Bug Description

We need to publish Hatch to the Chrome web store to ease installation of the browser extension component for Hatch.

Some items that will likely need addressing sooner than later are creating a community-managed developer account and creating icons of various shapes and sizes.

I've created a new Windows installer .exe to accommodate the changes required to publish the extension (setting the extension ID).

Continuing from previous comment...

Windows users will need to run the updated .exe to use the Chrome store version of the extension. It may ask you to uninstall the previous version first, but it will guide you.


Linux/Mac users will need to manually modify the org.evergreen_ils.hatch.json to use the new extension ID, specifically the allowed_origins value:

"allowed_origins": [

In Linux+Chrome, for example, the file lives at:

Hatch work in progress is here. Will merge to master and tag after a few more users have tested.;a=shortlog;h=refs/heads/user/berick/lp1708757-chrome-store-prep

Working branch also contains updated install documentation and documentation on how to update the Chrome store app.


We also need to wrangle the web team to carve out a spot for the Hatch executable and to live on the downloads section and ideally a spot for a help docs page which can be linked to the extension in the store.

Testing appreciated.
