Project that mimics the chrome extension Momentum. It is not intended for distribution of any kind; it is mearly a demonstration of skill using web technologies for potential recruiters.


After reading this article by Jungwon Sea, I was interested in making a Chrome Extension; his explanation alone was sufficient to get started. However, I quickly found that I wanted to mock as much of the application as possible, so I decided to add some frameworks to the project to help scale up. Some weeks later, I ended up here. Thank you for taking a look at my project.

Code Style

Developed in Visual Studio Code with the Vetur extension with most of the styling set to "Prettier".

  • Linted with Eslint
  • Code styled with Prettier


  • Persistent browser storage per Google account
  • Random High Quality photos from
  • Todos
  • Favorite Links
  • Weather
  • Quotes
  • Daily Focus

Roadmap Features

  • Creating a server to process more complicated requests to speed up User activity.
  • Creating a database to securely store user information.
  • Secure transfer of information with implementation of JWT or Cookie protected API calls to back-end (server).
  • Other content-related features to provide unification of online services.

Code Example

Project setup

This project was created using Vue CLI 3 as a starting point and then adding the Vue-Cli-Plugin-Browser-Extension plugin to generate files necessary to develop a Google Chrome extension.

Vue CLI 3

Please follow the documentation at Vue CLI 3 Installation to properly install your project.

My .vuerc project configuration:

"Chrome Extension": {
      "useConfigFiles": true,
      "plugins": {
        "@vue/cli-plugin-babel": {},
        "@vue/cli-plugin-pwa": {},
        "@vue/cli-plugin-eslint": {
          "config": "prettier",
          "lintOn": [
        "@vue/cli-plugin-unit-mocha": {},
        "@vue/cli-plugin-e2e-cypress": {}
      "router": true,
      "routerHistoryMode": false,
      "vuex": true,
      "cssPreprocessor": "sass"

After the project is finished installing, change directories and run one of the "How To Use" npm commands to begin development.

How to Use


  1. Zip this project root folder and save from Github
  2. Unzip folder and open a code editor (Shell, TextEditor, IDE) of your choice at the root folder
  3. Run the following command to get your Node_Modules
npm install
  1. Run the following command to begin development)
