The tool is currently in a broken state so no need to let me know.
A quick summary can be found here:






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


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).

I know its been a hellish year but your last update here was over a year ago. Is this project defunct? I was unable to install it to even try it out but what I read is very promising.
