mycraigslist

This is a greasemonkey script to save and manage craigslist posts that interest you. When visiting a craigslist page you can save a page and then later visit this page to manage all your saved pages. This doesn't use a remote server, so everything is saved locally. One drawback is that there is a single-user model -- i.e. there is a list of saved postings per browser.

In its current form you need to be running greasemonkey on firefox. If you know how to install these, here is the script.

   mycraigslist.user.js

Usage

Once installed, here's how you use this thing.

  1. Whenever you visit a craigslist posting, you will see an extra link at the top of the page that will save this posting to your list of saved postings.
  2. After you save a page, you'll be able to remove with the same (but differently-named) link
  3. After saving one or more postings, these postings will appear green in the subject listing pages.
  4. Also, after saving one or more postings you can visit http://jeffpalm.com/mycraigslist/manage to view and manage your saved postings.

Installation

To use you must be running greasemonkey on firefox. So, I'll mention both.

  1. Install firefox.
  2. Install greasemonkey.
  3. Go to the link mycraigslist.user.js a click the Install button in the upper right. If you don't see this button you haven't installed greasemonkey correctly -- in which case return to step #2.
