How to build

Before you can test or build the extension you will have to init the Add-ons SDK submodule.

git submodule update --init

To run tests against the extension:

ant test

To manually test the extension:

ant run

To specify the Firefox binary include -Dbinary=path/to/firefox on the command line.

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 number in filename):

ant release

You can also use the Add-ons SDK directly using cfx:

cd addon-sdk
source bin/activate
cd ../extension
