As you probably know, Add-on SDK 1.14 was released on Tuesday. I’m pleased to also announce that Add-on Builder has been updated to support SDK 1.14. As well, the AMO Add-on Validator has also been updated to support SDK 1.14.
The one caveat with using Add-on Builder with SDK 1.14 is that the behaviour of console.log changed. If you rely on the Error Console window to view messages from console.log, you have two options:
- Change all calls to console.log to console.error, which will print out scary looking red messages in the Error Console’s ‘Errors’ tab
- Follow the instructions detailed in my blog post from yesterday to ensure that any calls in your add-on code to appear as they previously did in the ‘Messages’ tab of the Error Console window.
We’ve logged a bug to improve this experience via an update to the Add-on Builder Helper add-on so this will not be an issue in the future.
