Trello Writers Block – Browser Extension

I have been in full-bore developer mode of late, trying new things and writing a lot of code. One area I thought I would give a try is browser extensions. I find myself wanting to tag pages so that I can reference them later in something I am writing or working on. And because I like to store information in Trello, I wanted something that combined both. So, here is an extension I created that will do just that. It takes the page you are on and then creates an MLA or APA reference and then adds it to a card in Trello for you.

I published this to both the Microsoft Edge and the Google Chrome store:

The following screen shots show you what it looks like when you are using it:

This browser extension is useful if you are a student writing a paper (supports MLA and APA formats), an author writing a book, or a blogger or someone doing research and keeping track of references using notecards. Because Trello is a digital version of notecards and it is available everywhere and stored in the cloud, you don’t have to worry about the dog eating your homework. đŸ˜±

Add it to your browser and let me know what you think.

  1. Can multiple word windows be changed into a single window, and the effect of tab differentiation be achieved?

    I checked some VBA, it seems that I can’t do it.

    However, there are other programs to achieve this effect, and I don’t know how to achieve it.

    • If you are asking for how to turn on Tabs in the full version of Word like Tabs in a browser, Word does not support tabs. Word used to support multiple documents in the same window, but that is no longer the case for several versions now. The best option is View side by side or arrange windows. But you can run Word Online in a browser if that is what you want to do and then work with tabs that way.
