Notes

  • Update on Service Workers from nsm
    • jdm working on caches
    • Basic demo is ready.
    • nsm working on infrastructure to install and upgrade workers this week.
    • marcosc suggests getting try build in front of mobile IG to play with
    • Ehsan is concerned about performance
      • nsm will try to get data on b2g
  • Network Information API Discussion
    • https://etherpad.mozilla.org/KqTX6LOY6A
    • bandwidth: not accurate so can be misleading => use type instead
      • Ehsan suggests using a WebIDL enum here
    • metered: true, false, unknown
      • Ehsan would rather see connectionConstraints attribute (very useful) over "metered" and just let people use heuristics around "type"
    • Ehsan really likes the idea of integrating captive portal detection here ... but could perhaps go into navigator.onLine/offLine (not sure of capitalization here)
    • Marcos has concerns about where in the process of data transfer this API fits
    • Andrew will hook people who've suggested they want this API up with Gene and Fernando
  • (Issue from Donovan Preston) https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=903830 exposes an issue with the TCPServerSocket api
    • listen(0) is useful to allow the underlying network stack to choose an unused port
    • however because of IPC, the actual chosen port cannot be synchronously known
    • I would like to suggest adding a new event, onlistening or similar, after which the localPort variable will be properly set to the actual port that was chosen by the network layer
  • Silent SMS
    • of interest for user registrations
    • current messaging API allows this
      • need for this with privileged apps, too (not just certified like right now)
      • Gene doesn't think exposing this to privileged apps is on the roadmap, at least right now
    • there's also a need for silent calls
    • Harald will raise these issues on dev-webapi
