Short and Share Chrome Extension

This is my first chrome extension. I decided to make one out of a need to tweet links I ran across while browsing.

I used Google’s free URL shortener. It was pretty straight forward to implement and allows tracking of the shortened URL out of the box. If you tweet out links often, please give my extension a try.

Lessons Learned:

  • Screen shot size for Chrome store HAS to be exact pixels
  • How to consume one of Googles APIs
  • Material Design Icons are cool, but not close to FontAwesome yet
