Mturk Engine is a free and open source user script for Chrome & Firefox that enables you to be more productive on Amazon's Mechanical Turk work platform. You install it with one of the download links above and then navigate to https://worker.mturk.com/?mturkengine while logged in to use it. Mturk Engine brings everything you do on Amazon's Mechanical Turk work platform into a single page. You can search for HITs, accept HITs, add HITs to be auto accepted, monitor your queue, monitor your dashboard, keep track of all the HITs you've submitted and their statuses, and return HITs all in a single browser tab without ever waiting for a full page reload.
Why use Mturk Engine? What does it do that other tools don't?
1. It's fast
Mturk Engine uses the latest web technologies to handle large volumes of rapidly changing data. That means Mturk Engine won't slow down even when your hit database has tens of thousands of entries or after you've blocked tens of thousands of requesters and HITs.
2. It's powerful
Mturk Engine combines much of the functionality of other tools like Hit Scraper, Panda Crazy, and Hit Database into a single tool. This saves time because you're not bouncing between multiple different browser tabs to manage your different scripts. This also allows for integration between features, such as being able to see all the work you've done for a requester in your search results.
3. It's easy to use
Mturk Engine's interface is intuitive and clear. You (hopefully) won't need to read a manual to find out what a button or setting does. Mturk Engine's design abides by many of the principles laid out in Shopify's Polaris documentation such as "empower but don't overwhelm" and "be polished but not ornamental." Accessibility is also a top priority. If something is difficult to read or a color difficult to see, feel free to post an issue on Github.
Installation & Usage
You'll need a userscript manager to use Mturk Engine. If you're using Chrome download TamperMonkey. Firefox users: Mturk Engine is not compatible with Greasemonkey, use TamperMonkey for Firefox instead. If you already have a userscript manager you're good to move on to the next step.
