Before You Begin
You need two things to get started:
- A Google or Microsoft Account, or an email address: you register with PixieBrix using either Google or Microsoft account, or email
- Google Chrome Web Browser: PixieBrix installs as a Chrome Browser Extension
Step 1: Create a free PixieBrix Account
To create a PixieBrix account, visit https://app.pixiebrix.com
PixieBrix will show you a registration/sign in page:
Click Connect with Google or Microsoft, or use an email address.
Google/Microsoft will show you an account chooser. Select the account you want to use with PixieBrix and complete the login.
If you selected email, check your inbox for a magic link.
Step 2: Install the PixieBrix Chrome Browser Extension
After you register an account, PixieBrix will prompt you to visit the Chrome Web Store. Click Open Chrome Web Store.
On the Chrome Web Store listing, click Add to Chrome.
Chrome will prompt you to confirm the installation. Click “Add Extension”
When you click “Add extension”, Chrome will download the PixieBrix browser extension. Depending on your internet connection speed, the download may take 5 seconds - 1 minute to download.
Once Chrome has downloaded the PixieBrix Browser Extension, PixieBrix will automatically complete initialization.
Nice work! Now let's begin the Quick Start Guide
