Revision Content

Building a zip/tar file

To build a .zip or .tar.gz/.tar.bz2 package, just go to {{template.Source("xpinstall/packager")}} (in the objdir, if any) and type:

make

This will select a default package format, depending on the OS.

To specify a specific package format, use

make MOZ_PKG_FORMAT=format

where format is one of DMG (MacOS only), BZ2, TGZ and ZIP.

Building an installer

On platforms that support it, you can just go to {{template.Source("xpinstall/packager")}} (again, in the objdir if you use one) and type

make installer

This will do nothing on platforms that have no installer.
