node-firefox-find-devices Build Status

Find attached FirefoxOS devices using ADB.

Install with NPM

This is part of the node-firefox project.

When Firefox OS devices are plugged in via USB, they can be found using the Android Debug Bridge. Once found, a test for the presence of Firefox OS on the device can separate them from normal Android devices.


From git

git clone
cd node-firefox-find-devices
npm install

If you want to update later on:

cd node-firefox-find-devices
git pull origin master
npm install


npm install node-firefox-find-devices


findDevices() // returns a Promise

Finding devices

var findDevices = require('node-firefox-find-devices');
// Return all listening runtimes
findDevices().then(function(results) {

Running the tests

After installing, you can simply run the following from the module folder:

npm test

To add a new unit test file, create a new file in the tests/unit folder. Any file that matches test.*.js will be run as a test by the appropriate test runner, based on the folder location.

We use gulp behind the scenes to run the test; if you don't have it installed globally you can use npm gulp from inside the project's root folder to run gulp.

Code quality and style

Because we have multiple contributors working on our projects, we value consistent code styles. It makes it easier to read code written by many people! :-)

Our tests include unit tests as well as code quality ("linting") tests that make sure our test pass a style guide and JSHint. Instead of submitting code with the wrong indentation or a different style, run the tests and you will be told where your code quality/style differs from ours and instructions on how to fix it.
