- by Zach, a year agoRated 5 out of 5Great for people who are used to Safari's Reading List (though it isn't cross-device). Love how simple it is, with clean unobtrusive design. I tried to get into Pocket and it just bounced off me, and the extensions for it are fairly terrible. I like the one click to add a page. This works for me!
Comparing to Reading List, maybe an option to pull website icons and a bit of body text would be nice...
- by Firefox user 13968536, a year agoRated 5 out of 5Excellent extension. No more leaving 50 tabs open to look at later. It's great that it works efficiently, and with the sidebar.
However, I wish the design was better. I also wish it was integrated into the address bar rather than the toolbar, but you seem to be able to add to Pile using the bookmark button, anyways.
- by Firefox user 14550385, 3 years agoRated 4 out of 5This is such a simple, but effective addon. Generally I tend to just leave dozens of tabs open to go back to or randomly bookmark things that I mean to go back to later. This makes it easy to add 'read later' items all in one place.
- by Thomas James "Tom" Seymour, 3 years agoRated 4 out of 5I'd like just one extra feature with this add-on, to see a menu to either add a bookmark to my Pile folder or open the Pile sidebar by clicking the Pile icon in my toolbar.
- by LeD, 3 years agoRated 3 out of 5Good replace for Read-It-Later (not supported in Quantum), but...
If possible, add a few useful options, please:
1) Close tab, when add to Pile.
2) Delete from Pile, when open.
3) Search not only in titles, but urls too.
4) Sort by date, or title, or url.
Developer responseposted 3 years agoThank you for your suggestions! I will given them some serious consideration. Some quick feedback right off the bat:
1. Right-click the page and choose "Put the page on the Pile and close it".
2. This might not match the work style of other users (some songs/videos/docs want to be heard/seen/read several times before deletion).
3+4. I am trying to keep Pile as lightweight as possible - performance and UI complexity-wise. Powerful search and filter functionalities are already provided via Bookmarks/Show All Bookmarks. I do not want to re-implement this and cram it into the sidebar. But I do understand that piles can become overwhelmingly large over time. I will meditate on this.
- by Firefox user 13546421, 4 years agoRated 5 out of 5EDITED: updated rating, thanks for answering my questions :-)
Does what it says, great potential, but here are some features I'd like to see:
Clicking again on the icon should toggle bookmark instead of bookmarking again.
Add a setting to choose the destination folder (some might want to put it in the bookmark toolbar)
Since this is under MIT license, would you mind adding a link to a code repository to read/contribute?• A toggle would require the add-on to search all bookmarks every time a new page is loaded. As I want to keep this as lightweight as possible, I went for another solution: If you try to add an already existing bookmark, it is moved to the top. Duplicates are deleted.
• You can move the Pile folder wherever you want, including the bookmarking toolbar.
• Good idea. I will put it on github in the coming days.
- by Donald Reed, 4 years agoRated 5 out of 5This addon has potential but I wish it has two features:
1. Favicons - it will make easier to distinguish between sites on pile (I think API for this is available)
2. Search - it will be easier to manage long list of saved pages
Also, not sure if it's possible - add button to show pile sidebar directly. Currently pile have to be chosen from sidebar menu manually unless it was the last item accessed.1. Access to cached favicons is not (yet) supported. See: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1315616
2. Pile v1.4 now features a little search field
3. FF 57 now features a dedicated sidebar show/hide button. You can also move the sidebar to the right side now, if you want.
- by Firefox user 12609462, 4 years agoRated 5 out of 5It's a nice and practical idea to have a place to short bookmarks temporarily, it works fine so far. It's light and not bloated as well, my thanks to the dev and I hope this app will get support!
