The browser extension is the glue between the runtime on your web page and the desktop app. It acts as a mediator and simply exchanges data back and forth.
You can install the browser extension from the Chrome Webstore.
Currently available for Chrome. Firefox, Opera and Safari will be supported later on.
For paranoids (like me!): The Spirit browser extension never captures, stores or transmits data or information anywhere. It only communicates the animation data between the editor (desktop app) and the connected web page to support realtime feedback.
Cannot install extension?
It might be possible that you've installed an extension that interferes with the Spirit extension. If for some reason you are unable to install the extension, please disable others and try again.
Is the desktop application showing a dialog that it cannot load data from the web page? Then it might be possible that another extension is interrupting the communication between the web page and the desktop app. Try disabling other extensions and try again.
If for some reason, you'd like to visit a web page that is not running the Spirit runtime and you'd like to use a different version of the runtime (by default it auto injects the latest version available). You can run the extension in some kind of debug mode by pressing
Alt+Shift+D before connecting.
