Course on Mozilla Education and Technologies @ Evry 2012


We have listed the most important projects we have that are fairly easy to do with an add-on. Those are suggestions for beginners. If you have an other idea, feel free to do that, but it might be better to ask someone on the IRC channel first to check if it's already in progress and how much work it could take.

If you have never created an add-on before, check the Mozilla documentation, an add-on tutorial and the Songbird developer intro.

If you have problems, feel free to contact us

If you've never used Nightingale before, check it out. It's the easiest way to see what's missing :-)

Nightingale is a fork of Songbird, so the documentation is mainly on the Songbird wiki, some articles may be outdated, feel free to ask if you are not sure !
