Firefox/Projects/Pull More AMO Data into Addons Manager

From MozillaWiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The detailed view for a specific add-on in the Add-ons Manager currently contains a very small subset of the available AMO data. Previously, the amount of data shown was restricted by the available screen real estate. The Add-ons Manager rewrite greatly increases the available screen real estate, allowing for new possibilities. By including more of the available AMO data, users would not have to switch between the Add-ons Manager and the AMO site as much.
