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:
- Microsoft Edge Store: https://microsoftedge.microsoft.com/addons/detail/keeoljiflfdhhkpldigccakgbnbiaoim
- Google Chrome Store: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/trello-writers-block-exte/abhmlodanpjhefabiedknpcdihmghiha?hl=en-US
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. 😱
Add it to your browser and let me know what you think.
