Material Netgear Genie

This project's aim is to enhance Netgear Genie's interface by injecting custom stylesheets into its web interface via a Google Chrome or Firefox extension.

This redesign is hugely inspired by Google's Material design guidelines.

How does it work?

Quite straight-forward actually: injector.js file is injected by either Chrome or Firefox inside the tab. Its aim is to inject the necessary resources - style.css, content-script.js, MaterialDesignIcons stylesheet and Roboto font.

We use SCSS (compiled CSS) to override Netgear Genie's styles alongside with some Javascript when necessary.

That's it!

This project relies on the following resources:

How about security?

That's a legitimate question: you can browse Javascript files (injector.js and content-script.js) in this repo or directly from Chrome's debugger tools - to see that their sole purpose is to manipulate the DOM to apply some styling that couldn't be set in CSS.

How to contribute

Do not hesitate to open issues or to create pull requests against the master branch! The main project is based on SCSS to build CSS files: you'll need an appropriate compiler alongside with some Chrome extensions notions.

Note: we're using the EditorConfig standard to supply coding rules for this project, learn more about it here.

Warning: this is not meant to be perfect. Netgear Genie's UI is quite difficult to style, and some changes aren't possible for now. I'd rather keep this project maintainable and compatible with upcoming releases of Netgear Genie than doing some Javascript black magic.
