node-firefox-find-simulators Build Status

Find installed Firefox OS simulators.

Install with NPM

This is part of the node-firefox project.

Current limitations


This is a work in progress. Things will probably be missing and broken while we move from fxos-simulators to node-firefox-find-simulators. Please have a look at the existing issues, and/or file more if you find any! :-)


From git

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

If you want to update later on:

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


npm install node-firefox-find-simulators


findSimulators(options) // returns a Promise

where options is a plain Object with any of the following:

  • version: only return simulators if their version matches this

If no options are provided, or if options is an empty Object ({}), then findSimulators will return all installed simulators.

Finding simulators

var findSimulators = require('node-firefox-find-simulators');
// Return all installed simulators
findSimulators().then(function(results) {
// Returns all installed simulators, this time with error handling
findSimulators().then(function(results) {
}, function(err) {
// Returns only v2.1 simulators
findSimulators({ version: '2.1' }).then(function(results) {
// Returns only v2.1 or v2.2 simulators
findSimulators({ version: ['2.1', '2.2'] }).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.


This is based on initial work on fxos-simulators by Nicola Greco.
