A bookmarklet for jumping between dev and production
Here's a bookmarklet for jumping between different hosts while maintaining the same path. It’s really useful for navigating between the same pages on your development servers, staging servers, and productions servers.
I put the most useful text right at the end, so you can easily change it for any host you like! I have two variations of this bookmarklet in a folder in my bookmarks bar called “onLocal” and “onProd”.
If copy and paste isn’t your bag, then use this nifty tool to generate your own versions of the bookmarklet…
Enter a hostname and a title for your bookmarklet and drag the resulting link to your bookmarks bar:
Also, if you’d rather write your own bookmarklets, then give my bookmarklet generator a try.
