Webmaster tool update (v0.0.7) - Cloudflare support, notification icon, domain status in dashboard, and a few 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!

New features

The new features are summarized below:

Supporting Cloudflare

A new Cloudflare tab has been added where users can see their information, e.g. account, domains, DNS records, page rules etc. Settings tab has been updated to give users the flexibility to show/hide Cloudflare tab.

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

And the following commits:



As shown in the screen dump above, a background script to show notification has been added to the tool if user’s account balance is low. I realize that there are lots of work to do with customized notifications, e.g. configuring an account threshold to trigger the notification, showing notification if a server is not running properly etc. These features may appear in the future releases.

The work for this feature can be viewed in this commit:


First, domain information has been added into dashboard, giving user an overview of domains they own. This work, together with the refactoring work of dashboard can be viewed in this commit:

Second, the date fields have been refined to give user the same date format. The work can be viewed mainly in this commit:

Third, thanks to @justyy for his feedback. The field for API keys has been changed from text to ‘password’ field. Also, the label for checkboxes have been changed as well. The related commits are:

Previous contributions



In the following iterations, I will provide support to more service providers, e.g, Namecheap, 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.

Proof of work

I have added my Steemit account link in the README:


Thank you for your contribution. A lot of code is commented, but as a developer, it would be nice to know what exactly some of the functions do.

For Example, this line chrome.runtime.onInstalled.addListener(function() {, I can sense that when we install the plugin the function will be called, but does it run everytime a page is opened. This information about the function if commented would be nice for developers who are looking at your source code.
