Web Maker saves all your creations locally in your browser’s localStorage. But did you know you could export and save all of them as a JSON file? That exported JSON file can be imported back into Web Maker as well. In this blog post I’ll show you how.

Exporting

Here is how you export all your creations:

  1. Click on Open button to open the saved creations pane.
  2. Click on Export button.
  3. If this is the first time you are exporting, you’ll be asked for permission to manage downloads so that Web Maker can download the exported creations where you want. Click on Accept when asked.
  4. Choose the folder location where you want to download the export.

This will download a JSON file at the location you selected. This file contains all your saved creations.

Tip: You can select your Dropbox (other other cloud storage) folder to backup your creations.

Importing

The JSON file you export from Web Maker can be imported back into it. Why would you want to do that? Say you install Web Maker extension on a new computer and want to get back all the saved creations from other computer, importing is the way to go. Here is how you import:

  1. Click on Open button to open the saved creations pane.
  2. Click on Import button.
  3. Select the exported JSON file which you want to import.
  4. If you already have some creations from the list being imported, Web Maker will ask you if you want to overwrite them.

Done! You are ready to work on your stuff again!

Until next time.✌🏼
