About

Chrome extension for visualizing past visits to developer resources such as blog posts or Stack Overflow questions.

This enables two things:

  1. A quick way to browse your history for recovering important development resources.

  2. An episodic timeline for reviewing your coding activities. It is amazing what we can remember by viewing a history of developer activities.

Filtering

docsight uses a whitelist approach for filtering visits to developer sites. You can add your own custom filtering! To filter google searches, only searches within the past 30 seconds of a developer site are included. As of version 1.0.4, supports 63 apis/languages!

There are two kinds of filter expressions supported 1) simple greasemonkey-like patterns with globs and 2) Javascript regex. Each pattern starts on a new line.

  1. You can choose which sites to include or exclude with the following syntax.

     @include https://github.com/*/issues* 
     @exclude https://github.com/*/issues/new* 
     @exclude *://stackoverflow.com/users*
    
  2. You can exclude sites based on its url or title content with a Javascript regex. For example, to exclude visits to user pages on stackoverflow, you could write the following:

    User .? - Stack Overflow User .? - Meta Stack Overflow

See the following for more detail about javascript regex.
