    Building a chrome extension **Bounty**

    Hi guys! I am new here and to the web design world so I would like to start by saying thank you in advance for any help you give me. Each piece of help I receive will be rewarded with a bounty. The size of these bounties will be determined by myself and will be paid in Ethereum (ETH) to the address you provide.

    I would like to start building a chrome extension for a website which uses javascript. The website is a poker website called

    The site has a list of tables and I want my chrome extension to add a radio button at the top of the list so that I can filter the full/empty tables out of the list and only show tables with between 1 players and full table minus 1 players.

    I figure this would be a great way to start learning JS and HTML. Is this too over-my-head to get started? I bought the book "Thinking in Java - 4th edition" and started reading it but I feel like I need to get my hands dirty to really understand OOP better.

    Anyways - Where would be the best place to start this project? I understand that building a chrome extension will require a manifest.json file so that Chrome can understand what my extension is doing, give it versions, permissions, etc. So I have a text file named manifest.json with the following code:


    "name: "Global Poker Add-On Goodies"
    "description": "Filter tables"
    "version": "0.0.1"

    "manifest_version": 2,


    Is this correct? and I need to add permissions but I am not sure which ones because I really don't know what this project is going to entail.

    Ok so this is the current manifest.json I have unpacked into the extension tab...

    "name": "Global Poker Add-On Goodies",
    "description": "Filter tables",
    "version": "0.0.1",
    "manifest_version": 2,
    "browser_action": {
    "default_icon": "icon.png",
    "default_title": "Global Poker Goodies",
    "default_popup": "popup.html"

    This gives the extension icon up in the extensions bar and the name when I roll over it. When I click the icon I get the text from my html file. Here is my html file:

    <div style="white-space: nowrap">
    Global Poker Goodies

    Now my next step would to be to use this extension to add a radio button to the global poker website. How would I go about this? The page I would like to add the radio button to is ... I assume I need to add a javascript file that adds this button?

    Honestly, dude, you're probably not going to get a lot of help here. This is a web design forum, and I don't think anyone here has ever built a Chrome extension. I'm the closest thing there is on here to someone who would have, and I haven't.

    The one thing I'm going to suggest is the only thing I can suggest, and I suspect you've already been here: . Sorry I can't be any more help than that.
    If I've helped you out in any way, please pay it forward. My wife and I are walking for Autism Speaks. Please donate, and thanks.

    If someone helped you out, be sure to "Like" their post and/or help them in kind. The "Like" link is on the bottom right of each post, beside the "Share" link.
