Chromium Extension

The project is available as a Chromium Extension.

You can try it on Chrome Web Store, or grab a packaged extension file for offline installation on the Releases page.

Please report issues on the issue tracker.

Development status

PAC generator

This project contains a PAC generating module called omega-pac, which handles the profiles model and compile profiles into PAC scripts. This module is standalone and can be published to npm when the documentation is ready.

Options manager

The folder omega-target contains browser-independent logic for managing the options and applying profiles. Every public method is well documented in the comments. Functions related to browser are not included, and shall be implemented in subclasses of the omega-target classes.

omega-web is a web-based configuration interface for various options and profiles. The interface works great with omega-target as the back-end.

omega-web alone is incomplete and requires a file named omega_target_web.js containing an angular module omegaTarget. The module contains browser-dependent code to communicate with omega-target back-end, and other code retrieving browser-related state and information. See the omega-target-chromium-extension/ file for an example of such module.


The omega-target-* folders should contain environment-dependent code such as browser API calls.

Each target folder should contain an extended OmegaTarget object, which contains subclasses of the abstract base classes like Options. The classes contains implementation of the abstract methods, and can override other methods at will.

A target can copy the files in omega-web into its build to provide a web-based configuration interface. If so, the target must provide the omega_target_web.js file as described in the Options manager section.

Additionally, each target can contain other files and resources required for the target, such as background pages and extension manifests.

For now, only one target has been implemented: The Chromium Extension target. This target allows the project to be used as a Chromium extension in most Chromium-based browsers.

However, the project architecture allows more targets to be added in the future. The first step would be adapting more browsers including Firefox. I don't have time for that now. Feel free to open a pull request if you want to help.


All translations are in the omega-i18n folder. For now, only en (English) and zh (简体中文) translations are done. If you notice a translation issue such as typo or bad spelling, please open an issue or a pull request.

You can also help to translate SwitchyOmega into your language. Just fork the project and copy the en folder to a new folder named the locale code of your choice. Then edit the message.json to provide translations. The file is in Chrome Extension Locale-Specific Messages Format. Don't forget to open a pull request when you are done translating.

Building the project

SwitchyOmega has migrated to use npm and grunt for building. Please note that npm 2.x is required for this project.

To build the project:

# Install node and npm first, then:
sudo npm install -g grunt-cli bower
# In the project folder:
cd omega-build
npm run deps # This runs npm install in every module.
npm run dev # This runs npm link to aid local development.
# Note: the previous command may require sudo in some environments.
# The modules are now working. We can build now:
# After building, a folder will be generated:
cd .. # Return to project root.
ls omega-chromium-extension/build/
# The folder above can be loaded as an unpacked extension in Chromium now.

To enable grunt watch, run grunt watch once in the omega-build directory. This will effectively run grunt watch in every module in this project.
