About the SDK
The Jetpack SDK is a set of tools and APIs for building, testing, and packaging Firefox add-ons.
Version 0.3 features the first-two high-level APIs we're developing for simplified add-on development: an API for adding items to the context menu ([Labs/Jetpack/Reboot/JEP/112 JEP 112]) for web pages and an API for accessing resources bundled with your extension.
- Doc System
- Helper APIs (window watcher, observer service, and various others)
- Memory Profiler (source code)
A complete list of changes is available in the source code repository.
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.
