Google Chrome Samples
Samples tied to new functionality in Google Chrome.
Each sample corresponds to an entry in https://www.chromestatus.com/features, and using that interface is currently the best way to browse.
SAMPLE_STARTING_POINT as a starting point.
While it's possible to simply create a standard set of HTML/JS/CSS files within the new directory, you can take advantage of the Jekyll-based templating system to handle most of the boilerplate. Any files that start with a front matter block will be templated, and any other files will be served verbatim.
If you're still unsure, two canonical samples that use templates are:
Follow the Using Jekyll with Pages guide to mimic the production Jekyll environment during local development.
Once complete, please file a pull request against the
gh-pages branch with your sample.
It's ideal when filing a pull request @-mention the relevant engineer who worked on adding the
feature into Chrome, to solicit their feedback and ensure that the sample properly describes
the functionality. The email address of the engineer who worked on a given feature can be found in
the corresponding https://www.chromestatus.com/features entry. If you're unsure of the GitHub
username corresponding to the engineer, an alternative is to email them a link to the pull request
and ask for feedback directly.
Style / Linting / CI
Linting can be performed via
npm run lint (make sure to
npm install first).
Various IDEs offer real-time ESLint integration, and using those integrations that can help avoid errors before anything gets checked in.
Travis CI is currently being used to verify that the Jekyll build completes successfully and that linting passes without errors.
