Description Ondrej Brejla 2015-01-13 09:08:33 UTC
Hi, it would be great to have an action on a folder in JS (Library?) project type which will "pack" that folder as a Chrome Extension. So one doesn't have to go to Chrome -> Extenstions -> Pack Extension -> Select -> Select...

Imho extensions can be packed by CLI by something like:

chrome.exe --pack-extension=c:\myext --pack-extension-key=c:\myext.pem


/Applications/Google\\ Chrome --pack-extension=./myext --pack-extension-key=./myext.pem

Thanks :)

You could also use Grunt to run shell commands :)

I really don't want to learn, install and setup grunt, gulp, ant or whatever...I just wanna pack a dir with some UI for selecting private key...;)
