I’m working on adding support for Firefox Mobile to OpenAttribute this weekend. I’d hoped to get that done in time for the official launch, but, well, things have been a little busy. Firefox Mobile (Fennec) uses Electrolysis, a multi-process architecture that’s a little different from what I’m used to. Looking at the documentation and APIs, it actually looks a little closer to Chrome’s extension architecture. I was looking at tutorial videos yesterday, and downloaded Mark Finkle’s boilerplate addon to get a better look at the overlays.
As I explored the boilerplate, I opened the build script. Imagine my surprise when I read this comment at the top of the script:
#!/bin/bash # build.sh -- builds JAR and XPI files for mozilla extensions # by Nickolay Ponomarev <firstname.lastname@example.org> # (original version based on Nathan Yergler's build script) # Most recent version is at <http://kb.mozillazine.org/Bash_build_script>``
I have to assume this is based on the build script I developed for MozCC in 2004. I doubt anything from the original still survives (or at least I hope not), but appreciate the credit.
