Imacros to run from websites

Post by slamsal » Wed Feb 18, 2009 6:51 pm

This is what I want to accomplish:

I want to have a button in the website, click on a button, it will run imacro and show the results in the websites.

What do I need?
If you know website hosting that could install imacros and be able to run that would be great.
And, examples if there is any websites that has done this before.

Thank you!

AFAIK this is a Firefox only feature.

Basically you do this:

1. record macro
2. in the edit tab click share macro
3. sharing macro creates a link that represents your macro code. You can post this link as is: http://run.imacros.net/?code=VkVSU0lPTi ... NQPkx1Y2t5
but it is HUGE even for a short macro.
4. (optional) run the macro through a URL shortening service like tinyurl.com and you get this:

Hope this helps.
