Google Innovator Academy Dashboard

A Chrome extension to provide more features to every new tab

September 12, 2017

I was accepted into the Google Innovator Academy in May of 2016 as part of the #COL16 cohort. Since my project has been all about using Javascript to enhance teaching, I thought I would build a Chrome extension for the cohort.

I wanted to embed a calendar in there and provide a task list. I wired it up to the Task API provided by Google and tied that into the TODO MVC Framework.

I want to update this to streamline it a little more. Do you have any ideas for a more useful implementation? Maybe if the background was transparent so it wouldn’t interfere with your theme…

Let me know in the comments below!
