This page tracks documentation status and work progress for XPCOM documentation. Feel free to contribute!

Summary

{{DocStatus('Mozilla/Tech/XPCOM','[]', '', '[ { "keywords": ["dev-doc-needed"], "product": ["Core"], "component":["XPCOM"],"resolution":["FIXED", "INVALID", "WONTFIX", "DUPLICATE", "WORKSFORME", "INCOMPLETE", "SUPPORT", "MOVED", "EXPIRED"], "bug_status":["RESOLVED", "VERIFIED", "CLOSED"], "include_fields":["id", "target_milestone", "summary"], "order": "target_milestone desc"} ]' )}}

Goals

  • Move existing documentation into the proper places in the content hierarchy.
  • Add or update introduction to XPCOM, explaining what it is, what it does, and how it works to newcomers to Mozilla.
  • Improve and add content about wrappers and how they work.
  • Find community members that are interested in and willing to take on trying to get the docs up-to-date
  • Consider/discuss and potentially implement a system for automatic generation of content, or at least for helping to automatically figure out what's missing where.
