SharePoint developer bookmarklets

Tired of navigating through the SharePoint jungle just to get to Site Settings, Style Library or the Master Page and Page Layouts Gallery? Remember this moment, because it's the last time you've done it. Proudly introducing: the SharePoint developer bookmarklets.

Bookmarklets are tiny pieces of JavaScript residing in your favorites. While bookmarklets are heavily used by various social sites, I really haven't seen anyone using them for any developer purpose.

While working on various projects I've been creating bookmarks to different places within that specific site: Site Settings, Style Library, Web Part Gallery - just to keep myself of clicking a few times from going to that particular location. The biggest downside of that approach was that these bookmarks were bounded to one project: as you know each bookmark begins with http(s), so you cannot create a relative bookmark. But then I thought: why not creating SharePoint bookmarklets?

SharePoint 2007 Bookmarklets

Below you'll find some of the bookmarklets I've made. You can use them by simply dragging and dropping the links onto your bookmarks bar (in IE6 right mouse button on the link > Add to Favorites... > Create In > Links). If you have any other ideas for new bookmarklets: let me know so I will add it here. Like this we will be sure that the SharePoint community is now even more productive!
