About The SDK

Right now, this SDK is for people who know how to use a command-line shell, as the development tools are only usable from there. We're also working on a web-based development environment called FlightDeck that will make it even easier to collaborate and build real Firefox extensions, in the spirit of the original Jetpack Prototype's user interface—but that's not ready quite yet.


First, obtain the SDK in your favorite compression format:

Once you've got that, just unpack the archive, open the jetpack-sdk/README.txt file, and follow its instructions.

Known Issues

The following major issues have been reported for 0.1, and will be fixed in a forthcoming bugfix release:

Note that this is a very early release of the Jetpack SDK, and as such its developer ergonomics aren't yet where we want them to be. It's likely that many things you try won't work and you'll have no idea why; this isn't your fault! Please file a bug and we'll try to fix it.

Feedback and Bug Reports

We'd love to know of any feedback you have for this release. Feel free to post them to the mozilla-labs-jetpack Google Group, or file a bug.
