Microsoft has quietly slipped into the Windows Store a new tool for developers: the Microsoft Edge Extension Toolkit. It provides a quick way for developers to convert their Chrome extensions so they will work with the Edge browser.
This toolkit allows developers to convert a Chrome extension to run on Microsoft Edge in the Windows 10 Anniversary Update (14393.10) edition. The tool creates the necessary JSON manifest entries and bridges the chrome. APIs to the browser.
APIs supported on Microsoft Edge, polyfiling where necessary.
The toolkit allows developers to see all of the files and folders in its Chrome extension. They can see the changes that need to be made so it can work on Edge as well. The arrival of the tool — thus far unannounced — opens the gates to what could become a flood of Chrome extensions arriving for Edge.
