Webmaster tool update (v0.0.5) - Linode support, New dashboard, and other improvements

in #utopian-io6 years ago

Github repository: https://github.com/yuxir/webmastertool

What is the project about?

Lots of technical people like me use various cloud service providers to manage their VPS, domain, storage etc. It is a time consuming and tedious job to check each account regularly. For example, most service providers recommend users to enable two factor authentication therefore users have to get their phone when they want to login. However, in most time, users only want to have a quick check of their services’ status, account information etc. That is why I want to develop this Chrome extension to put all those information together and allow users to check all information in a single click!

The new features are summarized below:

Supporting Linode

A new Linode tab has been added where users can see their information, e.g. account, profile, Lincode instances, domains etc. Settings tab has been updated to give users the flexibility to show/hide Linode tab.

The work with Linode can be viewed mainly in this JS file:

And the following commits:


A new Dashboard is introduced to give users an overview of all important information they need from various VPS providers. At present, account balances and server status are listed in the dashboard. I am open to suggestions on which information should be included in the dashboard. Also, I realize that a customized dashboard might be useful, therefore more customized settings in the 'Setting' tab is under my consideration.

The work with new dashboard can be viewed mainly in the following commits:


Other improvements

I have refactored my code a bit, e.g. use fetch method to replace jquery ajax calls, as the traditional ajax call is a bit cumbersome and hard to pass information in a chain of processors.

Previous contributions



In the following iterations, I will provide support to more service providers, e.g, Heroku, AWS, etc. Also, depending on the feedback, I may support some operations via cloud service provider APIs, e.g. start/stop/restart a server, create a snapshot, etc.
