Installation

Prerequisites

Before using extension CLI, you must have the following:

  • Node.js
  • JavaScript IDE
  • Terminal access
  • Browser for debugging extensions

Setup

Create a new extension project:

npx extension-cli

Add CLI to an existing project:

npm install extension-cli

Default Project Organization

Before you start using the CLI, inspect your project file structure. You can override most of these paths in configurations, but this organization matches the CLI defaults.

If you created a new extension using the command above, your file structure already looks like this.

Path Description
assets static assets
    └─ img Extension icons
    └─ locales Localized string resources
        └─ en/messages.json English dictionary
src Source code: put js, scss, html, json files here
    └─ manifest.json Extension manifest
