Add UserScript support to Chrome using Xposed framework

How it works?

We hook a onUpdateUrl function in ChromeHook.kt, add URL comparison there and evaluate JavaScript using the javascript: scheme.

Adapt to your Chrome version

The author has tested ChromeXt with the latest Android Chrome 108.0.5359.79, and it works well. Please consider update your Android Chrome first.

For other vesions, it might not work. To adapt to those versions, one only need to find out one method name in its smali code. First use apktool to decompile the split_chrome.apk file pulled from the installation of Chrome on your phone, then follow the hints in UserScript.kt to get the correct name and modify it in the SharedPreferences of Chrome at /data/data/


Pick up the latest built APK from Action and install it. You can then install UserScripts from popular sources: any URL that ends with .user.js. Currently, ChromeXt supports @match, @run-at and @grant GM_addStyle since they are everything the author needs to perform all sort of tasks.

To manage scripts installed by ChromeXt, here is a simple front end.
