Google Chrome extension for an humoristic wiki
in the lan house, because I didn’t have computer at this time… searching about everything that I wanted to add in it, I didn’t understand anything about programming logic, I just saw the source code of a finished Chrome extension and I tryed to learn it in some way, in some moment I learned how that code works.
Since I had no PC, no international credit card and not even any credit card to open an Chrome Web Store account, I had to use alternative methods to make people know about my extension. I needed a service whose kept the .crx extension in the end of the URL, so Chrome would understand as extension content. That’s when I found out the (today discontinued) Google Code, I also had made XML files to have automatic updates outside the Web Store.
Nowadays I think that methods don’t work anymore because the Google Chrome reforces a lot the security, preventing installation of extensions outside the Web Store, but when I was 17 years old I knew about the pre-paid credit cards, from there I finally opened my Chrome Web Store developer account (and the Google Play developer account, because I was starting to build Android apps at this time) and you can find it there.
Between that time I also wanted to build extensions for other browsers, so I build the DescicloApp for Opera (including at time that it wasn’t a disguised Google Chrome) and Firefox (they didn’t want to accept new version so I stopped the development of new Firefox versions).
DescicloApp was developed during more or less 3 years (I stopped to access the website, is a portuguese version of Uncyclopedia), you can see all the it’s features and images clicking here, for someone who started web development from 0 and don’t have any course at these time, it looks great.
