Idea to action: Tile this



Not many of my ideas are converted to a project, this one has seen its light last week. Though I haven't completed all the UI and features of my original vision, it is better to have one working idea than nothing.



Please find the source of this extension @ https://github.com/palaniraja/Tilethis

My original prototype for Tilethis










Download v0.1 to try it yourself.


@todo

  • Display image dimension (Google extension sample "Get image info" is useful to study how to fetch dimension from image)
  • Make it work with images in the background (eg., div background)
  • Nice UI


Merge requests are welcome.

I really liked the background image pattern used in testflightapp.com. It is so cool that I have replaced my all time favorite iPad-Safari-fabric texture to gray varient given below.
