B2G Scripts

Contains a single cli script - b2g-scripts with a growing number of subcommands.

In general it is assumed you have a working b2g emulator/desktop/phone with marionette turned on and listening on port 2828.

Commands like reload-app are not going to be useful if you're not in DEBUG mode (everything is in offline cache).

Install

# notice the -g option for global
npm install b2g-scripts -g

Recomended B2G Desktop settings

cd $GAIA_DIR
make DEBUG=1

Commands

Run b2g-scripts with no arguments to see the list of current commands. Each command has sub options as well and all respond to the --help option.

b2g-scripts watch --help

b2g-scripts watch

Watches a directory for web dev changes js/css/html/properties files. Executes a cli command. You can use this to chain other sub commands.

# I use this all the time to reload app when I am making rapid
# html/css changes
b2g-scripts watch "b2g-scripts reload-app"

b2g-scripts cmd

Runs any of the marionette commands with n number of arguments
