    wercker status GitHub license semantic-release

    Chrome Extension that proofreads <textarea> using textlint.

    🚧 Work In Progress!

    🚀 The extension experimentally supports Firefox (WebExtensions) and Opera. Check out the "Experimental support" section for more details.

    How to build

    $ npm install
    $ npm run build

    To test the built extension, load dist/chrome directory into Chrome.


    Watch build

    Watch file changes and build it continuously.

    $ npm run watch


    Produce a production-packaged zip in packages directory.

    $ npm run pack


    Versioning and release flow is automated by semantic-release.

    • For each push on master branch, CI will execute semantic-release after all tests passed.
    • Automatically determines the version of a release. version field in both package.json and manifest.json will be set at the release time.
    • Automatically creates a git release with a release note that is auto-generated by commit messages.
    • Automatically uploads a zip file to Chrome Web Store.

    Experimental support

    This extension can also work on browsers implementing Chrome-compatible extension API, such as Firefox and Opera.

    Please note that we take Chrome as the main target of this project and thus some features may not work properly on other browsers.

    How to build

    $ gulp build --vendor=moz    // for Firefox
    $ gulp build --vendor=opera  // for Opera


    For Firefox, please make sure you have Firefox 45 or higher, and follow the instructions at https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/Add-ons/WebExtensions/Packaging_and_installation to load dist/moz directory.

    For Opera, please follow the instructions at https://dev.opera.com/extensions/testing/ to load dist/opera directory.


    Due to the incompatibilities with Chrome's original extension API, there are some limitations on features. These limitations may go away if API supports on browsers are improved.


    • User selections in the popup panel will not be remembered. (Due to Bug 1258139)
    • Custom rule settings will not work. (Due to Bug 1258139)
    • Icons in result tooltips will not be shown properly. (Due to Bug 1207394)
    • All configurations will not be synced. (Due to Bug 1220494)
    • textlint processes will not be run in a sandbox. (i.e. there is no protection around rule executions.)
