chromium-web-store

This extension brings the following functionality to ungoogled-chromium (and other forks that lack web store support): - Allows installing extensions directly from chrome web store. - Automatically checks for updates to your installed extensions and displays them on the badge. Example Image

Usage

  • If you wish to install extensions directly instead of just downloading the crx, you must change the flag
    chrome://flags/#extension-mime-request-handling
    to
    Always prompt for install
    .
  • Available extension updates will display on the badge, click to install them (note that non-webstore extensions may need to be installed manually even if you have the flag set.) #### Installation
  • Go to
    chrome://extensions
    and enable developer mode (toggle in top right).
  • Download the .crx from Releases and drag-and-drop it onto the
    chrome://extensions
    page. #### If drag-and-dropping does not work, try this workaround:
  • Download the .crx from releases and extract the contents to a folder.
  • Visit
    chrome://extensions/
    and turn on developer mode (toggle in top right).
  • Click
    Load unpacked
    and select the directory you extracted the crx to. #### Setup Video here Streamable Mirror #### Options Notes
  • Right click the badge and choose
    Options
    from the context menu or access them via
    chrome://extensions
    .
  • Automatic updates normally occur on browser startup, extension addition/removal, and once per hour.
  • "Web Store" extensions refer to any that were obtained from the Chrome Web Store, despite displaying
    Source: Not from Chrome Web Store
    when checking extension details. #### If you wish to help with localization, follow these steps:
  • Create a directory in
    _locales
    named any supported locale code.
  • Copy
    _locales/en/messages.json
    to your newly created directory and edit the "message" fields as necessary, you don't need to change anything else.
  • Submit a PR or open an issue with your translation and I will merge it. #### If you are a chrome extension developer... and do not have your extension listed in the Chrome Web Store, you can still enable updates via chromium-web-store by hosting an update manifest file; see updates.xml in this repo for an example. You must also specify a url to access this file in your extension's
    manifest.json
    under the
    update_url
    field; again, see manifest.json in this repo for an example.
