Add a link to a remote database


(Ssedume) #1

Is it possible to create an extension to add a link to a remote dB? Say a user clicks a button that sends the link to a dB? :thinking:

That sounds like something that a website could do too, so yes.

Thanks for the quick one. I want anyone using any browser to add links from selected websites eg Bing or Aliexpress to one dB. Now no website can’t do that. Any advice?

I am sorry, but I do not understand this post at all. Here is my interpretation:

You want to create an extension that lets the user add links from a website of their choice to some service.

How to do that:
Add a button, upon click collect all links and send them to the service.

Yes you got it. Any pointers to the best documentation😊

I mean, the docs on MDN are pretty great: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/Add-ons/WebExtensions

however there’s no ready-made solution, since the “send them to the service” bit is very dependent on the service.

OK thanks let me get my hands dirty. Appreciate.
