#364 closed change (fixed)

Publish the devbuild on the Chrome Web Store

Starting with Chrome 35 (currently in beta) Chrome extensions that weren't installed from the Chrome Web Store are disabled on every startup. This makes using our devbuilds highly inconvenient and has a high potential to alienate almost all of our devbuild users.

What to change

  1. Add the devbuild to the Chrome Web Store, preserving our existing private key as explained here. But be careful not to publish the item publicly before you made sure that key.pem isn't leaked with the generated CRX.
  2. Create a Client ID and obtain a refresh_token as explained here.
  3. Configure the devbuilds to automatically update the item in the Chrome Web Store. Therefore set abpchrome_clientID, abpchrome_clientSecret and abpchrome_refreshToken in sitescripts.ini to the details obtained in the previous step.

Got all the necessary configuration parameters but didn't enable them yet - our devbuild was flagged for review so I cannot test the update scenario yet. And before I test I'm not really comfortable pushing the build tools changes in which are required to upload to CWS automatically.

Reopening because #356 is reopened, had to disable uploading again because of that.
