Backtick Example Command

This is an example command for Backtick. A Backtick command consists of some executable JavaScript and a bit of metadata in JSON.

Here are the required steps to create a command:

  1. Update This readme with a brief explanation of what your command does or delete this.

  2. Create a new Gist with a command.js and command.json file, or simply fork this one.

  3. Write your JavaScript in command.js. This will be injected into and executed on the page the user is currently on when they run it.

  4. Add some metadata to the command.json file:

  • name: The name of the command.
  • description: A short description about what the command does.
  • icon (optional): A link to a 60x60 PNG icon.
  • link (optional): A link to a related home page.
  1. Copy the ID of your Gist from the URL. (The ID of this example command is 6859173)

  2. Paste the ID into the custom commands field in the Backtick settings. You can easily access the settings by clicking the Backtick icon on the command execution console.

You can suggest to add one of your own commands to the list of commands in the Backtick (approved) library, just create a new issue with a link to your command's Gist.
