GOV.UK Toolkit for Chrome and Firefox

Allows easy switching between the different GOV.UK environments and content representations. Inspired by the govuk-bookmarklets.

Installation

The extension is downloadable on the Chrome web store and AMO for Firefox.

If you don't want to install from your browser's web store for security reasons, you can install a local non-self updating copy.

For Chrome:

  1. Download the source from GitHub and unzip.
  2. Visit chrome://extensions in your browser.
  3. Ensure that the Developer mode checkbox in the top right-hand corner is checked.
  4. Click Load unpacked extension… to pop up a file selection dialog.
  5. Navigate to src in the extension directory, and select it.
  6. Visit any page on GOV.UK.

Source: Getting Started: Building a Chrome Extension.

For Firefox:

Extensions installed using the following instructions are only active while Firefox is open and are removed on exit. Permanently-active extensions can be only be installed from packages signed by Mozilla.

  1. Download the source from GitHub and unzip.
  2. Visit about:debugging in your browser.
  3. Click Load Temporary Add-on to pop up a file selection dialog.
  4. Navigate to src in the extension directory, and select manifest.json.
  5. Visit any page on GOV.UK.

Source: Temporary installation in Firefox.

Running the tests

In development, it's easiest to run:

$ bundle exec rake jasmine

This will start a server on http://localhost:8888/ that serves the tests.

You can also run the Jasmine test suite in slower "headless" mode with:

$ bundle exec rake jasmine:ci

Releasing the extension

  1. Update the version in manifest.json
  2. Run rake build
  3. Create a Pull Request with the new package committed
  4. Upload newly created package in /build to the Chrome web store. You will need to have been added to the govukdevelopers google group (at the time of writing, @andysellick, and @alex-ju).
  5. Upload newly created package in /build to Firefox Add-ons. Account details in the 2nd line password store.
