To make sure that this project doesn't die, I have made the database publicly downloadable at (License). If you are planning on using the database in another project, please read the API Docs page for more information.

Rename config.json.example to config.json and adjust configuration as desired.

There are also other build scripts available. Install npm, then run npm install in the repository to install dependencies.

Run npm run build to generate a Chrome extension.

Use npm run build:firefox to generate a Firefox extension.

The result is in dist. This can be loaded as an unpacked extension

Developing with a clean profile

Run npm run dev to run the extension using a clean browser profile with hot reloading. Use npm run dev:firefox for Firefox. This uses web-ext run.
Known chromium bug: Extension is not loaded properly on first start. Visit chrome://extensions/ and reload the extension.

If you contribute and add a dependency, update the attribution file using the following steps:

Make sure the attribution generator is installed: npm i -g oss-attribution-generator
