Firebug Releases

  • Firebug 1.11 alpha 1 this/next week
  • Firebug 1.10.3 at the end of August (with Firefox 15)
  • Faster Release Cycle
    • As soon as we have enough new features (~8-10?) let's do the release
    • There should be Firebug 1.11 till the end of the year

  • Implement JSD2
    • Let's start on it!
    • First step: design remoting architecture in Firebug
    • Second step: reimplement the Script panel
    • Bug 782683 - Image upload broken on Firebug wiki (SSL connection error)
  • Doesn't have to be part of 1.11 (depends how far we can get)

Firebug Commands

  • Honza: we should not duplicate features, which are already available in built-in command line, let's try to keep Firebug unique and different to make users the reason to install it.
  • Simon: Our commands are more about JavaScript and such. I really dislike the scope idea. And discovery. I don't actually think collisions are a big problem. It's hard. Or might be. And note; Firefox's thing is much more meta. We can add a prefix. Like, ":firebug cd something"? Seems ugly.
  • Steven: we can introduce a new global 'firebug' available in the command line, which contains all the built in commands. It would make the built-in command better discoverable.
    • firebug = f<tab> (autocompleted)
    • f<tab>.<tab> would give you the list

Things we should focus on:

  • Better discoverability of built-in commands (autocompletion)
  • Autocompletion for Command Editor
  • Perhaps, avoid conflicts between built-in CMD API and page API?
