Create an interesting bookmark (favorites) Manager – cross platform desktop application f-cursor

Time:2022-5-19

There are many bookmark management tools or website platforms on the Internet, but it is not easy to choose an appropriate one. In the past few years of work and study, I have always had this hard demand. How to manage your website list offline has become an essential thing to improve work and learning efficiency. Using the networked platform, once the website is closed or the network is bad, there will be no data and it is not convenient to manage. Although bookmarks similar to Google browser’s own bookmarks have been very easy to use and even have remote synchronization function, in order to better save the data to the local machine, they will never be lost and can be managed conveniently and quickly. I have developed a self-use desktop application f-cursor, which is convenient for offline management of collected web pages.

Let me specifically talk about the design and development ideas. First, refer to the bookmark management function of Google Chrome. This is a screenshot on my own computer:

Because of this hard demand, I designed a bookmarking application (web URL management / collection) that can be managed without the Internet, which solved my problem. The official version has been released and supports Mac OS and windows systems. The following figure shows the basic workflow of f-cursor:

Implementation technology:

The application is mainly based on react, electron and node. Amateur developers and web-based gods can ignore:) give me support and advice.

Next, I will give a brief introduction to the whole application
F-cursor is a cross platform application that supports Mac and windows systems. It is used to manage your own network favorites, permanently save data, and meet users’ URL collection needs.

Main functions:

  • Offline support and fast response speed
  • Easy data persistence
  • Get remote resources to local database
  • Category management and list block management
  • Simple drag and drop sorting
  • Export an independent HTML file, and you can use favorites in any operating system without app
  • Support importing database packages
  • Support quick search URL and site name
  • Judgment of URL validity and repeatability
  • Automatically extract remote resources, such as icons
  • In the future, I will continue to improve its functions to better improve my work efficiency. And try more interesting things. I hope this open source application can bring you some use.
