home > greasemonkey scripts >

Greasemonkey is an add-on for the Firefox web browser, that allows you to run "scripts", or little programs that alter the web pages you view. See Installing Greasemonkey for more information.

Etsy's development team are working hard to bring out new features for the site, but there's only so much they can do. They're going to focus on features that bring the most benefit to the most users. These scripts are provided as examples of things that can be done without needing Etsy to change anything, but which (hopefully) make the user experience better and more efficient. Less time spent administering your Etsy business, more time spent making things.

I've shied away from writing any scripts that apply extra load on the Etsy servers by pulling in data feeds, etc. - the idea is to make Etsy more useful, not to cripple the site for everyone by dragging the servers into the mire.

If there's something you think would be useful, let me know. There's no guarantee I'll do it (or that it's even possible...) but if it sounds fun and useful I'll have a go.

IE users: For those of you unwilling or unable to run Firefox and Greasemonkey, I have created some bookmarklets (programs that run from your Bookmarks or Favorites menu) that will do some of what the scripts below will do. These will run quite happily in IE and other browsers.

Please note: If, in the future, you find your Etsy pages looking strange, or things aren't working properly, turn off your Greasemonkey scripts (click on the monkey icon at the bottom right of your screen - it'll go grey when Greasemonkey is disabled - then reload the page). Chances are Etsy will have changed something and/or there's a bug in my code, and that's my problem, not Etsy's. Please don't mail Etsy saying things are broken (unless you're sure it's Etsy and not Greasemonkey). Do let me know and I'll do my best to fix it.
