It should be noted that npm install my-extension will not create a build of the extension but download and install the package from npm. Also, this command will fail if the extension has a different name than my-extension unless the new extension has been already published on npm. This might be obvious to experienced developers but is misleading for newcomers.

Gracias don Angel por el video. Estaba realizando el tutorial pero con el nombre de mi extensión (contactos) y la verdad, como dice el comentario arriba, "este comando fallará si la extensión tiene un nombre diferente a my-extension a menos que la nueva extensión ya se haya publicado en npm."

Al parecer, mi implementación faya en el archivo contactos.json

@WolfgWhat am I supposed to do if I didn't publish the extension on NPM but I need to run the application with my extension included? Thanks.
