Build Chrome Extensions using React/Webpack

Chrome extensions are like apps for your desktop. They are extremely useful, yet very easy to build. In this session we'll create a Chrome extension together, using JavaScript ES6, React, and Webpack.

About This Session

Chrome extensions are like apps for your desktop - they can alert you to changes and incoming events from around the web, improve your browsing experience, or add new functionality to old web sites. Extensions are surprisingly easy to build. With just a little bit of JavaScript, and some knowledge of the DOM, you too can build a useful Chrome extension, and even publish it in the web store. Adding React and Webpack to the mix allow us to create reusable components, and repeatable building environment, making it ever easier to add new functionality to our browser. In this session we'll cover the basics of a Chrome extension, and create one together, using ES6 flavored JavaScript for the logic, React for the view, and Webpack 2 for the build/package environment. Some basic familiarity with ES6, React, and Webpack 2 is recommended, but not mandatory.
