- by Doug, 4 months agoRated 5 out of 5I 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
- by Firefox user 5461742, 5 months agoRated 5 out of 5Very 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 ;)
- by Nijaz Muratović, 7 months agoRated 5 out of 5Useful 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.
- by Pierre-Antoine Champin, a year agoRated 5 out of 5I 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.
- by Firefox user 16124644, a year agoRated 5 out of 5Very 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 a year 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.
- by Firefox user 14460640, 3 years agoRated 5 out of 5Great extension! It gives an instant Table of Content on a webpage that properly use heading elements!
One improvement that is really glaring:
* Add to Firefox Sidebar so it won't block the page itselfHi, thanks for your comment and rating.
Regarding to the sidebar, I totally agree with that idea. The extension, while XUL could be used for integrating it in the browser, was always a sidebar panel, so it was perfect because it didn´t interfere in the page and, additionally, could be open while browsing between pages.
That had to change with the new webextensions API. The advantage of this change is that the same development works for other browsers.
I have in mind to try to include it again as sidebar panel. Right now I am working in a change for giving additional feedback for SEO analysis. Once it is done, I will try with the panel ;)
Again, thanks for your comment. This kind of feedback keeps my motivation for trying to make it better ;)
- by hmijail, 3 years agoRated 5 out of 5Seems to work OK, but lately there's updates in rapid fire (multiple per day??) and the size has doubled with no release notes provided, which makes me suspicious. What is going on?
Hoping that the add-on hasn't been hijacked and turned nefarious.
EDITED: The developer answered satisfactorily. Thank you for your work!Hi hmijail, thanks for your comment and feedback. I think it is very useful and made me see other point of view.
The weight that the extension has now is caused by an error that I made when including the spinner-gif that is shown when generating the trees (the HTML5 outline takes time and I thought it was good idea). I just realised of it because you mentioned it. The problem is that I didn't optimise it (maybe half of the size is because that gif). I will fix it in the next release.
Regarding to the often updates, to be honest, I didn't think that could generate some concerns, but it is good that you brought that idea to me. I have been adding lots of changes that mean some new features, also improvements in the performance and a couple of bugfixes. I usually release the changes as soon as I apply them, instead of waiting for having a bunch of them done. I would say that it is more like a continuos delivery than a scheduled releases. I think that, after this, creating a page with the release notes could be a good idea, so they can be accessible for anyone. Just to cover a bit my lack on creating those release notes, some of the changes I introduced this week are:
* New features (some of them):
- new panel for settings (it appears inside the panel)
- new dark theme
- option for including the aria-label content
- resizer for the panel
- option for placing the panel in the right side
- CSS overscroll-behavior property set to none for preventing the scroll of the page when the tree has scroll
- refactor in the code for improving the speed in which the trees are generated
- only the tree of the current tab is generated (before this, both trees were generated always)
- better DOM structure of the content
I also applied some minor changes that made the code more clean and structured and also some bugfixes. Ah, and I updated the code so the version for Chrome of the add-on shares the same code, helping me in the development process because there is no duplicated work.
So just for finishing this long comment, I can tell you that the add-on hasn't been hijacked and still keeps the initial intention that always had. Anyway, I guess that if that would be the case, the Mozilla review (step that is executed before any release) would block the release of the add-on.
- by Firefox user 14038117, 3 years agoRated 5 out of 5Thanks for making this! One thing I would like would be a way to specify the color scheme of the outline page. Even a simple checkbox to enable a dark mode with inverted colors, would be fantastic as an initial easy option.
UPDATE: The additional dark theme option is great! Thanks for the update!Hi, thanks for your comment (I know, I waited too much for answering :( ). I just added some changes and one of those is the "dark" theme as option (selecting it is possible in the configuration page of the extension). I hope it helps.
