Chrome extension scaffold

Generate a scaffold for a Chrome extension.

By default it generates HAML and CoffeeScript files. It generates a watcher script to scan these files and generate HTML and JS.


Or install with:

$ gem install chrome_extension_scaffold


$ chrome_extension_scaffold my_extension_name
$ cd my_extension_name
$ ./watcher
  • Open Chrome or Chromium
  • Go to the Extensions panel
  • Activate the developper mode
  • Click "Add an unpacked extension" and select the created directory
  • Your extension is loaded. Edit the files and hit "Reload".


  1. Fork it
  2. Create your feature branch (git checkout -b my-new-feature)
  3. Commit your changes (git commit -am 'Added some feature')
  4. Push to the branch (git push origin my-new-feature)
  5. Create new Pull Request
