Who wants a free browser extension for their project?

Todd Schiller @tschiller

As part of kicking the tires on our low-code browser extension builder, we wanted to support the IH community by creating browser extensions for folk's projects for free

Some ideas to get you started:

  • Have a data product? We can enrich other sites/apps with that data
  • Have a SaaS/API product? We can integrate your product into the UX of other sites
  • Have a clunky, repetitive, web workflow? We can automate it with robotic process automation (RPA)

By making your product part of your customer's natural online flows, you deliver more value and make your product stickier

In the comments, post your ideas of what you'd like to make. We'll reach out to see how we can help!

Here's a quick demo where we used PixieBrix to integrate LinkedIn, Hubspot, and Slack

    I am thinking about a Coupon Tool that would generate the Active Coupons of the website you are visiting. Let's imagine you are onan ecom website and you use the browser extension, you should be able to extract all the coupons that are active on this particular website

    1. 1

      That's a great use case. You're looking to save a coupon on the page to a spreadsheet (or database)? Or do you have a spreadsheet and you want to show a user all the coupons that apply?

        What I am working on is something like Honey Coupon https://www.joinhoney.com/ . When my user is on a marchant website and picks stuff to buy the browser extension should open a popup to let him know what coupon are available that would save him money.

        1. 1

          Sure, we can help with that - do you track the coupons in a database, spreadsheet, or some other tool?

          1. 1

            I am still working on that but I believe the Coupon should be in a database and that Database should be populated through the scanning of the sellers website and when the coupon is collected it should fill the Database. I don't know if I made sense.

            1. 1

              Sure, we can interact with a database to show available coupons on a page.

              Our software could potentially also find codes on a page and add them to the database. Or allow a person to report a code they found on a page

              However, our tool doesn't do large-scale automated scraping

    Chrome Extensions are great. We have built few extensions in the past.

      Nice, just followed Automatio - looks slick! What other extensions have you built?

        Thanks Tod. There is few more, some sitting in private Github, but there is also old side project, but don't mind its buggy, old and unfinished. www.moon.ly

          Cool! I really like the idea of using browser extensions to inject a bit of serendipity into your day
