Send To Phone

2010-05-23 15:31 - Bookmarklets

Google recently announced the Cloud To Device Messaging framework, and there's already a Chrome To Phone extension. I don't use Chrome for my day-to-day browsing, so here's a simple bookmarklet that sends the request to their same app engine server, to be forwarded to your phone. The Setup Instructions are basically the same as for the chrome extension. Once they're done, the bookmarklet should work.

Since I'm piggybacking on their server, I can't customize what it does. I'm opening a window to the URL that they would be AJAX-like fetching (cross domain, since their client is an extension). You'll have to read the response it gives (usually just "OK"), and close the window/tab.

Here's a second version that should send the next link you click on (rather than the current page).

You may use Markdown syntax in the comment, but no HTML. Hints:

  • An empty line between text will create a paragraph boundary.
  • Use angle braces around a plain URL to auto-link it: <http://www.example.com/>.
  • Use this format to create a link with different text showing: [An Example](http://www.example.com/).
  • Use backticks (``), not leading spaces to enclose a code block.

If you are attempting to contact me, ask me a question, etc, please send me a message through the contact form rather than posting a comment here. Thank you. (If you post a comment anyway when it should be a message to me, I'll probably just delete your comment. I don't like clutter.)
