BlueGriffonWriting modes in BlueGriffon

Thanks to the uplift, BlueGriffon is already able to render vertical text and I'm about to add the UI for that! Yay!

Vertical japanese text

hacks.mozilla.orgWhat do you want from your DevTools?

Every tool starts with an idea: “if I had this, then I could do that faster, better, or more easily.” The Firefox Developer Tools are built atop hundreds of those ideas, and many of them come from people in the web development community just like you.

We collect those ideas in our UserVoice forum, and use your votes to help prioritize our work.

Last April, @hopefulcyborg requested the ability to “Connect Firefox Developer Tools to [Insert Browser Here].” The following November, we launched Firefox Developer Edition which includes a preliminary version of just that: the ability to debug Chrome and Safari, even on mobile, from Firefox on your desktop. We called it Valence.

Good ideas don’t have to be big or even particularly innovative as long as they help you accomplish your goals more effectively. For instance, all of the following features also came directly from feedback on our UserVoice forum:

The color picker introduced in Firefox 31

The color picker introduced in Firefox 31

Though somewhat small in scope, each of those ideas made the DevTools more efficient, more helpful, and more usable. And that’s our mission: we make Firefox for you, and we want you to know that we’re listening. If you have ideas for the Firefox Developer Tools, submit them on UserVoice. If you don’t have ideas, vote on the ones that are already there. The right people will see it, and it will help us build the best tools for you.

If you want to go a step further and contribute to the tools yourself, we’re always happy to help people get involved. After all, Mozilla was founded on the open source ideal of empowering communities to collaborate and improve the Internet for all of us.

These are your tools. How could they be better?

BlueGriffonUpdating BlueGriffon against mozilla-central's trunk

I am in the process of updating BlueGriffon against mozilla-central's trunk. This is a huge effort, but you can already build a branch from github. Please note, this is a work in progress, and I am working primarily on MacOS X so this remains untested on Windows and Linux for the time being. You'll find build instructions in the github readme.

Air MozillaProduct Coordination Meeting

Product Coordination Meeting Weekly coordination meeting for Firefox Desktop & Android product planning between Marketing/PR, Engineering, Release Scheduling, and Support.

Mozilla Web DevelopmentBeer and Tell – March 2015

Once a month, web developers from across the Mozilla Project get together to design the most dangerous OSHA-compliant workstation possible. While searching for loopholes, we find time to talk about our side projects and drink, an occurrence we like to call “Beer and Tell”.

There’s a wiki page available with a list of the presenters, as well as links to their presentation materials. There’s also a recording available courtesy of Air Mozilla.

Michael Kelly: dxr-cmd

A certain blog post author was first with dxr-cmd, a command-line client for making queries to DXR, Mozilla’s source code browser. The tool is installed via pip and supports any query you can make via the web interface. Output can be run through a pager utility such as less, and you can also control the syntax highlighting applied to the output.

Daniel Maher: AudioAddict plugin for Plex

Next up was phrawzty, who was not present but shared a link to AudioAddict.bundle, a Plex plugin that allows you to play music from AudioAddict-based services (such as radiotunes.com, di.fm, and more).

Peter Bengtsson: Redunter

peterbe shared Redunter, a web service that helps hunt down unused CSS on your website. By embedding a small snippet of JS into your page and browsing through your website, Redunter will analyze the HTML being rendered and compare it to the CSS being served. The end result is a list of CSS rules that did not match any HTML that was delivered to the user. Redunter even works with sites that modify the DOM by watching for mutation events and tracking the altered HTML.

Scott Michaud: GPU-Accelerated Audio

ScottMichaud returns with more fun stuff using the WebCL extension! Scott shared a demo of WebCL-powered audio where a virtual microphone was surrounded by individual raindrop sounds. By controlling the rate of raindrops, you can simulate a higher audio load and see the difference that pushing audio processing to the GPU can make.

Les Orchard: Parsec Patrol

Senior Space Cadet lorchard shared Parsec Patrol, a vector-based space game for the web. While there’s no full game made yet, there is a webpage with several demos showing collision detection, spaceship navigation, missiles, point-defense systems, and more!

Matthew Claypotch: a9r

Have you ever seen an abbreviation like l10n or i18n and had no idea what it meant? Have no fear, Uncle Potch is here with a9r, the answer to the abbreviation problem! Simply install the command and enter in an abbreviation to receive a list of all words in the SOWPODS word list that match. Got a word that you need to abbreviate? Not only can a9r decipher abbreviations, it can create them!

Matthew Claypotch: socketpeer

In a slightly-less-whimsical vein, potch also shared socketpeer, a simple JavaScript library for 1:1 messaging via WebRTC Data Channels and WebSockets. Extracted from the Tanx demo that Mozilla showed at GDC 2015, socketpeer contains both a server API for establishing peer connections between users and a client API to handle the client-side communication. Potch also shared a demo of a peer-to-peer chat application using socketpeer.

Chris Van Wiemeersch: PhantomHAR

Next up was cvan, who shared PhantomHAR, a PhantomJS and SlimerJS script that generates an HTTP Archive (or HAR) for a URL. A HAR is an archive of data about HTTP transactions that can be used to export detailed performance data for tools to consume and analyze, and PhantomHAR allows you to easily generate the HAR for use by these tools.

Chris Van Wiemeersch: fetch-manifest

Next, cvan shared fetch-manifest, a small library that takes a URL, locates the W3C web app manifest for the page, fixes any relative URLs in the manifest, and returns it. This is useful for things like app marketplaces that want to allow people to submit web apps by submitting a single URL to the app they want to submit.

Bill Walker: robot-threejs

Last up was bwalker, who shared robot-threejs, an experimental steampunk robot game powered by three.js and WebGL. The game currently allows you to fly around a 3D environment that has 3D positional audio emitting from an incredibly mysterious cube. CAN YOU SOLVE THE CUBE MYSTERY?

This month we think we’ve really got something special with our Seki Edge keyboard-and-mouse combo. Order now and get a free box of Band-aids at no additional cost!

If you’re interested in attending the next Beer and Tell, sign up for the dev-webdev@lists.mozilla.org mailing list. An email is sent out a week beforehand with connection details. You could even add yourself to the wiki and show off your side-project!

See you next month!
