Dragon Age: Legends Gift Manager (Chrome Extension for Google+)

BSN user Haderach recently rolled out a release candidate for his Google Chrome browser extension, DAL Gift Manager. This tool was specifically developed to streamline the process of both sending and receiving gifts to and from your Google+ Dragon Age: Legends friends circle. If you keep a hefty roster to take care of the social aspect of this browser game, this tool could potentially save you from repetitive strain injury (all that clicking) while also saving you a lot of time.

A description of how it works by the author:

What It's Doing

The extension is really scrapping the page for all the 'Play now' urls that cause gift redemption. It then checks that gift against an internal store of already claimed gifts. If the gift hasn't been seen before, it opens a tab in the background to the gift and waits for it to display the succesful gift confirmation. After 15 seconds if nothing happens it assumes the page failed to load and continues on the list leaving the failed gift as unclaimed for a subsequent run. Then it moves onto the next url.

Because of the way it works, after you click the gift in the address bar you will have to keep that page open until the gift icon comes back into the address bar. After that you are free to navigate away from the notifications page, just don't disturb the tab that opened in the background. It will remove itself when everything is done.

Also, if nothing happens when you click the gift icon that means there are no gifts to be accepted.

And about the latest update (release candidate):

Well I couldn't go long without hacking on the extension again. I just really thought it would be useful to have some method of choosing the people that will be used in automatic gift sending. It took a bit of work, but you can now go to the circles page focus in on a circle or make handful of selections, click the page action in the address bar, and have those contacts used when auto sending gifts.

In addition, if you have no contacts selected, the extension will auto select all visible contacts that it has been setup to gift. This way you can fine tune who you really want to gift. The extension still auto adds people that send gifts to you.

I changed the placement of the gift status icons too to make the flow of the page look more natural. I was never a real fan of having it next to the 'Play now' text.
