Form-O-Fill Chrome Extension

Important notice about store removal!

The chrome store "team" has decided to removed Form-O-Fill from the store because it required too many and too broad permissions.
On 7th of march the extension was removed even though I changed the permission as required.
Since it is impossible to get helpful information from the store "team" I decided to not publish this extension in the store anymore.
I'm sorry for those still using it but coping with the store system of allowing or disallowing extensions feels too tedious for now.

The extension still works as expected if you build and install it locally.

UPDATE: This is also happening to others.


The programmable form filler for developers.

This is a chrome extension for filling out forms in webpages. This extension is targeted at web developers who frequently must fill out long <form>s while working on a website. The configuration is done via a rule definition file written in javascript.

PERMISSIONS

The extension requires these permissions at the moment:

  1. Read and change all your data on the websites that you visit
    Form-O-Fill is built to work on every website thus requiring very broad permissions to access all form-fields on every site you visit.

  2. Display notifications
    Used for notify you of failed actions.

  3. Communicate with cooperating websites
    This permission is used to make the "Live Tutorials" and the "remote rule import" (See help under "Using Remote Rules") possible. It allows the extension to "talk" to two sites that are used for these features.
    Sites are defined here.

HOW TO REPORT ERRORS

Got an error you want to report? Perfect!
Here are a few steps to make the error debugging easier on our side:

  • Notice which version of Form-O-Fill you are using (Tools -> Extensions)
  • Checkout (clone) this repository
  • Checkout the version tag you noted earlier (eg. git checkout v1.0.0)
  • If a rule does strange things, export or copy that rule from the rule editor using the export button.
  • Deactivate the version of Form-O-Fill you got from the chrome web store.
  • In Tools -> Extensions click on "Developer Mode" (top right) then click on "Load unpacked extension ..." and choose the "src" path of the git clone. See https://developer.chrome.com/extensions/getstarted#unpacked for details.
  • Paste your saved rule in the rule editor.
  • Bug still reproducable? Very good.
  • File an issue (https://github.com/form-o-fill/form-o-fill-chrome-extension/issues)
  • Attach the errornous rule and ideally a test HTML file activating that rule.
  • If possible also export the logs you get with the cloned Form-O-Fill: Form-O-Fill Options -> Logs -> Download Logs Check that file for private / sensitive imformation and attach a gist to the issue you filed.
  • The Form-O-Fill Team thanks you for taking the time.
  • Perhaps ... a pull request to fix that bug :)
