Nocturnal is a simple Python scraper script that crawls Mozilla's Nightly FTP folders to build This repo contains all the resources to build all Nightly pages.

You'll need to run the scraper script from a machine with an Internet connection.


Make sure you grab all the submodules.

git clone --recursive


Specify an output directory (it shouldn't be the same directory as the repo) and allow a few seconds for the script to scrape Mozilla's FTP server.

./ --output-dir html


To deploy nocturnal to, you'll need to file a bug in Bugzilla under "Server Operations".

You can use this bug template to file a deploy bug. Easy!

You only need to get IT to deploy if you've changed the code; the command is run every hour.
