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)

D3: A JavaScript visualization library for HTML and SVG

November 7, 2011 Leave a comment

D3 allows you to bind arbitrary data to a Document Object Model (DOM), and then apply data-driven transformations to the document. As a trivial example, you can use D3 to generate a basic HTML table from an array of numbers. Or, use the same data to create an interactive SVG bar chart with smooth transitions and interaction.” (source)

See also D3 on GitHub.

I haven’t used it yet, this is just a “good-to-know-about-it” note.
