Post links to Slack from Chrome

  • open your chrome extensions
Settings -> Tools -> Extensions or chrome://extensions/
  • Drag .crx file into page and drop it
  • Complete the slacklink options through either the extensions page or by right-clicking on the icon - you must complete Domain and API Key
  • You can now post a link direct to your chosen slack channel by clicking the slack icon

A note on security

This extension was created for fun (and because I had a hangover). It uses localstorage to store the details you're using including your incoming webhook API key. This means the security is only as safe as your chrome install - If you're concerned about this, don't use it :)


At the moment you won't be able to build this extension yourself without my private key. However, you can modify all code within the src directory and then load this into chrome://extensions/ using "Load Unpacked Extension". If you think you've made some useful feature or security updates then please send through a pull request.
