A better diigo bookmarklet (diigolet)

What is the ‘diigolet’

The diigolet is a Diigo.com tool used to manage a user’s bookmarks. It is a bookmarklet, a bookmark stored in a browser that contains Javascript.
The original diigolet is here:


How is BetterDiigolet different ?

BetterDiigolet by default opens the “bookmark” menu from the diigolet toolbar, it fills in the description and clicks all recommended tags. All is left for the user is to click “Save Bookmark”.
If it’s used on a already bookmarked url, it will color the tags previously used in ‘green’. The new recommended tags will remain ‘blue’.
This is an easy way for the user to find out if the url has been bookmarked before.
By using better_diigolet.js one can save time with clicking though all the tags and filling in the bookmark’s description field.

How it’s built

Diigo’s diigolet is loading a js file named “diigolet_b_h_b.js” which in turns loads “diigolet.js”. diigolet.js contains jQuery v1.4.3.
BetterDiigolet loads everything in better_diigolet.js, jQuery has been replaced with v1.8.3
The downside is the missing “Loading Diigolet…” tooltip.

How to install it in Firefox

  1. Make sure the “Bookmarks Toolbar” is visible. If it is not, go to menu View > Toolbars.
  2. Drag this button: BetterDiigolet up to your Bookmarks Toolbar.
