How to convert animated curve to a mesh so I can add particle properties?

Hi Blenders,

I’ve created the following animated extruded curve as a test.

I would like to add particles to the surface of this animated ‘tube’.
In order to do that I need to convert it to a mesh first but then I loose the animation.

Is there an addon that automatically converts the curve into a mesh for every frame of the animation? Or is there another way?
