Project News

  • Alex recently created the locale-updater extension to aid in localizing SDK-based add-ons, and longtime l10n contributor Jean-Bernard Marcon blogged about the workflow for localizing SDK-based add-ons using Alex’s add-on over on the Babelzilla blog.
  • I wrote up a quick review of dotjs, an SDK-based add-on by Mozilla webdev Ricky Rosario that makes browser hacking that much easier.
  • This week SDK contributor Hernan Colmeiro will be giving not 1 but 2 talks on the SDK, first at the MDN Hack Day in Buenos Aires on Friday and then at Mozcamp on the weekend.
