How to Install on a Chromebook

Welcome to Atticus. One of the significant features of Atticus is that you can install a Progressive Web App (PWA) onto your Laptop. That way, you can access Atticus in your task bar without having to log in on a browser.  

This allows you to work on your project and then are able to disconnect from the internet to keep writing or formatting your project. You’ll only need to reconnect to the internet to either change projects or format. Additionally, once you do reconnect, it will sync up with the system. 

Let’s look at how to go about setting Atticus up with our Chromebook. 

Step 1: Open up Google Chrome

Go ahead and open up Google Chrome on your Chromebook.

Step 2: Log into Atticus

Once you’ve opened up Google Chrome, go to and log into Atticus.  

Step 3: Install the Atticus Web App

To install Atticus as an app on your Chromebook, simply click the “Install Atticus” icon in the url bar of your browser. 

The app will function exactly the same as a the browser version and they will synch automatically.

Once installed, you will find the Atticus icon in the bottom bar of your screen. For future easy access, simply right-click it and pin it to your bottom bar. 

Using Atticus Offline

Now that you have Atticus on your Chromebook, you can use it offline. All you need to do is open it up and verify that you’re logged in and select a book you want to work on. 

The only things you can’t do while offline are: 

  • Import a document
  • Export a document
  • Change between books

And that’s it. The next time you connect to the internet, Atticus will sync up your online work and you’re all set.
