Botinder is a Tinder client for Google Chrome. Tinder is mobile-only but it's way more convenient to write and browse profiles (with big photos) on your computer, so I made this Chrome extension.


Botinder imitates the official Tinder application

  • Like / Dislike results
  • Tinder instant messaging
  • Display user profile

And more

  • Automaticaly like results


Botinder is online since september 1st

  • 1542 users
  • ~450 daily active users
  • 805 840 likes
  • 67 123 dislikes
  • 19 000 matchs
  • 8988 posts
  • 13 notes, average ~5/5

Botinder had a rapid growth and I try to regularly deliver new features and improvements. I hope Tinder won't take this too badly.


Get Botinder on the chrome web store


Front-end stack:

  • Ember.js
  • jQuery
  • Handlebars.js
  • normalize.css


The client is built in JavaScript with Ember (which is a little harder to learn than Angular but helps keep the code clean and organized).

request on Tinder api,

function request(path, method, data, options) {
  return $.ajax({
    url: '' + path,
    type: method,
    data: data,
    beforeSend: function(request) {
      if (path !== 'auth') {
        request.setRequestHeader('X-Auth-Token', token);
        request.setRequestHeader('os-version', 19);
        request.setRequestHeader('app-version', 759);
        request.setRequestHeader('platform', 'android');
  }).fail(function(error) {
    if (error.status == 401) {
      Botinder.openWelcomeTab(options ? options.tabId : null);

chrome.webRequest.onBeforeSendHeaders.addListener(function(details) {
  for (var i = 0; i < details.requestHeaders.length; ++i) {
    if (details.requestHeaders[i].name === 'User-Agent') {
      details.requestHeaders[i].value = 'Tinder Android Version 3.2.1';
  return {requestHeaders: details.requestHeaders};
}, {urls: ["*://*"]}, ["blocking", "requestHeaders"]);
