The Smoke Jumper project is an effort to bring dead simple, secure, P2P file sharing to Firefox.

Follow these steps, but use the Alder branch instead of mozilla-central.
In the root of the project, run the following:
$> npm install $> NODE_ENV=development ./app.js
This defaults to http://localhost:3000/. A few things are hard-coded at the moment, so it's best to run it on that port.
Open a browser to http://localhost:3000/ you'll be redirected to a unique URL. Open that url in another tab.
Tips & Tricks:
This is mostly a placeholder for running the basic demo, for now:
Running two Firefox profiles simultaneously:
First, we create two profiles that we're going to use to test with. For this we use the profile manager:
Then we run an instance of our Alder build for each profile we just created. I named them "Andy" and "Beth".
