How to create Google Chrome app

Few months ago suddenly my curiosity caught me regarding Google Chrome apps/extensions and how it is created. I did googling on the internet and finally I have decided to make my hands dirty and create Google Chrome app for my blog (blog.madadipouya aka[formerly] GeeksWeb ;-)). Anyway, what I have found is that creating the extension is relatively easy [just create a Json and prepare the logo] and in fact the app is only a launcher which redirects you to the website or web application. Of Course you also can send parameter in the URL to make the interface different or any other purposes.

During the searching process I have found few good resource which I have listed down here for anybody who is interested.

Bear in mind that in order to be able to publish your app on the official Chrome app store you need to do one time payment.
