developer.AMO Features

Please post comments on the blog post or AMO newsgroup -- not here.

One of the primary goals of developer.AMO is to aggregate resources into one place, but we shouldn't duplicate or copy content that we don't need to. Therefore, we can break content into two groups: aggregated and hosted.

Aggregated Content

1.6 Taggable Searchable Code Repository 
All extensions that have their source as viewable online should be accessible in a repository that's searchable. Users will also be able to select lines of code and tag them, such as "opens a new tab" or "creates new about: page" for easy access to code snippets.
