    Default Creating a Theme in CRX format

    Credit goes to VoyD for providing the information

    Creating a Theme in CRX format http://dev.chromium.org/developers/d...cuments/themes
    List of images for CRX (only begins with IDR_THEME):
    http://src.chromium.org/viewvc/chrom..._resources.grd

    To begin:
    1. Create a folder, for example C:\MyTheme
    2. Create a sub folder and add your images to it C:\MyTheme\Image
    3. Create a file C:\MyTheme\manifest.json See example
    4. Close all instances of Chrome.
    5. Packaging an Extension http://dev.chromium.org/developers/d...ions/packaging
    (for example, chrome.exe --pack-extension="C:\MyTheme")
    6. It will creates 2 files: MyTheme.CRX and MyTheme.PEM

    For future modifications, edit CRX:
    chrome.exe --pack-extension="C:\MyTheme" --pack-extension-key="C:\MyTheme.pem"

    Thanks for this info sulasno, it was very helpfull.
    Now someone just needs to list all the ways one colour affects other things, for instance....
    Stauts Bar Background = ToolBar
    Status Bar Text = Tab Text
    ToolBar Button Text = Bookmark Text (thats the download toolbar)
