Well your wishes have been fulfilled. Over on GitHub is a page ready designed for you to use!

It's my SEAuthentication repro.

What does it do?

How does it work?

The essential code is below. There is a load of CSS to go with it.

  <p id="token">
      window.onload = function() {
        var url = location.href
        var index = url.search(/access_token=/g)
        var access_token = url.substring(index+13,index+37)
        if (index > 18) {
          document.getElementById("token-box").value = access_token;
          document.getElementById("access-token-c").style.display = 'block';
    <p id="token-description" class="token-title">
      Your access token is:<br>
  <input id="token-box" type="text" name="token">
  <div id="copy-box" class="token-copy">
    Copy with Ctrl+C

    Why not just have your app/script get the token automatically as needed? Commented May 26, 2015 at 21:38

    @BrockAdams Python script. Much easier this way :)
