About

This basic website allows users to organize their StackOverflow favorites by tags, or search through favorites by keywords.

Currently it is still very basic and I will be adding much more functionality in the future. Proposed future additions include adding folders, improved search and the ability for users to save their organizational changes.

I must be missing something. How can this be installed for Firefox? –  Iterator Sep 6 '11 at 15:14
    
It is actually just a website, which is probably what is tripping you up. I guess I should change the "Download" section to "Link to App". If you want to host the app on your own website or if you want to run it from your local machine here is the link to the download file: github.com/apantev/StackOverflow-Favorites-Organizer/archives/… . –  Anton Sep 6 '11 at 15:49
    
It works, thanks! –  Iterator Sep 6 '11 at 18:20

Looks like this is now broken –  ScottEdwards2000 Jul 12 '12 at 20:52
    
@ScottEdwards2000 sorry about that, I finally got off my butt and got some real hosting for the app. antonpantev.com/stackfavorites –  Anton Jul 14 '12 at 15:05
    
The new link appears to crash. The webpage just displays An error has occurred: {"code":"ECONNREFUSED","errno":"ECONNREFUSED","syscall":"connect"} –  Brock Adams Aug 6 '12 at 1:10
    
@BrockAdams Fixed it. Sorry for the problems :( –  Anton Aug 6 '12 at 4:44
    
Thanks @Anton, but now I don't get any results, just the orange "throbber" (loader.gif), although the JSONP get returns 91 results. .. The error console shows: Error: TypeError: tags[tag].questions is undefined at line 110. –  Brock Adams Aug 6 '12 at 7:31
    
Thanks for letting me know, probably wouldn't have found the bug on my own. It should work now. –  Anton Aug 6 '12 at 19:37
    
Okay, seems to work now, thanks. –  Brock Adams Aug 7 '12 at 1:40
    
I checked github for this source for this StackApp, but it is not available there. Where can I find it? I am specifically looking for code on how to sort all the favourited questions of a user according to when they were "added". How do you do this? –  lifebalance Jan 21 at 16:53
    
@lifebalance I updated the github link sorry about that –  Anton Jan 22 at 6:56

Seems to work quite well. I do have a couple of suggestions:

  1. On the "organized into Tags" page, it is necessary to click on the tiny "+" sign to drop down the questions for the particular tag. Perhaps it could be extended to the entire row?
  2. Also, when a search term is not found, there is no visual feedback saying "search term was not found" or something similar to indicate that the search did indeed complete but returned nothing.

This is so freakin' AWESOME - thanks for building this! As far as I know this is the ONLY way to search your favorites now. A couple quick questions/suggestions:

  1. Any idea why it doesn't work in Firefox (I'm on v14). (works great in Chrome)

  2. Would you consider adding tag search like in the S.O. search engine (surrounded by brackets like [python])? The tag browse feature you have is cool but sometimes I want to search for a combination of tags and terms. Actually, if you REALLY wanted to maximize utility, since I don't always remember what tags are on my favorites, how about doing this: when you currently list the pages under the tag after I click on it, list the other tags that are also included ON JUST THOSE PAGES. Then I could browse easily for any combination of tags I desire - just like using "related tags" on S.O. (I realize that would be hard to build though because you would have to nest it to an arbitrary length, so I would just love to have tags in search and maybe just a tag cloud or list of all the tags in my favorites so I don't have to guess at names).

But anyway, these are just wish lists. I'm really really happy to just have a way to SEARCH! thanks again!
