Puffer

Send your links to Buffer when reading on the Pocket Web-UI (formerly: Read-it-later).

What is Puffer?
Puffer is a Chrome extension that allows you to easily share links from the Pocket Web-UI to Buffer, a social media scheduling service. It grabs the article title and URL and sends it to the Buffer API, opening a new tab with the familiar Buffer dialog. This extension is in its early stages with plans to add new features like overlays and integration with other social services.

Summary

Pocket (formerly: Read-it-later) is a service for marking articles on the web to read them later. Buffer is a service to schedule your posts to your social-media-accounts easily (e.g. to Twitter).

But there is no way to share your links to buffer (or any other social-media-services) right from the Pocket-Web-User-Interface. Thats exactly what this extension does.

It grabs the arcticle-title and article-url and sends it to the buffer-API, opens a new tab and shows you the buffer-dialog you are already used to.

This is really the ultra-first version 0.001. If something doesn't work or you have suggestions let me know.

ROADMAP:

  • make an overlay over the article like the original buffer-extension (no new tabs)
  • make compatible to Chrome < v20 (due to "onMessage"-events currently)
  • integrate other social-services (facebook, twitter) directly
  • ...
