Mozilla JavaScript Debugging Documentation

This repository holds the specifications for:

  • Mozilla's Debugger API, for implementing JavaScript debuggers and tools of that sort, and
  • Mozilla's remote debugging protocol, for communicating with such debuggers over some sort of byte stream.

Officially, this documentation is on the Mozilla wiki—that's where the links take you—but we'd much rather use GitHub for revisions than MediaWiki's revision control, so we've checked it in here.


This repository's master branch tracks the wiki's contents. Revisions in progress, proposals for changes, and anything else that hasn't been placed on the wiki should go on a branch. Independent proposals should go on independent branches, I guess.

Ben's Birthday

Please join me in wishing Ben Collins-Sussman, a very fine fellow, a happy 40th birthday!

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
