We wanted to create an extension that allows you to transfer your tabs between different browsers and devices.

What it does

Tab Transfer takes all your tabs, extracts the URLs, and sends a POST request to the API to create a new paste.

How we built it

Google and the really cool Cycle guy.

Challenges we ran into

We originally wanted to have a paste where you could simply click each link to open the ones you wanted. However, the only pastebin-like websites that supported this did not have APIs. We also originally used Pastebin, but found out it had a 20-post-per-day limit, necessitating us to switch to for its unlimited limit.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

  • We all learned how to make a Chrome extension.
  • It kinda actually works
  • First hackathon submission (minus 1 person)

What we learned

  • One member had no experience with Javascript
  • Learned how to use other webapps' APIs

What's next for Tab Transfer

Something we could try to change is to create our own Pastebin-implementation that supports clickable links.
