crxmake packages chrome extensions as .crx from python

Project Description

Python script for building google chrome extension crx package.
It is inspired by rubygems' crxmake.

Ubuntu Installation

sudo apt-get install swig
sudo pip install crxmake


.. code-block:: usage


# From python
>>> from crxmake import package
>>> package('examples/app', outfile='examples/release1')


An example extension named 'app' is provided in the examples/
directory for testing purposes:

.. code-block:: example

$ examples/app
$ ls examples/app
$ app app.crx app.pem


- python 2
- swig
- M2Crypto (available via pip, requires swig)
- "openssl" command: because current M2Crypto lacks func for rsa pubout DER

Legacy Dependencies

Appendix: m2crypto-0.20.2-enable-rsa-pubout.patch

"svn diff" output for appending the feature for rsa pubout DER.

Howto build m2crypto with it:

svn co m2crypto-0.20.2
cd m2crypto-0.20.2
patch -p0 < ../legacy/m2crypto-0.20.2-enable-rsa-pubout.patch
python build

(I hope someone send it to M2Crypto maintainer ^^)
