How to Write a Chrome App for your Website in 5 Minutes
This video tutorial explains how you can write Chrome Apps and Extensions for your website without any knowledge of programming and publish them to the Chrome Web Store.
Today I published a Chrome app and an extension for this website in the Google Chrome store. I have never written apps for Chrome before but it turns out (see video tutorial) that one can write a basic Chrome app and push it to the Chrome store in less than five minutes.
My Chrome app essentially adds an icon in Chrome’s New Tab page that takes you to the associated website upon clicking (much like any bookmark).
The Chrome extension offers a little more functionality. It adds an icon to the Chrome toolbar from where you can search this website or scan through the most recently published stories. The extension didn’t take much time to develop either.
