If you’ve been following our Developer Tools series on the Mozilla Hacks blog, you’ve seen the developer tools evolve from pure inspection to a debugging environment both for web sites and apps on desktop and mobile. Today we want to introduce you to the next step of evolution: adding in-browser editing features across devices.
Developers tell us that they are not sure how to start app development on the Web, with so many different tools and templates that they need to download from a variety of different sources. We’re solving that problem with WebIDE, built directly into Firefox. Instead of starting from zero we provide you with a functioning blueprint app with the click of a button. You then have all the tools you need to start creating your own app based on a solid foundation. WebIDE helps you create, edit, and test a new Web application right from your browser. It lets you install and test apps on Firefox OS devices and simulators and integrates the Firefox Developer Tools for seamless debugging and inspection across those devices. This is a first step towards debugging across various platforms and devices over WiFi using open remote debugging APIs.
