Time Capsule

banner

The best person to send you links matching your interests is a time traveling version of yourself: create a time capsule by choosing when the current tab should be re-opened; this will bookmark the current tab, and program to re-open it in the future, according to the choosen periodicity, be it an hour, a day, a month, a year, a decade!

Summary

Install

If you use a different browser that implements WebExtension, that shouldn't be hard to make it work for you too: make a request in the issues or on twitter to let me know, and I will see if that's possible.

Context

This is a reboot of the awesome, but out-dated, Browse Periodically (repo):

Browse sites you want to check periodically (every hour, day, week, month and so on). You can also use for reminding pages, for example, by browsing every month.

I started working on it before Firefox was up to speed with WebExtension so had to let it sleep for a moment. Meanwhile, a team started working on SnoozeTabs, it's pretty much the same but you loose all the time-traveling jokes.

Development Setup

git clone https://github.com/maxlath/time-capsule
cd time-capsule
  • in Chrome

    • open chrome://extensions
    • tick the developer mode box
    • click load non packaged extension and open the project's extension folder where the manifest.json file is
  • in Firefox: instructions

    • open about:debugging
    • Load Temporary Add-on and select the ./extension folder

    Or just run npm run firefox to use a temporary profile, with the advantage of automatically reloading the extension on change, thank to web-ext, but encounters this bug
