How to use our addon
wallabagger is a browser extension to add pages to wallabag, with the ability to:
- save current page
- edit title
- add (with autocomplete!) and remove tags
- set starred and archived
First of all you have to create a new client on your wallabag installation. How to do that is described in that part of the documentation.
What we need from that client is two strings: Client ID and Client secret.
Access options page
After the installation of Wallabagger extension you can setup it by going to the options page. This page is accessible by
Right click on extension icon and choose menu "options"
Go to your Chromium-based browser extension setup page, and click on the "options" link in the Wallabagger section
Enter the URL of your wallabag installation (without "http://" ), check "https" if you use that, and click "Check URL" button
if the URL is valid then in checklist in the bottom of page will be information about that.
If the URL was checked and a correct api is found, then the client and user credential fields appears. Fill them and click the "Get token" button. From now access token will be fetched authomatically, when it expires.
if the credentials are correct you'll see it in the checklist with an information about that.
If you have tags including spaces, check appropriate options. This will toggle the ending tag key from Space to Enter
In this version of the extension your password is stored in the browser local storage as a plain text and could be retrieved by anyone with access to your computer. The password encryption will be implemented in future versions.
