I’ve been blogging on Medium for the past three months, and throughout that time I’ve discovered several fantastic chrome extensions that are assisting me with my writing. As a result, I’ve chosen to write about them in order to share my experience.
These extensions should be utilized by every Medium writer since they make it easier to produce articles, fix language, modify the tone, generate a table of contents, display statistics, and more. Let’s take a look at each one separately.

This extension adds a new 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.
Once created the TOC won’t be updated, if headings change, a new TOC will need to be generated.
