Extensions Reloader

Description from extension meta

Reload all unpacked extensions using the extension's toolbar button or by browsing to "http://reload.extensions"

Image from store Extensions Reloader
Description from store If you've ever developed a Google Chrome™ extension, you might have wanted to automate the process of reloading your unpacked extension without the need of going through the extensions page. "Extensions Reloader" allows you to reload all unpacked extensions using 2 ways: 1- The extension's toolbar button. 2- Browsing to "http://reload.extensions". The toolbar icon will reload unpacked extensions using a single click. The "reload by browsing" is intended for automating the reload process using "post build" scripts - just browse to "http://reload.extensions", and chrome will open with freshly reloaded extensions. Whenever a refresh is executed, a green "OK" badge will appear on Extensions Reloader's toolbar icon. ** This extension is open-source and avilable at GitHub: https://github.com/arikw/chrome-extensions-reloader

  • (2020-02-25) The late coming Prince: I have been using it for years! Love it.
  • (2020-02-04) Lars Ejaas: This is a MUST HAVE when developing your own extension. Ownly problem: Why didn't I find this extension way earlier???: I lost SO MUCH time reloading my extension manually!! 🤬😁
  • (2019-08-17) Lincoln W Daniel: This is awesome. I got it working with a `gulp watch` script and its " Reload current tab after extensions have been reloaded." to refresh my extension and refresh the page when I click the button in the toolbar.
  • (2019-08-06) e҉v҉o҉L҉: they are not the same between re-launch and re-load, the extension name is re-load extension, it is wrong.
  • (2019-07-21) Fanglin Chen: 100th like!
  • (2019-06-12) Good Things: Very useful extension. Does what it says. The only slight problem is, as it was mentioned already, that the manifest file doesn't get refreshed.
  • (2019-04-21) Kaluwa 2.0: Fine, but i have to reload this one, lol xd
  • (2018-11-27) n ascentt: Exactly what I wanted, especially the url functionality (http://reload.extensions) however neither the url nor the button actually do anything, extensions have the blue restore button but this addon does nothing to toggle them, so I still need to manually restore them.
  • (2018-10-10) Ernesto Alfonso: Great extension for easily reloading an extension. The key binding (Alt+R) is also very useful and is worth mentioning in the main page.
  • (2018-09-12) Avi Vaserman: Click this button twice in a row, but nothing seemed to change in the extension I'm developing.
  • (2018-08-16) Aleksandr Golovatyi: Cool extension, I like it
  • (2018-08-14) Shiv Rathe: Does this extension reloads unpacked CSS, because for me it doesn't.
  • (2018-08-05) Kosty Maleyev: Useful tool. Missing a keyboard shortcut.
  • (2017-11-30) Michael Flanakin: Needs to be able to auto-reload when manifest.json (or any file referenced in it) changes. Barring that, a keyboard shortcut to reload. I also want the ability to re-run extensions without refreshing the page.
  • (2017-10-14) Stanislav: Doesn't work now. For example when i change browser_action->default_title and click on extension - it does nothing but flashes screen...
  • (2017-10-07) Arpit: Must have for me. Well done!
  • (2017-07-21) Fellyp Santos: Aqui funcionou perfeitamente, melhor que ficar dando refresh na tela de extenções do chrome. Valeu!!
  • (2017-05-08) Johan A: Perfect. Only problem is it is opening my Simple Docker UI So I disabled the other plugin. Now it works
  • (2017-03-20) Saves so much time. Don't think I can remember having a problem with it. Good to know there is an API to refresh it from outside the browser automatically with scripts too, will definitely be using that in the future.
  • (2017-03-16) Salvador Morales León: I vote with a 3 because I can not "not vote". I thought that this one was intended to reload all the extensions at once, no such thing.
  • (2016-12-31) Joshua Chandra: For me it doesn't actually reload extensions that were disabled from, say, an unexpected shutdown, but it does bring up the app that's currently set up in ARC Welder. So even though it has a totally different effect than what I thought it'd do, I could still totally put this to use. Neat tool!
  • (2016-11-03) Shyam Makwana: No doubt, it's really helpful extension. However I have one suggestion also, to make it more Developer friendly. :)) Check suggestion in support section. Thanks,
  • (2016-10-13) Dara Javaherian: Really good, though unfortunately it doesn't seem to refresh the manifest.json file, which can lead to confusion if you rely on it! Another thing that would be great would be the option of refreshing the current page along with the extension.
  • (2016-09-10) Nathaniel Bass: useful
  • (2016-08-08) Sean Hasselback: Thank you. You have saved both my forehead and the brick wall I work next to.

  • (2020-01-19, v:1.14) Dimitry NeverMind: Stopped to work
    Thank you for creating this awesome extension, it saved lot of time for me. Unfortunately it stopped to work for me about a month ago, maybe that was caused by some Chrome Browser extension. For my workflow I created simple html page with this link <a href="http://reload.extensions"> RELOAD </a> It worked just fine about half year, now I am getting this message: "Requests to the server have been blocked by an extension." I tried disable all my extensions except your, and it's still not working..
  • (2019-11-23, v:1.14) Silky Johnson: the flash permission is not working
    it saids that flash is blocked and I allow on all sites
  • (2018-10-20, v:1.14) Mauro Yo: timer or automatic timer
    Dear Sir It is possible that a timer option is set to run automatically at a certain time, for example every 5 minutes, such as the Auto_Refresh_Plus or Super_Auto Refresh_Plus extension. Thank you Adrian

  • (2017-04-13, v:1.14) Maxi Lang: Closes the background page
    Everytime I refresh my chrome extension with the app, the developer tools for the background page gets closed. But i need the background page for debugging and console output. I am using chrome on OSX Could you please fix that?
  • (2017-03-31, v:1.14) Ondřej Palovský: Illegible icon
    The toolbar icon is not legible when using black Chrome skin. See the following screenshot snip: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/nmcr567oz8f2mg2/AADHZb9Jwjc34Injh-Yiqiy4a?dl=0 Maybe add a one pixel white line around the icon, or something to make it stand out from the surrounding black and stop being just a multicolored micro-dot.
  • (2017-01-05, v:1.14) reload.extensions not auto closing anymore
    Hi! In previous versions of chrome, reload.extensions would auto close. In Chrome version 55.0.2883.95 (64-bit) that seems to have broken. Can you confirm this behavior? Do you think it is something on your side or on our side? We are using gulp to trigger the reload. Thanks, Ryan

    i want to see my deleted history data in google
  • (2016-11-03, v:1.14) Shyam Makwana: Additional Shortcut
    No doubt this extension saves me a lot time, and it's pretty awesome extension for devs. I have one suggestion that it would be so helpful and time saver if I have a shortcut keys in option to click extension icon. Like F7, F8 or F6 etc. which will save little bit time, and time is big factor, you know well.
  • (2016-10-02, v:1.14) Pamala Phillips: my extension reloader or none of my extensions fail to upload or update on my windows 7
    In my extensions tab, there is a "keyboard shortcut" link when I click on it says all my extensions are not activated and prompts me to "type in a shortcut", which I don't know what to type in and it will not allow me to type anything in, any suggestions?
  • (2016-09-30, v:1.14) Seven Systems: Doesn't work in iframe, loading spinner keeps spinning
    I've tried to use this extension for my web-based IDE. However, if I do "location.href = 'http://reload.extensions'" directly, the "Loading..." spinner in the window title bar keeps spinning after that. Not very good. If I try to use a hidden iframe instead to do the navigation, nothing happens. Could you fix this?
