For Developers

All commands need to be run in the extension directory

Setup

  1. Install dependencies
npm install

Development

  1. Open one terminal and run npm run dev
    • This runs webpack and reloads the bundle on every file change.
  2. Open a second terminal and run npm start
    • This starts Firefox Nightly with the plugin installed and reloads the plugin on every file change.
    • Alternatively, run npm run start:ff to use regular Firefox
    • If you want to use Chrome for the development you can load an unpacked extension pointing to the build directory. Make sure to reload the extension after every file change.

Debugging

  • When using Firefox I suggest opening the Browser Console with the shortcut CTRL + Shift + J
  • Make sure to click the Cog Icon and enable Show Content Messages. This makes the log statements from the code show up in the console.

Build

  1. npm run build
