XUL Explorer Extension Testing
For those that don’t know, XUL Explorer is a (I was going to say lightweight IDE, but it really isn’t. It’s more of a tool for begineers) for creating a XUL GUI. It allows you to quickly experiment with different XUL elements (such as tabs, buttons, grids, etc). It was originally created by Mark Finkle. You can checkout his developer’s page for more information.
I have submitted a enhancement patch to Mark Finkle (a beefy 1100 lines, but I only wrote 400 of those lines. 700 lines is an RDF library that I want to get rid of, because it should be 4 lines). The purpose of the patch is to bypass the steps created in testing an extension. It should be a simple, and just allows you to experiment your stuff in firefox. I haven’t tested thunderbird, but it may work there too.
I also documented how to use Extension Testing.
