Chrome Extension Boilerplate

Not too long ago I wrote a simple Chrome Extension for my brother-in-law to help him quickly fill out some online forms for work. While I learned the basics of Chrome Extensions, I was hoping to find some kind of super-simple example that I could use as a starting point, but wound up just doing everything from scratch.

After I finished the project, I decided to create my own boilerplate.

It is very simple - it only contains elements for a content script, and includes jQuery. Clone the repo, change the name of the extension in the "manifest.json" file and get to coding in the "main.js" file. Have fun!

Updates to Google Voice scripts

You can find the latest version of the Google Voice scripts on my github page here:
