Resource Finder



Easily search Bower for external file links to use in CodePen, JSFiddle, JSBin demos.


When creating a new front-end demo in your preferred demo-creator web app, i.e. CodePen, JSFiddle, JSBin, etc, and you want to use an external JavaScript or CSS library that isn't bundled with that web app; what do you do?

- Leave the web app
- Search GitHub/Bower/NPM/CDN for that asset
- Find the right link to the asset
- Copy the url
- Come back to the web app
- Paste the asset url into the respective text input for external resources in the web app

It can get pretty tedious if you want to use a couple of different external resources for one demo.

How Resource Finder helps:

- In the web app, open extension popup
- type resource name
- click Copy-to-Clipboard button next to resource link
- Paste the resource url into the respective text input for external resources

Never leave the web app and always get the latest version of the resource.

Additional Features:
- autocomplete past searches
- caches last search results

Future Features:
- searches NPM (and other package repos?)
