A bookmarklet for Truecaller

In Uncategorized on January 21, 2016 at 11:24 pm
  • Right click on your bookmark bar and select ‘Add Page’
  • In Name box type + Truecaller
  • In URL box copy and paste the following

 javascript: (function () {function getSelectionText() {var selectedText = “”;if (window.getSelection) { selectedText = window.getSelection().toString(); } return selectedText};function OpenInNewTab(url) { var win = window.open(url, ‘_blank’); win.focus();};var doc = document;var text = getSelectionText();if(text){var href = ‘https://truecaller.com/in/’ + encodeURIComponent(text);OpenInNewTab(href);}})()

  • Select phone number text in any page
  • Click on the bookmark just created and see the magic 🙂
  • The above code works for indian numbers. If you want to use any other country number, you may need to change the https://truecaller.com/in/ to something similar. Its left as homework.

Let me know if you liked it 🙂
