Wikipedia is one of the most widely used websites globally. We built a simple extension to that displays similar pages at the top of every Wikipedia page!
A technique we use to visualise how Lateral recommendations would look and work on a website is to create a Chrome extension that inserts the recommendations at load time. In this blog post, I will create a Chrome extension that modifies this blog to set a custom background and to modify the HTML.
Give me five is an open source Chrome extension that allows you to recommend the content you push to Lateral based on the content of the page you’re currently visiting. It’s the same code base that the NewsBot Chrome extension is built upon.
We recently wrote about what our NewsBot Chrome extension does today I’m going to add to that and explain how it works behind the scenes. When building this project we approached it as if we were a user of the Lateral API to see what we could build.
