Download Chrome Extension for offline Installation

 Hi folks,

I tried to use my extension for offline usage for a VM based PC browser which doesn't have internet to download the extension.

So, I have come up with this approach where you can download the chrome extension (.crx) file.

Find the extension ID

Sample browser extension URL in chrome web store is below

https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/previous-next-page/fmichikmgflpgibapdhepmodjdjemmda

Last word is the extension ID (fmichikmgflpgibapdhepmodjdjemmda)

Download the extension file

Browser: Use Mozilla Firefox or other browser but not chrome

Syntax

https://clients2.google.com/service/update2/crx?response=redirect&prodversion=<<browser_version>>&acceptformat=crx2,crx3&x=id%3D<<extensionID>>%26uc

Example

https://clients2.google.com/service/update2/crx?response=redirect&prodversion=85.0.4183.121&acceptformat=crx2,crx3&x=id%3Dfmichikmgflpgibapdhepmodjdjemmda%26uc

Install the extension

  1. Copy the .crx file to your offline computer
  2. Open Chrome browser
  3. Navigate to chrome://extensions
  4. Enable developer mode
  5. Drag and drop the .crx file

Hope you will be able to use the offline extensions in chrome.

Convert JSON file to CSV with Python

 Hi folks,

Today I will explain the code to implement the Json2CSV conversion.

Make sure you have valid JSON file with an array of objects.

Sample:

"Users":[

{"id": 1, "Name": "Suresh Raju", "Age": 35},

{"id":2, "Name": "PSR", "Age": 34}

]

I have chosen Python language to convert because of inbuilt library support for json and csv and command line execution with Notepad++ as editor.

Base 64 Encode with Powershell Script

 Hi all,

Today I will explain the snippet which gives you a base 64 encoded string

$enc = [system.Text.Encoding]::UTF8

$guid = "42f930c2-2ba2-4d5a-a102-898321122414"

$base64encodedstring = [System.Convert]::ToBase64String($enc.GetBytes($guid))

Write-Host "bBse64 Encoded String: $base64encodedstring"

Hope this helps when you are planning to generate and use/store the base64 encoded value
