crx3-utils

Starting with Chrome 73, Chrome changed the package format for extensions to the CRX3 file format.

$ npm -g i crx3-utils

Usage:

$ crx3-new private.pem < file.zip

The util is intentionally bare bone: it doesn't generate a private key for you (use openssl for that) & it doesn't compress your directory (use zip for that).

Print info for a .crx downloaded from the Chome Web Store:

$ crx3-info < file.crx
id                   ckbpebiaofifhmkecjijobfafcfngfkj
header               1322
payload              8233
sha256_with_rsa      2 main_idx=1
sha256_with_ecdsa    1

(main_idx is the index of AsymmetricKeyProof that contains a public key from which the id was derived during the .crx creation.)

Extract zip:

$ crx3-info < file.crx | awk '/^header/ {print $2}' \
    | xargs -I% dd if=file.crx iflag=skip_bytes skip=% > file.zip

Extract the 1st rsa public key:

$ crx3-info rsa 0 < file.crx
