Busy busy days at work but one must not give up. Grit and hustle time! #HodorHodorHodor

Project: Create an extension app for Chrome which would show a popup window with latest tech news powered by HackerNews and publish it to Google WebStore.

All the code for this project can be found on my github

You can install this chrome extension using this link to get the latest tech news!

Since Google provides all the steps for creating an extension app (here), I am not going to get into specific detail in this blog. Below is the screenshot of the extension and you can try it out by installing it from Google WebStore.
