options is a plain
Object which must contain the following:
manifestURL: the manifest URL in the client (you must have obtained this after a call to node-firefox-find-app. It's something that looks like:
manifestURL: 'app://13ab1444-736d-8c4b-83a6-b83afb5f1ea4/manifest.webapp'in the result from
client: the remote client where we want to launch this app

You can have a look at the
examples folder for a complete example.
Running the tests
After installing, you can simply run the following from the module folder:
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.
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
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.
