Stop me if this sounds familiar.
- Hey look, a Magento Connect extension, let’s try it out
- Oh, right, I need to be logged in to get the extension key
Where’s that password again? [knocks over pills]
Waiting for Magento site to log me in
There are, of course (I assume), reasons for Magento to force a sign-in before letting you grab a free extension key. That said, four plus years (!) in it’s still one of the things that annoys me about the platform. So here’s a bookmarklet that’ll extract the Connect 2.0 key from an extension page, even if you’re not logged in.
Visit the bookmarklet landing page, drag the
Connect Key link to your bookmarks bar, click on it while you’re looking at a Magento Connect page, and a text field with a link will be appended at the top of the page. Tested in Chrome/OS X, should work elsewhere, bug reports welcome Your millage mary very, PROVIDED “AS IS”, WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, etc.
