    Build Status

    Abstract

    Connect middleware that delivers an application manifest compatible with Mozilla's Open Web Apps initiative

    Installation

    npm install connect-b2g
    

    More

    Open Web Apps are web apps that are installable on Mozilla's Boot 2 Gecko Operating System.

    Any website can be installed as an app on B2G but it needs to provide a manifest file.

    The manifest is a text file containing a json document. It can have any name but must have the extension .webapp.

    It will be requested from the webroot by the client device, much like a favicon.

    Example: http://domain.com/manifest.webapp

    This simple connect middleware delivers the mainfest from a given file path.

    This middleware does not enforce the manifest schema, format or content. Read about these topics here.

    Usage

    Much like any other connect middleware

    var connect = require('connect');
    var b2g = require('connect-b2g');
    
    var app = connect()
    	.use( b2g( 'path/to/manifest.webapp' ) )
    	.listen(3000);
    

    Running tests

    To run tests you need to install mocha and request.

    sudo npm install -g mocha
    npm install request
    
    mocha 
    

    Roadmap

    This project is intended as a utility middleware for B2G app developers.

    As such, whenever new features are added to the specs, they will be implemented here.
