Install gnome extension from website with command line

Hello.

I have an ansible script to run my complete linux arch installation. I also want to install all used gnome shell extensions. Some extensions are available in the repositories from pacman or yay. I install them by using the following command :

    - yay -S --noconfirm gnome-shell-extension-dash-to-panel-git
    - gnome-extensions enable dash-to-dock@micxgx.gmail.com

But sometimes it is hard to find out the mail adress of the author to enable the extension.
Is there a better way to install directly from the web site. I don't want to use the browser plugin from gnome or firefox !

Should it work to download the files from github and extract them to the local extension folder withour running

make && make install.

This command doesn't work for ALL extensions.

I hope I could explain the problem in a way that somebody could help me.
Thanks

That's not the mail address of the author, but the unique ID of the extension. It appears directly in the path of the extension, so finding it is as easy as reading the PKGBUILD of the extension or running "pacman -Ql" on the package after installation smile
