Android Components > Samples > Firefox Sync

A simple app showcasing how to use FxaAccountManager together with BackgroundSyncManager and browser-storage-sync components to (periodically) synchronize FxA data in a background worker.


This app demonstrates how to synchronize Firefox Account data (bookmarks, history, ...).

This app could be "easily" generalized to synchronize other types of data stores, if another implementation of concept-storage is used.

Following basic bits of functionality are present:

  • Configuring FxaAccountManager and BackgroundSyncManager
  • Making Syncable stores (such as PlacesHistoryStorage) available to background workers via GlobalSyncableStoreProvider
  • Configuring listeners to monitor account status (logged in, logged out) and sync status (in-progress, finished, querying local data)
