Extension Boilerplate - foundation for building cross browser extensions for Chrome, Firefox & Opera from a single code base (olny a sample extension):
The email this
extension looks rather good.
I was interested in it as I have had difficulty finding a replacement for the FF (Firefox) add-on Scrapbook
, and email this
could be an alternative (maybe better than ReadItLater, etc.).
However, what I am wanting is a copy of the full web page - i.e., including all items on the webpage - diagrams, photos, embedded links, even embedded/linked .ZIP, .exe, or .PDF files. (Scrapbook can do this).
As a potential alternative to Scrapbook, I have a provisional workaround in Slimjet, using the right-click menu option Save As
, which provides the web page only, as a single file, saved in .mhtml
format - which is highly compressed (compared to the .htm
format) and can be read by most/any browser-reading tool - including @skwire's
excellent Mass HTML Viewer
(refer Efficiently view set of .htm files, one after another
This Save As
functionality requires the Chrome extensions SingleFile
and SingleFile Core
These web page files can be saved to a directory on the local client, which can be (say) connected to a Cloud folder and accessed from any device. On a Windows client, the files can be indexed/searched by WDS
(Windows Desktop Search), so file management, retrieval and access is performed using Windows Explorer
and is actually simpler and more reliable than using the Scrapbook File Manager and Search tools - which can only be used in the FF browser and are slow as all heck, though there is the benefit of being able to make notes that are attached to (go with) the saved pages.
Using the NTFS as the database seems simpler than locking the data into some kind of proprietary tool (e.g., FF Scrapbook, or Zotero - both of which are rather similar in that they use similar code for copying web pages WebPageDump
Anyway, having read this, if you come across anything that might be able to help further with this in Slimjet, then I'd be grateful if you would link to it in this thread. (Thanks.)
