Description (last modified by tlucas)


With #7020, we started signing packages for Adblock Plus for Firefox development builds with Node.js. To fully publish those builds, we also need to provide an updates.json, where Firefox clients can check for new versions, as well as a list of previous devevlopment builds, which is currently available here

What to change

Relying on --target from the command introduced in #7020 pointing to a folder, where all previous development builds exist, implement the following:

Let npm run publish -- gecko ...

  • remove retired development builds from the --target folder (currently, we keep a maximum of 150 builds)
  • create a symlink called 00latest.xpi, linking to the most recent development build
  • render a index.html. which lists all currently available development builds, as seen here

A hint: this functionality is currently available in abpssembly's NightlyBuild.

Since this is already in master I'll assume it's fine to include in Adblock-Plus-3.4.1-for-Chrome-Opera-Firefox, please let me know if this should be backed-out instead.
