Crossfire

Crossfire is a Firebug extension which implements a JSON protocol to allow remote clients (like an IDE or code editor) to connect to Firebug.

Source Repository Structure

Build Firebug XPI

In order to build Firebug *.xpi package run following in your command line (you need Apache Ant)

$ cd crossfire
$ ant

The *.xpi file should be located within ./release directory.

Run Firebug From Source

The extension directory directly contains Firebug extension files and so, you can run Firebug directly from it. This is the recommended way how to quickly test your code changes and provide a patch.

  1. Locate your Firefox profile folder
  2. Open extensions/ folder, create if it doesn't exist.
  3. Create a new text file and put the full path to your development folder inside. (e.g. C:\firebug\extension\ or ~/firebug/extension/). Windows users should retain the OS' slash direction, and everyone should remember to include a closing slash and remove any trailing spaces.
  4. Save the file with Firebug ID as it's name firebug@software.joehewitt.com
