For the last couple of days I’ve been walking through a simple Chrome extension, HexTab, the source code of which is open and published on GitHub. The functionality is nothing like mine, but it has the virtues of …

  • being simple and open-source
  • relying on just a few JavaScript/HTML/CSS files and therefore being easily adaptable
  • being well-organized (in contrast to a few others I’ve looked at)
  • obeying the Chrome naming/organization guidelines to the best I understand them (it occurs to me that those guidelines may be worth mentioning in the HCI context as well as Apple’s)
  • being complete enough to build from

I would like to start hollowing out this code soon, but I’m spending a while reading the code first.
