node-firefox-connect Build Status

Connects to a Firefox debuggable runtime.

Install with NPM

This is part of the node-firefox project.

Installation

From git

git clone https://github.com/mozilla/node-firefox-connect.git
cd node-firefox-connect
npm install

Usage

Connects to a Firefox runtime, given a port number, and returns a client that can be used to interact with said client.

// `connect` returns a Promise
connect(portNumber).then(function(client) {

});

Example

var connect = require('node-firefox-connect');

connect(1234)
  .then(function(client) {
    // Let's show for example all the running apps
    client.getWebapps(function(err, webapps) {
      webapps.listRunningApps(function(err, apps) {
        console.log("Running apps:", apps);
      });
    });
  });

History

This is based on initial work on fxos-connect by Nicola Greco.
