Safari Extension (unofficial)

Why is this unofficial? Well… Official Safari extensions require me to have Apple Developer Program membership and create a Apple developer certificate. Because Apple Developer membership costs $99 + tax a year, unforunately, I can’t add an official extension right now, but intend to eventually!

⚠️ Safari 13 has removed support for Legacy Safari Extensions. The below instructions are for Safari 12 and below.

To install Minimal Twitter on Safari, just follow the below instructions:

  1. Download the the Minimal Twitter GitHub repository
  2. Unzip the zipped Minimal Twitter file that you just downloaded.
  3. Go to Safari > Preferences and click on the Advanced tab.
  4. Check the box “Show Develop menu in menu bar”
  5. Now, go to Develop > Show Extension Builder
  6. Click the + button > Add Extension
  7. Go to the unzipped Minimal Twitter and select the twitter.safariextension folder.
  8. Click run
