The extension is structured as a monorepo with the following sub-packages:

  • commons: mostly typescript definitions
  • background: parses pages and stores relevant data in the builtin browser database (IndexedDB)
  • popup: toolbar appearance
  • admin: front-end for the background capabilities
  • scrape-static-content: builtin scenario
  • scrape-dynamic-content: builtin scenario
  • extension: builds the extension files and runs a comprehensive suite of integration tests

You can find technical tidbits in each sub-package readme file.
