The extension is implemented as a WebExtension.It is dockerized and can be built with the following command:

It creates a new folder called build which contains the zipped extension.The extension can then be loaded via the about:debugging page in Firefox and via the chrome://extensions page in Chrome.For more information on how to install the extension follow this tutorial: https://developer.chrome.com/extensions/getstarted

We recommend using Docker also during development. You can start the build watcher (webpack) as well as the storybook(for documenting UI components) by the following command:
