Given the recent interest in progressive web apps, this experimental project investigates whether it is feasible to automatically port Chrome Apps to web sites that run offline in Chrome and other modern browsers.


Extract the code into a folder. Install dependencies with pip and npm:

$ pip install -r requirements.txt && npm install


./ config -i config.json
./ convert -c config.json my-chrome-app/ my-web-app/

This will convert an unpackaged Chrome App my-chrome-app/ into a progressive web app my-web-app/ and generate a conversion report inside a subdirectory of my-web-app/ (depending on the configuration options you set).

For more detailed documentation, see the manual.

Running Tests

Running all tests:


Running Python tests only:

./ py

Running specific Python tests:

./ py module_test
./ py module_test.TestClass
./ py module_test.TestClass.test_function

Running JavaScript tests only:

The JavaScript tests assume you have Chrome and Firefox (version 45 or greater). If you want to run the tests on different browsers, edit karma.conf.js.
