Revision Content

With Firefox OS scheduled to have a major presence at Mobile World Congress 2013, it's important that we have a fairly thorough suite of documentation for its various key components. This page will help us track what those components are, who's working on them, and what their statuses are.

Important note: The documentation team will do its best to have as much of what's listed on this page covered as possible prior to MWC. We can't promise to have everything done, so it's extremely important that if you see something on this list that won't be ready to document, won't be ready to use, or won't be urgently needed before MWC is labeled as such! We need to be able to prioritize this list so we can allocate our writers efficiently.

Topic Writer(s) Status Notes
Alarm API   See WebAPI docs status page  
Ambient light sensor API   See WebAPI docs status page Finished, it appears.
Apps Mark Giffin   This covers a lot of pages, many of them complete. I will try to see if there are more important pages that need work for MWC and list them. Payments and In-app payments below are part of this.
Archive API   See WebAPI docs status page None. This API is not activate by default and not usable in any regular context.
Battery Status API   See WebAPI docs status page  
Browser API   See WebAPI docs status page Minimal; bits of this are floating around in the DOM reference
Camera API Jeremie Patonnier done  
Contacts API   See WebAPI docs status page None
Debugger Eric Shepherd Mostly done Needs some clean-up work, but it should be in pretty good shape.
Device Storage API David Bruant See WebAPI docs status page  
FileHandle API David Bruant See WebAPI docs status page  
GCLI (Command-line interface dev tool) Eric Shepherd Started Needs tons of work; I'm not sure this is really an MWC thing, but I'm told it needs to be done by early February. I don't know why.
Geolocation David Bruant See WebAPI docs status page  
Idle API Jeremie Patonnier See WebAPI docs status page Done

Technical review asked to Jonas Sicking
In-app payments Mark Giffin   In progress. I hid these docs by request c. 11/12. I am adding to them and will bring them back in time for MWC.
IndexedDB   See WebAPI docs status page Mostly done, may need compatibility fixes
Mobile Connection API   See WebAPI docs status page None
Mouse Lock API   See WebAPI docs status page  
Network Information API   Done  
Network Stats API   See WebAPI docs status page The XPCOM parts are documented but nothing else.
Payments Mark Giffin   In progress. I hid these docs by request c. 11/12. I am adding to them and will bring them back in time for MWC.
Permissions API   See WebAPI docs status page None
Permission table    

A page with this content describing which API is available in which context (installed/privileged/certified app...)

Persona Will Bamberg    
Power Management API Jeremie Patonnier See WebAPI docs status page None
Proximity Sensor API   See WebAPI docs status page Appears to be done.
Push Notifications API   See WebAPI docs status page No documentation yet
Screen orientation David Bruant See WebAPI docs status page  
Settings API Jeremie Patonnier See WebAPI docs status page Done

TCP Socket API   See WebAPI docs status page None
Time/Clock API David Bruant See WebAPI docs status page  
Vibration David Bruant See WebAPI docs status page  
Web Activities   See WebAPI docs status page BLOCKED
WebBluetooth   See WebAPI docs status page None
WebFM API   See WebAPI docs status page None yet
