Expired To Be 1.4 Released

Expired To Be‘ is a Chrome extension available on the Chrome Web Store.

This Chrome browser extension allows you to enter expiration dates with ‘alarms’ (measured primarily in days) for any items you’d like to be reminded of.

New features added in X2B 1.4:

  – You can export your existing expiration items.

  – You can import over 500 expiration items (the app will automatically walk through saving each item from the list you provide).

  – I’ve also completed refactoring to enable a SPA version of the app that will work in any browser (no extension required). However, it will take a little time to implement a local ‘alarm’ interface, and to implement an optional (and opt-in) Web/Desktop Notifications system. Stay tuned for X2B 2.0!

How it Works: The Expired To Be Chrome extension will provide notification reminders at a time of your choosing (which is the actual expiration date, minus your ‘lead time’). The primary notification for when an item expires is a number count that will show in the extension’s icon (in the Chrome toolbar).

Expired To Be is also open source on GitHub. Issue submissions and PR’s are welcome.

    Thanks! I actually don't do web development anymore (no one would hire me after 2 years, and I suck at interviews, so I've gone back to college).

    But I do still try to keep all my software updated (e.g., when security flaws are identified via GitHub); primarily the ones I use myself, such as this one (Expired To Be). It was a fun project to create, and I enjoy keeping a few items' expiration dates stored like aspirin, one-a-day's, and hot chocolate. These types of things expire at such odd dates.

    I do need to blog wrt my career path adjustment, but will likely hold off until I see how I do in my first semester of college. 🙂

    I've also been working on an interactive website, but had to put it on hold as courses just began, and I already have a ton of homework. :/
