SilverStripe developer bookmarklets

Bookmarklets image

Here are some handy dynamic bookmarklets for your browser for one click access to things like rebuilding the database, flushing the cache and accessing the CMS!

Here are some simple javascript browser bookmarklets to save a little time during SilverStripe development.


Just drag the links to the bookmarks bar of your browser to install.

SS:Dev Mode

How to use

If you have a silverstripe website open in your browser (live or development), just click the relevant bookmarklet to quickly access the CMS, flush the template cache, rebuild the database etc. for that site. The /CMS, /Dev and /Build sections of the website are opened in new windows while Flush and Dev Mode simply add the relevant URL parameter to the page you're viewing and reload the page.


Update 11 Apr '12: Utilise base tag as per Jedateach's suggestion
Update 12 Apr '12: Fallback to if base tag isn't available (i.e. in 'Dev' interface)

    What a great idea. Thanks heaps for sharing Jono!

    A welcomed improvement would be to make use of the base tag, allowing for urls such as http://localhost/mysite/

    Nette Idee, Bookmarklet auch zur Verwendung in Arbeit erstellen. Holen Sie sich weitere Bookmarklets auf Kamagra
