A Table of contents gives readers visibility of the multiple sections that are part of your story as well as helping them easily jump to specific sections.


TOC Medium — A chrome extension that generates Table of Contents

Currently, the Medium editor doesn’t provide a way to generate a Table of contents, that’s why I decided to create a chrome extension that allows writers to do that.

It works by adding another action to Medium’s editor: “Add a Table of Contents”. Upon selection, the extension finds all the heading tags and creates a list with their titles and links.

It can be found in the Chrome web store:

The extension is open source, and the source code can be found in Github. Feel free to reach out with any feedback, issues or feature requests.

Thanks for reading and happy writing!

Take care and I’ll see you next time.
