Extension Console

The Extension Console is a portal for activating and deactivating mods, discovering new ones, making edits to mods and bricks in the workshop, setting up personal integrations and databases, as well as updating other settings.

There’s a lot going on there, so if you feel overwhelmed, don’t worryβ€”this guide walks you through it!

Access the Extension Console

There are a couple of ways you can get to the Extension Console.

  • Click the settings gear at the top of the PixieBrix Sidebar

  • Click Open Extension Console from the Admin Console

Mods Page

When you first arrive in the Extension Console, you'll land on the Mods Page, which shows your mods.

The filter menu to the left gives you options for filtering results or searching for a specific mod. You can search by a mod name or id.

Workshop

The workshop is an advanced section and not required for most uses of PixieBrix.

At the core, each PixieBrix mod (and brick) is really a YAML file that details a mod's composition. In the workshop, you can view a mod's YAML file and edit as you see fit.

Search for the mod, brick, or integration you want to edit.

Select the desired mod by clicking on it. Inside, you'll see the YAML file detailing the composition of the mod, brick, or integration.

Integrations

PixieBrix integrates with many tools, such as Automation Anywhere, Google Drive, Trello, Airtable, and more. You can set local integrations via the Integrations menu in the Extensions Console.

These integrations will never access the PixieBrix server and will only be accessible on your device.

Learn more about Integrations.

Settings

You'll use the Settings section to make changes to the browser extension.

Use these settings when you need to:

  • Set or clear local logs

  • Enable beta features

  • Recover databases

  • Reset PixieBrix

  • Clear tokens

  • Check for updates
