webextensions-examples and Hacktoberfest

Hacktoberfest is an event organized by DigitalOcean in partnership with GitHub. It encourages contributions to open source projects during the month of October. This year the webextensions-examples project participated.

“webextensions-examples” is a collection of simple but complete and installable WebExtensions, that demonstrate how to use the APIs and provide a starting point for people writing their own WebExtensions.

We had a great response: contributions from 8 new volunteers in October. Contributions included 4 brand-new complete examples:

So thanks to DigitalOcean, to the add-ons team for helping me review PRs, and most of all, to our new contributors:

    How does https://github.com/Standard8/example-webextension/ fit in here? Is it the *recommended* starting point (blueprint) for a new webextensions based add-on?

    Examples are nice. A clean, unpolluted setup is nice as well. Both would complement each other.
