Zula Links

A web project from LaunchRiot

Some Background

Zula is a team communication app that some friends and I recently started using for an up-and-coming project. The mobile app is in beta and the web app is in alpha, and while Zula has some great core features, it still has a bit to go. I for one am excited to see it grow. On of the great features in Zula is the ability to send emails directly to Spaces ("Spaces" are groups you form in Zula to share messages, files, polls and more).

My team and I want to be able to rapidly share links (our project is in a heavy research phase) and there isn't really a good way to do that in Zula yet. But what about emailing your space with links? Easy as pie! Wouldn't that be even better with a bookmarklet? Yes! So now you can generate your own.

How to Make a Zula Links Bookmarklet

First fill in a Bookmarklet Name. This is what will appear in your browser's toolbar. A name link "Zula Links" will probably work well. You can always change the name later from within your browser.

Next, fill in your Zula Space's Email Name. If your Space is called "Secret Sauce", this would probably be "secret.sauce". No need to include the "@zu.la" part, we have that covered for you. To find your Space's Email Name, go to your Space's settings page from within web.zu.la.

Finally, drag the generated link up to your browser's bookmark bar and drop it as you would for any other bookmark.

Whenever you're on a website you want to share, click on your bookmarklet and it will open your default mail client, prepopulating the To: field and the body.
