So I got bored and decided I'd slap together a plugin for chrome, only to find out its not as easy as that.

Basically all I want to do is alter the CSS of a page, so I can change color values and whatnot. Anyone know how to do this? I've searched google for a while with no decent results

Hope that helps with the basics.

Well, I've gotten that far (I read google's tutorials ;)). But I don't want to create a popup window, I just want to modify the css... how do I do that?

It works with page actions. I'm not sure about the rest though.

Here is a CSS tester thing: http://superjer.com/sprinkles/0.2_0/

Here is NotScripts: http://superjer.com/sprinkles/0.9.6_0/

Those should help you with page actions.

Can you not write something a bit like a Greasemonkey script? Wikipedia tells me that quite a few of them run natively. You should have a look, the Greasemonkey has many tutorials.

Its all done with javascript. It should be fairly easy to get the CSS. Jus' grab the head section, and search for the link, or inline stuff. Do that first, I'd say, then jus' display the result.

I'm in no way sure how you would change this actively. The best guess I would say is: You reload the page, then change the CSS (The extension will run before the page is actually loaded).

I think.

I'm in no way sure how you would change this actively, unless you used the built-in support for scripts that Chrome has. The best guess I would say is: You reload the page, then change the CSS (The extension will run before the page is actually loaded).

I think.

Does no-one ever read the things I say?

For an example here, I have a small script running in FireFox which, on www.rockpapershotgun.com, takes the alt-text from images and displays it beneath them. Because alt-text isn't displayed as a tool-tip but Wordpress only provides opportunity to insert alt-text it makes life easier, because there are often funnies in the alt-text.

Whew! Basically, use Greasemonkey (scripts).

This is dumb... even when I follow tutorials I get some sort of error >.>
Anyone wanna give me the 'base code' I need, where I can just add the css into it that I want?
