Self-Hosted Extension

  • Is there a way to self-host an extension for Opera? Our extension uses minified and obfuscated code, which is against Opera's requirements. We already have our extension available for Firefox and Chrome — the exact same build — and would like to support Opera.

    We will not unminify it because when minfied the file size is 52.42% smaller. However, we know it'll just get rejected from the Opera store. So the next best option, if possible is self-hosting.

  • Put it on GitHub? for local installations.

    And no, you cannot host extensions from dubious locations.

    However parts of an extension can be executed on a remote server.

  • You can install extensions that are not hosted on Opera's site in Developer mode (rather obviously). And there is an extension to allow downloads from the Chrome web store - maybe best to see if your Chrome extension works in Opera.

    Thanks! I think the best option is the "Download Chrome Extension" extension. Thanks for letting us know about it.
