Creating and Integrating Bookmarklets with Rails
If your application stores information, one of the most critical keys to success is allowing users to get that information in quick. If the process is a pain, they’ll move on to something else. One way to allow for easy and quick data entry is a bookmarklet. I recently created a couple for an app I am scratching an itch with and thought I would share the results with you.
Two FYIs: For some reason I sniffed twice during the recording, but I decided to leave them both in to add some “reality.” Also, the ND YouTube tab was open because I was going to show how the tumblr bookmarklet works, not because I forgot the tab open.
