Baseliner

All your baseline are belong to us

Baseliner is a Chrome extension for perfectionist Front-End Developers and UX Designers.

This tool will add grid layer on top of any website to be used as a guidance when developing interfaces.

Features

You can set the horizontal guides to match your specification as well as the starting point, in case you're only concerned about individual modules of your site.

For better experience, you can now change the colour of the lines as well as the opacity, making it easier to compare the grid with your website design.

Persistent Data

As of v5.3, Baseliner will save current configuration values into the Chorme Storage API. This enables the user to have a persistent experience when the extension is closed and opened later on.

Force height

Some websites set height: 100% to the body tag making its size to match the viewport. If you scroll down, Baseliner won't be repeated anymore due to being attached to the body tag.

By ticking the Force height checkbox, we overwrite that property: body {height: auto}, enabling Baseliner to repeat itself until the bottom of the page.

Installation

Baseliner is a Chrome extension and can be found at the Chrome Web Store - https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/baseliner/agoopbiflnjadjfbhimhlmcbgmdgldld
