Writing your own add-on

Since 1.3, Chorus supports custom JavaScript add-ons.
Check out the official wiki for API documentation.
Although an official marketplace is not ready yet, you can publish your add-ons by submitting your files to the add-ons repository following the instructions given in its README.
In order to load an add-on, place the .js file inside the chorus/addons folder.

Creating your own theme

Chorus supports custom themes. If you want to create your own, create a folder into chorus/themes named as your theme's name.
In this folder, you have to create the following files:

  • {name}.css, to style the main view;
  • {name}-highlight.css to style keywords;
  • {name}-settings.css to style setting view;

Note: {name} must be the same as your folder's name.

To see the structure of a style file, take a look at this theme:

If you want to make it public, you can add it to the official themes repository following these guidelines.
