Install an unpacked extension

Alexey edited this page May 7, 2019 · 5 revisions

Note: Extensions installed as unpacked aren't updated automatically. To update the extension you should download it and install as unpacked again.

Here is a short guide how to install an unpacked extension on Google Chrome or Chromium-based browsers (e.g. Opera, Vivaldi).

  1. Grab a copy of the source code either by cloning the repository or by downloading and extracting the zipped source. You can download zip archive by opening the project page on GitHub and clicking on the "Download" button.


  1. Next, open the "Extensions" page (chrome://extensions/) in the browser and turn on the "Developer mode".


  1. Click on the "Load unpacked" button and select the web-scrobber/src directory located at the place you have saved the source.
You can’t perform that action at this time.
