chrome-native-messaging

Communicate with Chromium or Google Chrome extensions, as a native application.

For more information on what I mean, please look at nativeMessaging documentation.

API

This package provides 2 functions: read-from-ext and send-to-ext.

read-from-ext

(defun read-from-ext (stream)
  "Reads the string sent from the extension. The stream is usually *standard-input*.")

A typical call to this function looks like this (using the jsown package to parse the JSON):

(let* ((buffer (chromium-native-messaging:read-from-ext *standard-input*))
       (json-object (jsown:parse buffer)))
  ; code
  )

send-to-ext

(defun send-to-ext (string output-stream)
  "Sends a string to the extension. Usually, output-stream is *standard-output*.")

A typical call looks like this (again, using the jsown package):

(chrome-native-messaging:send-to-ext
 (jsown:to-json
  (jsown:new-js
    ("foo" "bar")))
 *standard-output*)
