Oxygen Custom Toolbar Plugin

Update: This plugin is no longer maintained or updated. This article is only for the archives.


One of the possible improvements that could be made in Oxygen is a way to quickly access the controls or buttons to add the various elements in the editor.

I have created a plugin that makes adding the elements in Oxygen a breeze.

Once installed and activated, it adds a thin bar centered and attached to the top edge of the browser which when hovered, pops down to show the controls.

Initial/closed state:

When hovered/open state:

Clicking a control button adds that element inside the currently selected parent container.

Moving the mouse away hides the bar.
