On this page I am publishing my own bookmarklets. I’m trying to make sure they follow the usual programming standards, but you should know that I’m usually only testing them with Firefox, so I don’t really know if they work in other browsers…
The following bookmarklets insert text into text fields (input or textarea) at the current cursor position:
This bookmarklet inserts the current date at the cursor position in the format “dd.MM.yyyy”.
If you need any other format, type a format string, select it and then click the bookmarklet.
The following format codes are understood:
- dd = day
- MM = month (note: capital letters!)
- yy or yyyy = year (2 or 4 digits)
- hh = hour
- mm = minutes (note: lower-case letters)
- ss = seconds
- S = microseconds
To create a bookmarklet, simply create a new bookmark and copy-paste the following code as the “URL”:
You can test the function here:
