With Bitcoin growing in popularity and hitting an all-time high, I decided to create a simple tool to stay up to date with the latest price of bitcoin. Bitcoin Tracker is a new extension to quickly show you the current price of a bitcoin and when opened, the extension will show you a chart of the price over the past 30 days.
Animated Badge Icon
Weather Extension was recently updated to have a spinning indicator in the badge icon to let the user know the extension is loading when it is clicked. I wanted to give the user immediate feedback. The challenge was that the badge toolbar icon is limited to static images. I was able to get around this by using canvas and generating multiple images that update the icon. I’ve haven’t come across anything like this so I thought I would share.
