chromium-web-store

This extension brings the following functionality to ungoogled-chromium (and other forks that lack web store support):

  • Allows installing extensions directly from chrome web store.
  • Automatically checks for updates to your installed extensions and displays them on the badge. Example Image

Usage

  • If you wish to install extensions directly instead of just downloading the crx, you must change the flag chrome://flags/#extension-mime-request-handling to Always prompt for install.
  • Available extension updates will display on the badge, click to install them (note that non-webstore extensions may need to be installed manually even if you have the flag set.)

Installation

  1. Go to chrome://extensions and enable developer mode (toggle in top right).
  2. Download the .crx from Releases and drag-and-drop it onto the chrome://extensions page.

If drag-and-dropping does not work, try this workaround:

  1. Download the .crx from releases and extract the contents to a folder.
  2. Visit chrome://extensions/ and turn on developer mode (toggle in top right).
  3. Click Load unpacked and select the directory you extracted the crx to.

Options Notes

  • Right click the badge and choose Options from the context menu or access them via chrome://extensions.
  • "Web Store" extensions refer to any that were obtained from the Chrome Web Store, despite displaying Source: Not from Chrome Web Store when checking extension details.
  • Please read the note in Release 1.4 if you wish to use the import/export feature.

If you wish to help with localization, follow these steps:

  1. Create a directory in _locales named any supported locale code.
  2. Copy _locales/en/messages.json to your newly created directory and edit the "message" fields as necessary, you don't need to change anything else.
  3. Submit a PR or open an issue with your translation and I will merge it.

If you are a chrome extension developer...

and do not have your extension listed in the Chrome Web Store, you can still enable updates via chromium-web-store by hosting an update manifest file; see updates.xml in this repo for an example. You must also specify a url to access this file in your extension's manifest.json under the update_url field; again, see manifest.json in this repo for an example.

For deployment

See #28 and managed_storage.json
