Auto Tab Opener

Auto Tab Opener is a simple Firefox addon that allows you to open multiple URLs at once and to store them locally.

Get the Add-on

Purpose

Use Auto Tab Opener for example if you have several social media pages open all the time and don't want to open them manually every time you restart Firefox or your computer. After the restart you only have to click "open" because Auto Tab Opener saves all your URLs locally right after you enter them.

For developers

How it works

Auto Tab Opener stores all user's URLs in Firefox' local storage using browser.storage.local.set:

urlcheck();
var url = $(this).prev('.urlinput').val();
if(validateUrl(url) == true){
    $(this).next('.warnung').css({ 'display': 'none' });
    $(this).after('<br><input placeholder="example.com" class="urlinput" type="text"></input><i title="Add website" class="fas fa-plus-circle kreis"></i><a class="warnung">Invalid URL!</a>');
    $(this).removeClass('fa-plus-circle');
    $(this).addClass('fa-minus-circle');
} else if(validateUrl(url) == false) {
    $(this).next('.warnung').css({ 'display': 'inline-block' });
}

Before any URLs are added, the urlcheck() function checks that they are valid and have a protocol. Otherwise, https:// is automatically added.

As soon as the user opens the addon's popup Auto Tab Opener looks for the stored domains using browser.storage.local.get and inserts new input fields by a for loop:

for (var i = 0, len = adressen.length; i < len; i++) {
    console.log(adressen[i]);
    var element = '<br><input placeholder="example.com" class="urlinput" type="text" value="' + adressen[i] + '"></input><i title="Add website" class="fas fa-minus-circle kreis"></i><a class="warnung">Invalid URL!</a>';
    $('#initialesfeld').prev('br').before(element);
}

The current website can be added by a button in the addon's popup if it has a valid URL:

chrome.tabs.query({'active': true, 'lastFocusedWindow': true}, function (tabs) {
    url = tabs[0].url;
    if(protocolcheck(url) == true){
        $('#initialesfeld').prev('br').before('<br><input placeholder="example.com" class="urlinput" type="text" value="' + url + '"></input><i title="Add website" class="fas fa-minus-circle kreis"></i><a class="warnung">Invalid URL!</a>');
        urlcheck();
    }
});

Clicking on "Reset" simply removes the addresses' variable from Firefox' storage.

The stored URLs are opened like this:

urls.forEach(function(item){
    if(protocolcheck(item) == true){
        var adresse = item;
    } else {
        var adresse = 'https://' + item;
    }
    chrome.tabs.create({ url: adresse });
});

They can also be pinned:

urls.forEach(function(item){
    if(protocolcheck(item) == true){
        var adresse = item;
    } else {
        var adresse = 'https://' + item;
    }
    chrome.tabs.create({ 
        url: adresse,
        pinned: true
    });
});

Restoring the URLs writes the textarea's value into the addresses' variable:

var urls = $('#urlarea').val();
urls = urls.split(',');
var adressen = JSON.stringify(urls);
browser.storage.local.set({ adressen });

Temporary installation for debugging

To install it temporarily, git-clone this project and choose the manifest.json by clicking on "Load temporary addon" on the Firefox about:debugging#/runtime/this-firefox page.
