This npm package provides a CLI utility to create a new simple (and mostly blank) WebExtension with only one command.
You can use it by installing the npm npx utility (
npx create-webextension my-webextension-project)
or by using
yarn create as an "always updated" shortcut:
yarn create webextension my-webextension-project
create-webextension currently supports only a single basic WebExtension template
(which is mostly blank), but we can definitely evaluate to support some additional templates
(e.g. a template which already provides a setup which includes the webextension-polyfill,
babel, unit tests, linting, webpack/browserify configurations etc.).
Pull Requests are welcome ;-)
