Note from Peter:
I’m working on a new tool for web developers. It's called phpconsole.com and it will speed up your development process. Feedback welcome!
I ran into the problem of converting from one to another a while ago and all I could find was a bunch of tutorials that didn’t help too much, half of them outdated or with missing pieces of code.
There was no way that simple copy-paste will solve my problem. Surely, I can’t be the only person that has few useful bookmarklets, but want to save up space and hide bookmarks bar altogether.
Now it turns out that I somehow skipped this piece of code that looks pretty similar to code generated by converter, but before that discovery, I thought: I’m a developer, so there is only one reasonable solution to my problem:
I will create my own bookmarklet to Chrome extension converter.
It’s ready and you can find it here. All you have to do is to figure out some clever name and description, drag bookmarklet into textarea and hit “Generate” button.
You can also browse source code on GitHub.
I think it’s pretty good start point to see how simple Chrome extension looks like and develop it further, if you fancy learning basics of something new over the weekend. Want to use your own icon? Replace three png files in the folder and you’re good to go!
