Your First Google Chrome Extension

Your First Google Chrome Extension


In this guide, I will take you through creating a very simple Google Chrome extenstion to get you started on your way as a chrome extenstion guru.

Google Chrome comes top in my list of favorite browsers and part of this is attributed its excellent extensions. Whats interesting is its actually not hard to get up and running with your own Chrome extension. You can create new extensions for Chrome with those core technologies that you're already familiar with from web development i.e HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. If you've ever built a web page, you should feel right at home with extensions pretty quickly. In this tutorial we will piece up a simple extension that puts a small icon next to Chrome’s address bar, and, when clicked, will look up a movie's information from TMDB API.
