Develop a browser extension with Outsystems

Hi guys,

Anyone knows if it is possible to develop a browser extention with Outsystems? I did not find anything about it in the forum.

Thank you for your help.


Hi Filipe,

Not sure what you mean. OutSystems is for developing Web and Mobile Applications. They run on a server and in the browser. Browser extension are a whole different beast, they run on your local device, as native code. So no, it's not possible to develop that with OutSystems.

Solution

Browser extensions nowadays are mostly based in Chrome, so you should check their manual.

There is no automatic way of creating browser extensions in OS. And considering the type of files, I'd say there is no advantage in getting pages/scripts from OS and manually adapt to the structure.
