Adobe doesn't make this very straightforward, and I've not had much success packaging and signing extensions.

1. Download repo, unzip and move folder into the extensions folder


Win: C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Adobe\CEP\extensions Mac: /Library/Application Support/Adobe/CEP/extensions


Win: C:\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\CEP\extensions Mac: ~/Library/Application Support/Adobe/CEP/extensions

you may have to create folder if it doesn't already exist

2. Set PlayerDebugMode to 1

Win: regedit > HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/Adobe/CSXS.9, (CSXS.8 for CC 2018) then add a new entry PlayerDebugMode of type "string" with the value of "1".

Mac: In the terminal, type: defaults write com.adobe.CSXS.9 PlayerDebugMode 1 (CSXS.8 for CC 2018) (The plist is also located at /Users/USERNAME/Library/Preferences/com.adobe.CSXS.9.plist)

May require restart or log-out/in
