Side View

An experiment with opening mobile views of pages in the sidebar

Installing

Use npm install, then npm start.

To use the build intended for a Shield Study use SHIELD=1 npm run build

To use the build intended for addons.mozilla.org (as opposed to Test Pilot) use npm run build-amo

Installing manually

Check out the repository. Go to about:debugging in Firefox, and select Load Temporary Add-on. Select a file in the addon/ directory.

Or: install web-ext (like npm i -g web-ext) and run web-ext run -s addon/ --browser-console -f nightly

Pre-built add-on

The version of the addon in the production branch is built into a signed XPI (clicking on this link will install the add-on).

Using

This adds a context menu item: Open in sidebar or Open link in sidebar. Select that, and the sidebar will be opened with a mobile view of the page.

Test Plan

The QA/test plan is documented in this document.
