Right now the project is developing one product: the Add-on SDK. The Add-on Builder is now in read-only mode and will be turned off completely in April 2014. Please download your data before then. Learn more.
- The Add-on SDK is a locally-hosted development environment that allows you to easily build add-ons for Firefox.
- The Add-on Builder was an online development environment which allowed you to create and store your add-ons using only your browser.
You can access these products from the Add-on Developer Hub.
If you'd like to learn more about developing add-ons with the Add-on SDK, please visit the Add-on Developer Hub. We've listed some extra resources for add-on developers below:
You can find help here:
- the Mailing list
- the #jetpack IRC channel on Mozilla's IRC network.
- the Stack Overflow "firefox-addon-sdk" tag
If you find a problem, you can report a bug.
