Writing an extension for Firefox

It took me quite some time to understand the mechanisms of Web extensions in Firefox. I’m not sure I’m quite there yet but it’s a beginning.

Here are some things you might want to read:

Now I’m going to write my own:

  1. The basics are in place, I need to do quite a lot of thinking about the design and functionalities I want.
  2. Then I will package the .xpi file (easy, already done it locally, will just have to redo it when time comes).
  3. Then make friends with Firefox add-ons when I’m done with the rest.

Thank you Olivier M. and mat. This was a rough day.
