Classic New Tab Page for Chrome

Build

Classic New Tab Page for Chrome is using the build system Ant.

Base requirements

Optional requirements

To build the Chrome extension it is required to be able to run executable, which can be done in Wine on Linux or on a Windows computer.

It is possible to build the unpacked version of the Chrome extension without the need to run executables:

  • ant copy-chrome -- Makes the required files to build the extension file (.crx) ready in the build directory.

Signing

The certificate for signing the extensions have to be provided by yourself and have to be placed in:

  • /.cert/chrome/

It should be noted that the ant build will create a new signing key for Chrome if it's missing from /.cert/chrome/ (Running executables is required).

Ant

The build system is made in ant and require ant and java to be installed.

  • ant all -- Cleans and builds the packaged Chrome extension (.crx).
  • ant devnumber -- Increment the build number.
  • ant chrome -- Build the packaged Chrome extension (.crx).
  • ant dev -- Build the Chrome extension as a folder for development.
