Import/export of categorization rules

The categorization initial setting is nice, but maybe there could be a way for users to share with each other their settings so that one could pick from another user’s configuration. Maybe there could be some sort of profiles for different types of users (programmers, graphic designers, writers, gamers, etc.)

Obviously this would be an opt-in type of feature, privacy first.

Good idea!

Maybe add “profiles” for categorization which you can easily switch between.

Then add the ability to download/export a categorization profile as a file in json format and add the ability to import new ones so they become easy to share.

I would really like the ability to just opt in to send my categories to an anatomized aggregate of classifications. That way the program can suggest rules for you to add based on what other users group window titles together as. Also it could suggest rules to create based on your window history and what the rest of the users have grouped those windows with what categories.


Yes, nice hint. I would use the import/export option mainly for backup my config!

After Firefox decided to do some weird reset thing over night (all my pinned tabs are gone) and I lost all my categories I think this would be a cool feature to have! Keep up the good work!

That’s a great point. We’re currently working on moving the storage of categories to the server, after that we will implement some sort of export/import functionality.


that would be fantastic for lazy people like me :upside_down_face:

would be nice for sharing conf (or a part of) with work team

If you will make “profiles” for categorization, maybe also allow the user to schedule which profile to use for a weekends/weekdays or day/night? Although, the in the Activity Dashboard, we can only view the Activities in Day/Week/Month. So this might require more work, but I’m just sharing an Idea. :slight_smile:
