BrainTool is a Chrome extension that can be used as a unique standalone hierarchical bookmarks manager but which also synchronizes with a plain text emacs org-mode style file on your Google Drive. The BrainTool panel in Chrome uses the org-mode tree structure but concentrates on the links within your notes thus unifying, at least for me, the two main ways I capture information.

Currently it is at a minimal MVP-for-me level of functionality so I have not published it. If you want to try it clone the extension folder and create it as a local extension:

  • open chrome extensions
  • toggle developer mode on
  • click the "Load unpacked" button and point to the extension code location
  • the extension now shows as an icon in your tool bar
  • click the icon!

There's more info in the Overview (which won't use my Jekyll style for some unknown reason). Let me know if you have any thoughts, comments, or feedback.


You can’t perform that action at this time.
