We’ve just released a beta introducing Browser integration via bookmarklet, it’s on our forum right now.
What’s so cool about it?
– You can group together files, web pages, and emails (if you’re using Gmail), with one click
You’ll have a little button on your browser, when you push it the Tabbles “Quick tag” window will pop-up and easily let you tag URLs…the cool thing is that you can tag URLs along with files and gmail emails, and find them together into the same tabbles (groups).
Plus, this works also as preliminary foundation to an SDK system, allowing people to write plugins and software to tag files/urls in all possible ways (and soon emails too). It’s all in the forum post.
This is what it looks like:
How does it work?
Step 1 – registering a custom protocol: you can make a couple of experiments on your own pc, copy&paste this text into a file.reg and double click on it. The function of registering a custom protocol is to tell Windows that each time the protocol is called, a certain application should be executed and what follows the protocol should be sent to the application as arguments. Here we’re registering the protocol “tabbles:” (looks a bit like “mailto:”, isn’t it? ) and mapping it on the path where tabbles.exe is located (on my computer).
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
@=”C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Yellow Blue Soft\\Tabbles\\tabbles.exe,0″
@=”\”C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Yellow Blue Soft\\Tabbles\\tabbles.exe\” \”%1\””
which Tabbles reads as:tabbles:tag_url;Tabbles | folders evolved;http://www.tabbles.net/ If you have Tabbles installed you can check the output using the debug log (Tools > Advanced > Show debug log). And that’s it! Doesn’t sound too hard, isn’t it? 😀
