marker.to: annotate a webpage and share it

March 21, 2013 Leave a comment

Problem
There is a webpage with lots of useful information and you want to highlight/annotate some parts of it for future references.

In my current case, I want to watch the videos of PyCon US 2013 but I don’t have much time so it will take some weeks till I finish them. In the meantime, I don’t want to forget which ones I had already seen. It would be nice if I could add some custom notes to the webpage that lists the videos. In addition, I want to see/edit my annotations at home and at my workplace too, i.e. it should be web-based.

Solution
Marker.to is a browser extension that does exactly this.

Have you ever used a marker pen for highlighting your paper documents?

Marker.to will do the same for webpages! After you install a browser extension or bookmarklet and run Marker simply by clicking on the icon, you can highlight text on a website with your mouse.

Annotating helps to point out important information in long articles. Our annotator creates a special link for the highlighted version of the page (like http://marker.to/XYZ123). You can share it through Twitter, Facebook, e-mail, IM etc. Or just bookmark it with your favorite bookmarking tool, i.e. Delicious.

You can view highlighted page with any browser! No bookmarklet or browser extension is necessary for viewing.” (source)

Nikola is a static website and blog generator. The very short explanation is that it takes some texts you wrote, and uses them to create a folder full of HTML files. If you upload that folder to a server, you will have a rather full-featured website, done with little effort.
