Why not open source this little extension?

Hi, I don't have a good answer to that... well, neither a bad one. I have considered it and maybe in the future I'll do it. Hope it is not an inconvenience.
- Rated 3 out of 5by rk, 5 months agoIt does exactly what I want it to do with one awful drawback. The page width isn't adjusted correctly when the extension is loaded, so text starts exactly at the sidebar. Fixing this one issue would vastly improve the reading experience.
Developer responseposted 3 months agoI will work on it soon. The problem is that it tries to adjust the original styles that the page has to fit, but there can be many combinations of styles and it is difficult to identify them all or to have something general that works for all pages. If possible, could you please give me an example of page in which the problem happens?
Anyway, I will try to improve how it works.
Thank you very much for your feedback. It's very useful
- Rated 5 out of 5by Wisdomlight, 5 months agoJust what I was looking for!
Really handy to have.
- Rated 5 out of 5by Ben Scheffer, 8 months agoIt's great to have an outline for any web page. Especially when the sub-headings in a page all look alike. I don't mind that the outline is part of the document window instead of the browser sidebar. I don't need it for every page and it's just one click away. Only thing that would make it even more handy is a shortcut key.
Developer responseposted 8 months agoHi, thank you very much for your comments. Regarding the shortcut key, it is something that I have in my to-do list, and I don't have a good excuse to not having it implemented yet. So this comment works also as push to myself to do it ;)

Thank you !
- Rated 4 out of 5by Nando, a year agoI find this add-on very helpful. I would have preferred it being inside the regular Firefox side-bar however.
Developer responseposted a year agoHi Nando, glad that you find it helpful. And I fully agree with your opinion about having it as part of a sidebar. The first version (many years ago) was made that way and I had to change it because changes in the way in which the browser works. As advantage is that now it is compatible with other browsers, but the drawback is that it does not stay open when browsing. I am really considering alternatives to make it work integrated in a sidebar or even as dev-tools.
Thanks again for your comment
- Rated 5 out of 5by didj7, 2 years agoNice add-on !
Would it be possible to combine it with the Reader mode ?Hi,
Thank you for your comment and suggestion. I never thought of that option but I think it could make sense. I don't know if it is feasible, but for sure I will add it to my to-do list for this extension: https://rumoroso.bitbucket.io/headingsmap/todo.html
Thank you again for writing a comment and suggestion ;)
- Rated 5 out of 5by Doug, 2 years agoI am using this extension to quickly review articles to see if they have useful information for me and zone in on potentially interesting sections immediately. This allows me to review web pages quickly before deciding if parts or all of them are worth a read. Within 30 seconds of installing this plugin I found it immensely useful.
Another reviewer suggested the ability to click a heading on the page and have the TOC entry highlighted. This would be very useful so that if I search a page for key words I can know where in the TOC the results are (find next word goes to the word directly, but where in the article's TOC is it? This would roughly double the usefulness of this plugin for me.
Thanks for creating this plugin, Rumoroso, it is an instant hit with me.Hi Doug, thanks for sharing your feedback. I am always happy to know that the extension is useful and also to have this kind of feedback that gives additional ideas of features that it could include.
Regarding your suggestion, right now there is a visual clue that can help to identify the header. Maybe it is not the best way, but I think it could help. If you go to the settings dialog, you'll find one option with the label "Relate with viewport". When it is active, besides each item in the list of headers, at the right, you'll see a grey line that, when you scroll in the page, visually identify the headers (or sections) that are in the viewport area. When writing this comment I am thinking that maybe it is not the best name for the option. I also think that it can be far from your suggestion, but maybe it can help a bit.
Anyway, I just included your suggestion in the to-do list that I have: https://rumoroso.bitbucket.io/headingsmap/todo.html I have to say that some of them have been in the list for some months, so I cannot ensure when are going to be implemented, but at least it is a place to not forget them.
Again, thanks for your comment and your feedback
- Rated 5 out of 5by Firefox user 5461742, 2 years agoVery useful! Would be nice to have a shortcut to turn it on, though.Hi, thank you very much for your comment and suggestion. I have to confess that the idea of a custom shortcut is in my to-do list, so I hope I will work on it soon https://rumoroso.bitbucket.io/headingsmap/todo.html ;)
- Rated 5 out of 5by Nijaz Muratović, 2 years agoUseful for kiwix wikipedia hosted via kiwix server which normally does not have index (contents), but also for many pages. Been waiting for this extension for years.Hi Nijaz, thanks for your comment. Knowing that the extension is useful always makes me happy ;)
- Rated 5 out of 5by Pierre-Antoine Champin, 3 years agoI could never live without this extension anymore! It is simple and does the job right. A lifesaver for anyone who needs to refer to long online documentations on a regular basis.
- Rated 5 out of 5by Raukan, 3 years agoImpressive. Was an excellent solution to cleaning up some websites. Clean, simple, intuitive, and works well.
- Rated 5 out of 5by Firefox user 16124644, 3 years agoVery nice extension, does exactly what I expected.
There is only one feature I miss. If I am at a certain tag in the HTML document then I would like to show it in the add-on's panel.
Now only the opposite direction works: I can click on the add-on's panel so that the HTML document scrolls to the given heading. What I would like is to right click on a heading within the HTML document and want the add-on panel to be scrolled there.
Developer responseposted 3 years agoThank you very much for your comment, and specially for sharing the idea of that potential new feature (which by the way I like). I will include it in the "to-do" list. I think this can go in parallel with other that is also in the list, which is to somehow show reflect the position of the scroll in the page regarding the headers, with the headers in the extension.
