Domain Swap: A Google Chrome Extension

December 08, 2013

When in the Course of human DOM events it becomes necessary for one people developer to dissolve the political bands DNS bindings which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature Moore and of Nature's Source Code’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mandeveloperkind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

In a normal development workflow your code can move through multiple development environments. Sometimes a coworker emails you a URL to a dev server but you want to check the same path on your local environment. Or maybe you want to more easily switch between your test servers and production.

We must declare our independence from the shackles of our development domains! For far too long have they taxed us.

Domain Swap is a Google Chrome extension that allows you to easily toggle between and manage different sets of domains. It was created by the inimitable John Hobbs with minor contributions from myself and Matt Steele.

It is also available on GitHub.
