Webmaster tool update (v0.0.8) - Namesilo support, settings tab UI improvements and updated dashboard

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!

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. This tool is very useful. I would suggest adding a global password to unlock the control panel. Of course the users can turn this lock on/off.

Also, another small improvement is to remember the last opened tab, for example, I'd like to view the CloudFlare everytime I click the extension.

Thank you for your suggestion. Adding a password to control panel sounds a good idea and I will think about it in future versions.

The second suggestion has already been implemented, e.g. tick 'Cloudflare' and click 'Save' and the 'Cloudflare' tab will be open when you load the extension next time.

Interesante información.. Gracias por compartirla.
