Web development bookmarklets

posted: Jun 20, 2003 4:49:54 PM

Web development bookmarklets look like they will save me a lot of time, especially when I am doing development in CSS and Javascript. The other bookmarklets on the site look good too.

Does anyone know if it is possible, or even better, have an example of how to make a bookmarklet that pops up a window (menu) that can have a list of other bookmarklets? Besides wanting to have 20 web development bookmarklets handy, I have some iCite related bookmarklets in mind.

It seems like it would be nice to be able to create bookmarklet "menus" that are easy to get at and can be used to group bookmarklets together by category.

You can make a bookmarklet that loads a .js file full of bookmarklets: I guess you could do something similar and have the bookmarklets actually be contained in the bookmarklet, since Mozilla doesn't limit URL length. I prefer to put bookmarklets on folders in my personal toolbar, because that way I don't have an extra window to close when I'm done using a bookmarklet. makes it easy to set up bookmark folders full of bookmarklets.
