Replicating project for your fact-checker

If you would like to create a similar plugin for your factchecker these are the steps you have to follow:

  1. Update src/manifest.json and package.json with description of your factchecker
  2. Define src/js/config.js configuration using src/js/config.js.template
  3. Override src/assets/icon* with your own icons
    • icon_gray is shown in task bar when there are no factchecked statements on the current website
  4. Modify src/views/* templates according to your needs
  5. Style your ratings in src/css/factual.css
    • Define colors and images for different factchecker-fact-mark-${fact.rating}
