SteemToolbar is a Google Chrome extension that will help you keep an eye on key indicators and allows you to permanently monitor these values while browsing the Steemit.com website.
SteemToolbar was initially introduced under the name “SteemitToolbar”. But per Steemit inc. request, I renamed it to SteemToolbar to comply with name usage permission. The Steem name is free to use whereas Steemit is the property of Steemit inc.
This Google Chrome Extension is my own work and is not released, endorsed, or reviewed by Steemit inc.
The extension is available here on the Chrome Webstore
Click on the “add to chrome” button
Click on the “Add extension” button.
For your information, the only data the SteemToolbar will read in your browser is the URL of the active tab. If the site address matches “https://steemit.com”, then the extension will activate itself and displays the SteemToolbar.
Once installed, the SteemToolbar extension will appear as a small button on the right of your address bar. If you click on it, a configuration window will popup.
2.1 Configure your account
After installing the extension, SteemToolbar will not display any Voting Power. You need to configure your account. To do this, click on the extension icon.
The configuration windows is displayed and you will be able to enter your account name.
Type your account name and hit
ENTER when done. The toolbar will immediately updates itself and start to periodically show your Reputation and Voting Power.
SteemToolbar displays your reputation with 2 decimals and allows you to better know how far you are from your next level. This is especially useful for high reputation users
If you made a mistake when entering your account name, SteemToolbar won’t be able to retrieve your account information from the blockchain and will display an “Unknown User” error message.
2.2 Configure displayed values
You can choose which values to display in the SteemToolbar by checking or unchecking each of them. The SteemToolbar will be automatically updated according to your choice.
Display your account’s current voting power. This value is updated every 3 seconds and its color will change depending on the voting power you left.
- green if your VP is greater than 80
- orange if your VP is greater than 60
- red if your VP is lower than 60
Display last average market price of the STEEM token. The price is taken from several exchanges and averaged.
Display last average market price of the SBD token. The price is taken from several exchanges and averaged.
2.3 Steemit and Golos compatible
Golos is the Russian speaking brother of Steemit. This new feature is useful for people having an account on both Steemit and Golos.
You can now choose to display GOLOS and GBG token values as well.
Moreover, the extension will also work when browsing golos.io and display the voting power of your Golos account.
2.4 Configure your currency
When showing STEEM, SBD, GOLOS or GBG value, SteemToolbar can convert it to several currencies. Select the one that best fit your need and the display will automatically be updated.
You can display token values in :
- Bitcoin (BTC)
- Chinese Yuan (CNY)
- Korean Won (KRW)
- Euro (EUR)
- Russian Rouble (RUB)
- US Dollar (USD)
2.5 Configure the price variation
SteemToolbar will also show the price variation for the tokens you have chosen in relation to the associated currency. The comparison can be made on different time gap.
For example, if you choose 30 min, SteemToolbar will show the difference between the current price and the one 30 minutes ago.
If the new price is greater or equal than previously, the ratio will be displayed in green
If the new price is lower than previously, the ratio will be displayed in red
When you’re done configuring SteemToolbar, simply click outside the popup window. Your configuration will be automatically saved.
3. New features
SteemToolbar localization has been implemented and it supports the following languages:
- English (this will the default language if you browser's language is not supported)
3.2 Jump to exchange
SteemToolbar allows you to quick jump to the Bittrex exchange from any token displayed on the toolbar. Click on a token, and SteemToolbar will open a new tab in your browser with the related token market on Bittrex.
A quick and easy we to have a detailed overview of your favorite token on the market.
4. The Toolbar into action
On this screenshot, you can see that the toolbar is only visible on the tab browsing steemit.com.
At the time of the screenshot, my voting power was going low and displayed in orange.
5. Additional sites supported
Of course, this come on the of the activation on “https://golos.io”
Next releases coming soon.
Some features are already planned for the next release
- add more currencies for conversion
- add more languages support
- add more exchanges for quick jump
- and many other ideas of which I do not yet speak to keep the surprise ...
