Has anyone written a browser extension that interacts with the Beeminder UI? Not just changing the CSS, that would be too trivial, but interacting with the site in some way, like making the data entry always switch to advanced entry by default, or always using goal date and goal total. Firefox and/or Chrome.
I have a few reasons for asking:
- Maybe some people want the same features as other people. If it’s already been written, no reason to write it again.
- Even if the exact feature someone wants hasn’t been written, it’s probably a lot easier to modify an extension someone else has written than write one from scratch.
Yes, changes to the site would probably break extensions, and I wouldn’t expect Beeminder to try to keep from breaking them. But there are some benefits for Beeminder as a site too:
- Serves as an outlet for power users to get features (that can be implemented entirely client side) that aren’t a priority for Beeminder.
- Makes an implicit opinion poll of features power users would like to have.
Let me know if you’ve tried this or are interested in this idea (or think it’s terrible)!
