Weeks of Contribution- WebExtension Session7

Date : 29th August 2017

Time: 8:30 – 9:30

IRC channel: #MozillaTN

This is our first series of the WebExtension webseries. The main agenda of the program is to get started with Mozilla community and discuss the syllabus we will be learning in this series.

In our previous session we get learned about executeScript API, where we built a small youtube controller.

In the seventh session we are going to learn about building a context menu.

Agenda

  • Introduction about Add-ons Contest
  • Context Menu Video

Problem Statement

When we select some text, we get a suggestion to search with our default search engine when we do right click.
So instead of having only one search engine, our idea is to have more than one search engine listed so users can use their required search engine to searching the text.

MozillaIN Contest

Mozilla India community has declared a contest on developing Add-ons which should be working on Firefox 57 properly (means WebExtension). Best Extensions will be choosen and the winners will be getting the Limited edition AMO Pendrive. Last date is end of October 2017.

You can get started with building the context menu from the following video and this video is contributed by Trishul.

All the code samples discussed in the above video is available in the github and the detailed blog post on this particular API is shared before. Link of post
