Converting My Loggly Search Bookmarklets Into An Unpacked Chrome Extension

Converting My Loggly Search Bookmarklets Into An Unpacked Chrome Extension

An "unpacked" Chrome extension is just an extension that is loaded off of the local file system, as opposed to an "official" extension which is installed via the Chrome app store. Since these are just for my personal consumption, I don't see any real need to dig into extensions any deeper than I need to (at this time).

Four years ago, I created a Loggly Bookmarklet that would augment the Loggly Search page formatting to look and feel more like Kibana (which, in my opinion, has more accessible contrast and whitespace usage). Then, two years ago, I added a link between the Loggly JSON modal and my JSON explorer. Unfortunately, a few weeks ago, Loggly implemented a new Content Security Policy (CSP) that is blocking my bookmarklets. As such, I finally sat down and converted my bookmarklets into an unpacked Chrome extension.
