Using Firefox to debug web apps on any device

Introducing the Firefox Developer Tools Adapter

Debugging mobile apps in a world of multiple platforms will always be a classic case of "write once, debug everywhere". A monoculture avoids this problem, but brings a boatload of others, so there is really no way around that. Once we come to terms with this fact however, we can start demanding more from the tools that we use to do said debugging. Do we really have to become proficient in a multitude of tools, one for each platform that we intend to deploy on? How often must we context-switch and app-switch in order to get things done?

The Firefox Developer Tools Adapter presents a unique approach to the aforementioned problem. In this talk we will dive into the design and implementation of the Adapter, explain why it is a valuable addition to the mobile developer's toolchest and discuss how it can be used to solve real-life problems.
