Chrome extension to highlight text on a page, based on a set of rules

Please read fully before bidding.

We need a Chrome extension loads in 2 sets of rules and based on those rules, highlights text on a web page. Budget is $200.

First set of rules: comes from a data structure that should be coded into the extension. We will provide an excel sheet with the full set of data, it is about 350 lines of data. Each line includes a low value, a high value, and a description. Example lines: (from, to, description)

1024, 1279, Cyrillic

8352, 8399, Currency Symbols

The extension must examine every character on the page. If the character is in the Unicode range of 1024-1279 (as example), then that character should be highlighted. Like in image1

On mouse-over of the highlighted character, hint-text “Character set: Cyrillic” should be shown


Second set of rules: comes from a text file from a URL. This URL will be hard-coded in the extension. There should be an option to refresh/reload and get updated data from the server.

The file will have a list of (1) regular expressions (2) search/replace values (3) comments (4) Section headers

Regular expressions are in the format: RE={expression},{Substitution}

RE example: RE={(?i)\bEngr\.{0,1}(?=\W|$)},{Engineer}

(you don't need to how to create regular expressions, just how to apply them)

Search/Replace are in the format: SR={search value},{replace value}

SR example: SR={Prez},{President}

In the file, there are section headers in the format of: [section header]

Example headers might be: [names] or [abbreviations]

Load and store the regular expressions and search/replace in data structures, grouped by section headers.

; any line (like this) that starts with a semi-colon is a comment, ignore it

Here are some sample lines of the file


; this is a comment for the company section

SR={Force com},{[login to view URL]}

SR={salesforce com},{[login to view URL]}


; this is a comment for the title section

RE={^Exec },{Executive }

RE={^Coord },{Coordinator }


SR={Admin Assistant},{Administrative Assistant}

SR={Cocoordinator},{Co Coordinator}

When a web page loads process all the regex and search/replace and highlight matching text. Regex must be globally applied, so you must apply on each set of characters within a "sentence". Determining the boundaries of a sentence is part of a challenge. In text, it may be period or comma, in a table, it may be the end of the table row. This is the only unknown that needs some experimenting.

Image2 is an example web page when one of the terms is “accounts payable”

Mouse-over of the highlighted text should show the val2 in the SR{val1 },{val2} and the val2 in RE={val1},{val2}. The hint text should show "option: val2"

Pressing the extension icon should open a simple interface that has

(1) An activate/deactivate button (image 3)

(2) Uniciode blocks and each [section header] with a checkbox, so they can be activated,/deactivated (add some space between Unicode blocks and section headers

X Unicode blocks

X [names]


X [Location]

(3) button to refresh the file and reload data from the server

Highlighting text must work on sites like salesforce and other CRM’s. If there are issues with refreshing the page, a button for refresh may need to be placed on the page to refresh the current view.

Note: the Regex and Search/Replace must work globally on the page. The Search/Replace can be run on the entire text of the page and all matches should be highlighted. We are targeting structured data pages like CRM systems, so delimiters may need to be found between each successive element. We will provide logins to test sites. To show that you have read this entire posting, put the name of your favorite music group/artist as the first word in your bid.

Note: we will provide an extension that highlights target text, and has on/off button.
