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]

I've made a quick page on my site that might make it easier for people to follow progress and find the link. It's it kind of lost halfway up this thread. (Yeah, there's a smidge of self promo on the page, but nothing too serious.). Once I get a bit of feedback on the code I'll be confident in pushing a repo of it on my bitbucket page.

If we could edit the first post this would make posting updates far easier...

Autosave has been enabled along with this quick tweak.

A chrome extension is also available, though the bookmarklet is still likely the easiest install method.

Great work Jason!

So you can't edit your first post? Try hovering over the bottom left (yeah it's a bug that's been reported) and see if you get the invisible edit link.

Imagine all those typos I could have corrected...

Fixed a couple of bugs and added a few shortcuts to items I use a lot (and shamelessly added a feature request form link). As usual - Full updates in first post.
