Developing AntiContainer

Build Prerequisites

  • Working python with either json (2.7+) or simplejson installed
  • Optionally


  1. Clone the repository
  2. See Setting up an extension development environment.
  3. Create an extension proxy file as described in 2.
  4. Create/update plugins.json: cd build; python
  5. Build an xpi: build/ ac.xpi

Creating/Updating plugins

It is recommended to create and test plugins outside of plugins/ first. This has the added benefit that changes will take by only closing and opening the Manager window as opposed to restarting the whole browser. Once you're done move the new plugin .json to the plugins/ directory and update plugins.json as described above

Currently the documentation about plugins lives at wiki/Writing plugins.

Adding features or developing fixes

If you'd like to add a new feature or develop a major fix, then please file an issue before. This will ensure before you do all the work, that the feature or fix is something we're willing to pull later.


To forcefully reload the built-in plugins:

  1. Set nglayout.debug.disable_xul_cache to true
  2. Open the Error/Browser Console
  3. Execute Components.utils.unload("chrome://dtaac-modules/content/plugins.jsm")
  4. Re-open the manager window
You can’t perform that action at this time.
