    firefox-get

    Build Status

    Grabs Firefox package URLs

    Installation

    npm install firefox-get

    Method

    get(version, [options], [callback])

    version can be a number (20) or a string ('18.0b2'), or a channel version such as 'release', 'beta', 'aurora' and 'nightly'. Returns a promise, or can pass in a callback, which has an err and value argument signature.

    The module exports two methods: b2g and firefox with the same function signature, one for the Firefox browser, and the other for Firefox OS.

    There are some OS/version/language combinations that don't exist. Be sure to check the Firefox FTP to see if it exists when debugging any issues.

    options

    • os: Operating system. Available are the following:
      • 'linux-x86_64' (default);
      • 'linux-i686'
      • 'mac'
      • 'win32'
      • 'win64-x86_64' (Only works with aurora/nightly channels)
    • language: Any of the supported language codes. Here's a list of languages. 'en-US' is default.

    CLI

    Also provided is a CLI tool -- same options (os, language, version) as above. Pushes URL to stdout.

    # Specify version
    $ firefox-get -v nightly
    $ firefox-get --version 24
    
    # Language and OS
    $ firefox-get -v nightly -l en-US -o linux-x86_64
    $ firefox-get --version nightly --language en-US --os linux-x86_64
    
    # Also a B2G flag for the B2G URL instead of Firefox's
    $ firefox-get -b -v aurora
    $ firefox-get --b2g -v aurora
    

    Examples

    var get = require('firefox-get');
    var b2gGet = get.b2g;
     
    get('16.0.2').then(function (url) {
      console.log(url); // http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/releases/16.0.2/linux-x86_64/en-US/firefox-16.0.2.tar.bz2
    });
     
    get('nightly').then(function (url) {

    });
     
    // Get b2g package
