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

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]

  • Bulk asset file uploads Drag and drop goodness. 

  • Bulk metafield creation

  • Bulk product tag editing [pic]

  • Option to show SKU on product listing page [pic]

  • Get emails from recent orders [pic]

  • Show items ordered when hovering over orderID [pic]

  • Quickly create menus (linklists with all collections, all vendors, all pages)

Thought about making a git repo on this Jason?

I will but the JavaScript in there right now is just a mash of 'thought diarrhea'. Once I clean that up I'll feel more comfortable doing that first commit. There's no intention of keeping it all to myself. I've already added the editor for products. 

Looks like that other thread is all but sorted isn't it? (unless I am missing your point)

ok, no more posts about this today. I'll add the link that people can use for some testing in a day or so. Annoy me if I forget.

Link for the brave. I ripped out all the in progress stuff so it will likely work aok. It may get updates but really they will come once I repo this sucker. You'll need the bookmarklet to fire this off. Link below.

  • This is pretty raw stuff.
  • Use it on a live site at your own risk. 
  • It's been tested in Chrome only.

Good luck to you!

I'm working on getting bulk changes done for shipping but hitting a small roadblock with cached views. It would be easier if I could tap into some of the existing functions (especially for view.set) but haven't spotted any shortcuts. Might see it better with rested eyes. Always another day...

Let's just say we have brief moments of intermission.

I've added a quick backup and restore option for the RTE:

And a quick time saver for the tags:

 

 

In addition to being able to clear and set the Batman.views it would be handy to know how to add content to the Modal window too. I've got the latter working with a yucky hack but I feel (hope?) there's got to be an exposed function I can call. I'd love any pointers from the source should they see this...

Aynway, bulk changes to shipping rates are pretty well done, including a delete all. Bulk tax changes are next I guess.

Have you thought of moving to Canada? I don't know, maybe Ottawa?

There is nothing that special in the JavaScript that most couldn't have figured out. I'm just adding stuff that I find tedious or missing simply to make my life easier. If it helps others that a bonus - certainly when some people are having some real concerns.

Next little tweak is adding a button that will save any image paths found in the description into a metafield. Saves doing long winded splits to find the content via liquid.
