developer.AMO Objectives

  • Give new developers a starting point for creating an add-on
  • Give existing developers a place to stay up-to-date on add-on development news, plans, and features
  • Make development easier with documentation, tutorials, and examples all in one place
  • Build a community of add-on developers to promote an exchange of ideas

It should be possible for someone brand new to Mozilla add-on development to do all of the following from developer.AMO:

  • find out why they would want to build a Firefox extension by reading case studies
  • see examples of how add-ons work
  • learn how to make a basic extension, and how to build that extension out into what they want
  • get support when they have questions
  • upload their add-on to AMO and have it accepted the first time (because policies are readily accessible and easy to understand)
