Building the Extension

This extension uses the WebExtension Toolbox for development and build processes.

To build the extension from source code, you will need to use Node Package Manager (npm), which handles all of the dependencies needed for this project and is used to execute the various scripts for development/building/packaging/etc.

npm install

Then you can run the development process (where the extension is auto-reloaded when changes are made) for your browser of choice:

npm run dev <chrome/edge/firefox>

Or you can generate a production build for your browser of choice:

npm run build <chrome/edge/firefox>

Development Process

To make development easier, you can start up a temporary development profile on Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome with the extension already loaded. The browser will also automatically detect changes and reload the extension for you (read more about this on the web-ext documentation pages). Use the following commands in parallel to re-build the extension and re-load it in Firefox/Chrome automatically as you make changes:


npm run dev firefox
npm run start:firefox


npm run dev chrome
npm run start:chrome

Note that you will need 2 terminal instances, one for each of the above commands, as they both remain running until you cancel them (use CTRL + c to cancel each process in your terminal(s)).
