management.getAll()

Retrieves an array of ExtensionInfo objects, one for each installed add-on.

Note that Google Chrome retrieves apps as well as add-ons. In Chrome you can distinguish apps from add-ons using the type property of ExtensionInfo.

This API requires the "management" API permission.

This is an asynchronous function that returns a Promise.

Syntax

Parameters

None.

A Promise that will be fulfilled with an array of ExtensionInfo objects, one for each installed add-on.
