Extension Documentation System

If you're interested in contributing to the developer docs for extensions (or you're just curious how it works), you've found the right place.

How you can contribute to the doc

You can help improve the extension docs for Google Chrome in a couple of ways:
  • File a bug about each doc mistake/omission/improvement
    • If possible, tell us the exact text you'd like to see
  • Fix the doc yourself
    • See Contributing Code for general rules
    • Note that pages could take months to show up in the default doc. To get around this, someone needs to merge your changes into the various branches.

Overview of the doc system

Although the doc appears to be on code.google.com, it isn't. It's really in the Chromium project and served up by an AppEngine app. To modify the doc, you need to build it.

For details on where doc content comes from (from the server's point of view), see How Extension Docs Are Served.
