MemChaser is a Firefox extension which keeps track of the garbage collector activity and memory usage.

How to build

Before you can test or build the extension you will have to init the Add-ons SDK submodule. After it has been done, activate it's environment:

git submodule init
git submodule update
cd addon-sdk
source bin/activate
cd ..

To test the extension run:

cd extension
cfx run

To build simply run ant and the default build script/target will be invoked:


You can override the build number used in the filename:

ant -Dbuild.number=1

To build for release (no build version in filename):

ant -Drelease=true

You can also build directly using cfx:

cd extension
cfx xpi
