pouchdb-fauxton-chrome-extension in action



Make sure you're familiar with how pouchdb-fauxton-logic works before reading this.

This extension shows a special version of PouchDB-Fauxton inside a developer tool panel in Chrome. This version doesn't directly run pouchdb-route on the resultive CouchDB request object, but instead uses message passing to pass it to the extension. The extension passes it to the current page in the current tab, which does run pouchdb-route on it, and then the whole thing happens again in reverse. This way, it gets to see the PouchDB databases of the current page, not of the developer tools.


Get a copy of pouchdb-fauxton-logic and make sure it's accessable under ../pouchdb-fauxton-logic. Also make sure npm install has been ran at least once it that directory. Then run:


The result is a complete unpacked extension you can load using Chrome/Chromium.
