Sorting Tumblrs you are following by their last activity

It seems, migration to GitLab stimulated me to code more in unusual for me languages and environments. First, it pushed me to do something in PowerShell: A short script to change audit rules on a file or a directory in Microsoft Windows.

Now, I started writing even more unexpected script: tfsort.js – Sort Tumblrs you are following by their last activity. So if you are Tumblr user and you are following blogs that are dead already for a long time, you can try to filter and unfollow them.

Someday it will be a Firefox plugin, maybe. But now you have to do everything yourself:

  1. Set English locale in your Tumblr settings
  2. Open a page with Tumblrs you are following
  3. Copy the tfsort.js source code into your Firefox Web Console: Menu -> Web Developer -> Web Console
  4. Press Enter to run it and wait for results!

It should work with Firefox, other browsers are untested.

Beware of unstable alpha stage code which must be run directly in the browser’s console, but as for me it’s a nice way to learn modern web-development technologies on the fly and create something more or less useless 🙂
