The tool is currently in a broken state so no need to let me know.

-----------

Since I've been drinking way too much caffeine, I've put some extra awake time into collating all my little JavaScript dashboard hacks into a unified resource. I'm calling it ShopifyFD. Rubbish name, but we are stuck with it now!

You can help keep me full of caffeine by dropping a few dollars in the tip jar

I've got a form setup ready to take your feature requests. The tool is currently available in four flavours: 

  1. A Chrome extension
  2. A bookmarklet, (Tested mostly in Chrome, but safari and firefox seem happy enough too!)
  3. A Developer bookmarklet - not for live storefronts and as such won't have a public link.
  4. A next version branch with re-written code and snapper interface for internal testing

FEATURES

This version (now with over 7500 weekly users!) is a continued work in progress. Assume by using this your computer will swear at you, then explode. (of course it won't, being JavaScript, but you know - a little paranoia never hurts).

  • Inline metafield editor for Products, Product Variants [pic], Pages, Articles, Customers, Custom Collections, Orders and Shop [pic]

  • Copy and paste your Shipping Rates settings

  • One click backup for page and products -- for those just in case moments! 

  • Jump to open orders with a single click -- click on the counter

  • Quick remove all / add all tags on product page

  • Show Variant IDs in product listing. 

  • Purge HTML button to absolutely remove any html from the description box. Handy when copy over the madness from a word file. 

  • Images to metafields. Saves all image paths in the description box to a metafield. Super handy for developers. 

  • Jump to page feature for quick page editing. No more multiple clicks to open a different page to edit. [pic]. Now also includes linklists and products.

  • Adjusted layout to squeeze things in without wasting as much space.

  • Add some quick shortcut buttons for regular tasks [pic]

  • Copy and paste metafields between products [pic]

That's probably enough for the pages for now. Time to get back to other work but next stop will be adding it to products as the code is pretty well the same.

How'd you get into the interface like that?!

Not as voodoo like as you'd think -- just simply added a script into the body of the page which in turn loads a larger script file and css asset.

So Jason are you like 24/7 now? Or did you win a lifetime supply of redbull?

Sometimes I think I run close to that. Changing from that routine just freaks people out..

Haha! Nice strip. That's the life I lead as well and my wife would probably react about the same.

Just another little tweak on those metafields for pages. I'm tracking back through some of the threads trying to find other features people may be missing. Does anyone have any suggestions? Who knows, it's possible I've already got that script here ready to go.

Also wouldn't mind a few brave testers...

For lots of pages edits a quick drop down is king. Jumping back to the page list is slow. Just added this:

Thought about making a git repo on this Jason? To most I think product metafields and product IDs would be a big winner. Did you see this thread earlier today?
