  • Backpack is in active development, so all APIs are subject to change.
  • This code is unaudited. Use at your own risk.
  • I repeat. This is not ready for production.

Installing the Latest Release

If you'd like to install the latest dev release, grab the latest here and add it to your local chrome profile, using developer mode. See the video below.

Developing Locally

0. Pull the code

git clone
git submodule init
git submodule update

1. Temporary preliminary steps

Enable self-signed local SSL certs

Go to chrome://flags/#allow-insecure-localhost and enable the toggle, then restart chrome. Note: Please don't enable this if you don't know what you're doing. It will leave you vulnerable to exploits if left on. It is recommended to undo this step when you are done developing.

Environment variables

You can also optionally rename .env.example to .env and set your own variables.

2. Install dependencies

yarn install

3. Build all packages for production

yarn build

4. Start packages for development

yarn start

Note: In a fresh repo, you should run yarn build before yarn start.

If you run into issues with builds try running yarn clean and then start again.

5a. Install the development version of the extension

Go to chrome://extensions, enable developer mode (top right) and drag the packages/app-extension/dev dir into the window. This version will have (Dev) in the title and supports live-reloading.

5b. Optionally install the built extension

If you want to try the production build of the extension, run yarn build and drag the packages/app-extension/build dir into chrome://extensions as above. This version won't have hot-reloading and local plugins won't be visible unless you also run yarn start
