Great Link: PSChrome Extension



The other day, I ran across this nice Chrome Extension called PSChrome.

I had an old TamperMonkey script that I had used, and I was wondering if an extension might make more sense. When I looked to see if one already exists, I found PSChrome.

One of the big features is that it displays a list of environments on the sign on page. That allows you to jump between multiple environments.

You can also access the same list of environments from the PSChrome menu:

The other big feature is this little extra toolbar that it adds to the pages:

From the toolbar, you can view the Ctrl+J information by clicking on a button. This is even handier because it has a button for copying the component name, page name, etc.

Another handy tool is the timeout evasion. It automatically sends a post to avoid having your session timeout.

You can read more about the extension on the features page of their website:

Finally, I would like to suggest a few features:

  • Saved Login Information: I would love a list of users for an environment. That would be handy for testing Workflow in a non-production environment. On the login screen, I could just click the saved user, and it would populate the username and password for that user.
  • Security Research: ability to jump to a query that would show what roles, permission lists, and/or users have access to the current page
  • Environment Jump: ability to jump to the same page in another environment

On a related note, the PS Utilities extension also looks very interesting. I haven’t tried it out yet:
