few days playing with √úbersicht, but I found enough time to try out Spillo. It's a new Pinboard client for Mac, and it's not bad at all.…

  • Marker, Grablinks, and Bullseye fixes

    Recently a few of my bookmarklets broke due to conflicts in the way GitHub serves raw gists and Chrome security settings. I've moved all of the gists that the bookmarklets previously loaded from GitHub to my own server and updated the main bookmarklet code.…

  • Marker: Web selections to Markdown

    This is a variant of my Bullseye bookmarklet which takes a selection -- including headlines, links, and images -- and converts it to Markdown using Marky.…

  • Bullseye 0.3

    First, pressing escape after running the bookmarklet will now cancel it and you can resume browsing without refreshing the page.…

  • Precise web clipping to Markdown with Bullseye

    GrabLinks went over pretty well, so I've been motivated to finish up a similar project I had going. It's called Bullseye, and it lets you click a section of a webpage and "Markdownify" just that content. It's like Readability, but you get to just tell it which part is the good stuff.…

  • GrabLinks: One more time, with feeling

    I updated the GrabLinks bookmarklet one more time tonight, and anyone with it currently installed should start seeing the changes immediately. If you still need it, drag the link below to your toolbar.…

  • Grablinks bookmarklet 2.0

    Another day, another version of GrabLinks (the bookmarklet for grabbing all links from a chosen section of a webpage as a Markdown list). The first major change is that the bookmarklet is now auto-updating. It loads the actual script from the Gist and will therefore always load the latest stable version. It pops up a small "Loading" indicator until the script loads and, if needed, injects jQuery. If it's a fast load, you may just see a brief flash of white in the upper left corner, so that's…

  • Saving batches of links from web pages

    I shared this bookmarklet on Twitter a while ago, but it's been so handy lately that I thought it was silly not to post it on the blog. It lets you hover over any section of a web page and grab all of the links contained in that portion of the page, handing them back to you as a nicely-formatted Markdown list. It's a great way to get bunches of links into nvALT or any plain text situation.…

  • searchFocus, the most useful bookmarklet I've ever made at 3:21am

    Ok, so this is the only bookmarklet I recall making that early in the morning, but it's still useful if you have a browser setup at all similar to mine. When triggered, this bookmarklet finds all input elements on the page, sorts out the text/search types, runs them through a few regular expressions to find the first one that seems a likely candidate to be the main search field and then focuses it. It's not perfect, but it works pretty well across the board (and without loading any libraries or…

  • Bookmarklet: Read Pinboard links with Instapaper Text

    Here's a quick bookmarklet you can run on any Pinboard page containing a list of bookmarks. It adds a "Read" link at the end of the edit links for each post, and clicking the link will open the post in Instapaper Text view in a new page/tab. It also marks the post you click as "read." Note that this happens whether you have that specified in the preferences or not (because it's a quick hack and I think it's weird to not mark an article as read when you read it).…

  • Clippable updated, goes mobile

    I've pushed out an update to Clippable, for better or worse. In addition to the previously added line number removal for code blocks, it removes spans used in TextMate formatted code and adds some keyboard shortcuts:…

  • Clippable updated to remove source code line numbers

    I made a couple of minor changes to the Clippable bookmarklet, mostly in the way it handles SyntaxHighlighter code blocks. The SyntaxHighlighter plugin is used (too) often to format and color code source snippets in websites. The result when clipping a page is that the code you get still has line numbers, but no option to view the raw source without going back to the web page. Then you end up manually editing out the line numbers if you want to copy and paste the code, which can be a pain in…

  • Clippable to Evernote Snow Leopard Service

    Clippable to Evernote will allow you to trigger the Clippable bookmarklet in Safari and copy the result directly to your "Unfiled" notebook in Evernote. This service is Snow Leopard-only. If you need it modified for Leopard and aren't sure how, let me know. If there's some interest, I'll just work one up and post it.…

  • Clippable

    11.03.09 Renaming Readable2 to Clippable, I think. At least that's what it's going to be on the code page, for now.…
