What would it take to build a web clipper plug-in?
What I mean by this: I’d like to select/highlight a snippet of text from an online article, then use this browser plug-in to save that text in a document. Kind of like Kindle Clippings, but for webpages instead of e-books.
However, I am a novice developer and I’ve got no idea where to start.
What are tools I’d have to collect to achieve this?
1. Learn how to build a plug-in
2. Build a user-interface.
3. Learn how to write the data I retrieve to a text document.
4. Do you know of similar projects I could reference?
It’d be nice as well if I could add notes to those snippets of text.
Thank you all!
