Today solving, some of Network Security questions, I came across few complex/ exponential calculations, which forced me to use calculator. Till now, I was using in-bulit OS calculator. But, since GATE is just on 20 days, I thought it’s best time to get used to with GATE virtual calculator. I found exact calc on official Mock test at GATE 2019 website. But, each time switching to new tab, accessing that mock and all those steps….that was quite annoying. So, I thought it would be useful if I could port same calc on each GO question page. It took me around ~2Hrs of coding and I finally made Chrome extension for it. Here’s how it looks:
There’s a ’Show Calc’ button at very top left, just before GO logo.
And after clicking on ’Show Calc’ button:
Due to time constraint, I build very basic extension, just focusing on functionality rather styling and testing for all screen size. To avoid overlapping, I made calculator draggable.
I’ve uploaded code to same ‘Chrome extension for PiP mode for questions’ github repo.
Steps to install Chrome extension:
- Go to https://github.com/PiratedVirus/PiP-mode-for-GO-questions
- Click on clone/download zip.
- Unzip the folder.
- Head over to ‘chrome://extensions’ or open extensions page from menu bar and enable developer mode.
- Drag and drop unzip folder.
- Enjoy :)
If you find any bug, feel free to pull request over github repo.
Hope this helps! :)
