What I Made
It is: a Chrome Extension.
When you click it:
- if you’re not on a page where the domain ends in
glitch.me, nothing happens.
- if you’re on a page where the domain ends in
glitch.me, it redirects your browser tab to the page on Glitch.com representing that app.
This is handy for: apps built on Glitch that don’t have a button linking to the project, so you can quickly go add the cool app to one of your collections, or see what else that creator has made on Glitch.
The App-to-Project extension is a bit more complicated than my Pinboard extension, because it only runs on
I learned through these projects that it’s really easy to make Chrome extensions, once you have a good base project to remix from, to do any little task I want to do from a webpage. I want to make more extensions now! They’re more useful to me than bookmarklets, because they live right in the same line as the address bar and so don’t take up the space that the Chrome Bookmarks bar does.
I also want to learn what the differences are between Chrome and Firefox extension definitions, so I can port my extensions to the both browsers on my own.
