Any way to download from Chrome Web Store?

Postby mynamehere » Sat Dec 10, 2011 4:55 pm

Is there any workaround to get SRWare Iron to download extensions from Google's Chrome Web Store? If so, could you please make a sticky?

Thanks

1.
http://clients2.google.com/service/upda ... ct&x=id%3D<ID name of extension>%26lang%3Den-US%26uc
2.
go to chrome web store and copy the link for the extension you want:
for example smooth gestures:
https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/lfkgmnnajiljnolcgolmmgnecgldgeld
3. take the last part (the extension signature):
lfkgmnnajiljnolcgolmmgnecgldgeld
and replace with it the <ID name of extension> from the first link:

http://clients2.google.com/service/upda ... en-US%26uc

4. now take the link in another browser (IE, firefox) and you will can download the installation file (crx file)

Thanks, I'll have to these a shot.
Probably the biggest frustration I've run into so far with Iron is not knowing how to download extensions from the store if there's no direct download from the author.

Thanks again

This worked great, I plugged the modded link in right back into Iron, and it installed the extension as if I were using official Chrome, no need to use another browser.

Now if someone can just make an App to automatically grab the ID from the store page link, create a modded link and plug it into the address bar for relatively seamless installs, the store would be a snap for anyone to use. :D

Thanks again

Just dealt with this "BUG" in chrome and actually the solution is quite simple!!!

Go to the "default" download directory in Iron which in my case is (full path) "C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\My Documents" and create a "new" folder called "Downloads". Once this is done, you can change the download path in the Iron options section to whatever you prefer!

Enjoy ;)
