These days I’m working on a new chrome extension: comment everywhere. It is an extension to allow you to comment on any web pages. It will have these features:
- Of cause, comment on any web pages.
- Show the web pages you have comment.
- Show some web pages that have most comments.
- Get comments from SNS.
The first three features have been implied. I’m working on fetching comments from Weibo.com now.
I have learned a lot while I write this extension. Both technology part and the non-technology part. The technology part is I’m using these techniques:
- Node.js as backend.
- MongoDB as database.
- CSS and HTML for UI and homepage design.
I’d like to say json is awesome.
The non-technology part is I really learned you always spend more time to write a product than you thought. I spend almost a month to write such a extension (though I have less time to code this month). It makes me more modest.
Though the basic features have been complete, it takes more to make it looks like a real product. But I believe I’m on the road.
