Well, as long you don’t need to debug. Seems like the debug story is writing to Firebug’s Console.
Can we have a ‘jetbug’, a Firebug-like experience for jetpack? To start we’d need to understand what is jetpack. In part it is a Firefox extension: we should use Chromebug to investigate.
I ran the jetpack ‘boom’ tutorial from the about:jetpack URL. It is very short:
Then I inspected the “Boom” addition to the status bar:
In Chromebug we can see the implementation markup:
<iframe type="content" src="data:text/html,Boom%3Ci%3E!%3C/i%3E"
style="overflow: hidden; height: 16px; margin-top: 2px; margin-left: 4px; margin-right: 4px; width: 30px;">
So they put an
iframe into the status bar to support HTML! Cool.
console looks like an interface to Firebug. You can see the
jetpack object used in the tutorial. Also in the sandbox is some
jquery stuff and system functions.
Unfortunately there are ten other sandboxes whose role I don’t understand and I can’t find the source shown above. But it’s a start. (Chromebug 1.6a3 will include what I’ve learned so far).
Followups on the newsgroup please.
