This section provides how-to instructions for various features of Tusk.
This section provides in-depth information about how tusk works under the hood. We aim to provide better transparency and give users peace-of-mind. Tusk may not be perfect, but it's better than proprietary black-box applications that hide design flaws from the community.
# install dependencies yarn install # build static DLL resources (optional) yarn build-dll # build for production with minification yarn build # run the packer script targeted for 'chrome' and 'firefox' after build. # this step generates the zip archives submitted to Chrome/Firefox addon marketplaces. yarn bundle # static reload with file watch for tests yarn dev-tests
For detailed explanation on how things work, consult the docs for vue-loader.
To run tests, first build them with
yarn build-tests or
yarn watch-tests then open
tests/test.html in a browser.
Tusk requires cross-origin permissions in order to inject credentials and query the storage backends on the user's behalf.
In chrome, these permissions requests are always prompted to the user upon first use.
Because of Firefox's implementation of
browser.permissions, it was necessary to request all permissions at install time to avoid code rot. A deeper explanation of the firefox permissions can be found on stackoverflow
Why is it called Tusk?!
I originally wanted to call it Elephant, as in An elephant never forgets. I tried this name on a couple of friends and they were unimpressed. I wanted to find a name that was more concise but keep the elephant imagery. Ergo, tusk.
What happened to CKPX?
This is it! CKPX has been rebranded as Tusk to mark its Firefox release. The C in CKPX stood for 'Chrome'.
Can I donate money?
I don't want your money. Take whatever you would have given me and find a local charity -- a food bank, a women's shelter or an animal shelter, for example. Enjoy your free software.
So how can I support Tusk?
