We're looking for a user researcher to understand the needs of developers and designers. Is this you or someone you know? Check out the post: https://mzl.la/2IGzdXS



Ny name is Lion Kimbro, I have a website and a blog.


Well, that's torn it! I added a ton of stuff, populating the XPConnect series.

I hope it doesn't trample too many toes, and I hope it's not too far out of stylistic boundaries. Where I cross them, may someone please correct them.



I really want to merge in what I've worked hard to learn, but when I set to do so, I'm stopped by the enormity of the task.

The problem is that the desired structure here is very imposing. To work in what I've learned about nsIEnumerator, (specificly, the weird way of simply traversing a list,) I will have to write an enormous fully detailed description of the nsIEnumerator.

See, at the top of the Interfaces page, it says to look to the nsIObserver documentation as an example of what the page should look like. Well, I don't have time for that. I just want to contribute what I know: "Here's how to traverse a list."

It's too much, and I end up contributing nothing.

The other problem is understanding just where to put stuff. Do I put this thing under Interfaces? Do I put it under XPConnect? Or do I put it under JavaScript?

I don't know, and again: the hesitation leads me to not contribute.

I really want to contribute what I know, though.

I suppose what I am looking for here is encouragement and direction. I can't spend a lot of time here. I just believe that if someone reads this, they can help me understand where to place what I have. It is valuable; I feel that there should be some sort of space for it.

It's a wiki. :-) Just add your content where you think it goes, in the best form you can manage, and others will improve its formatting and location. Be not afraid! (User:Callek may object to this, but I think it's good advice.) JesseW 01:38, 6 Jul 2005 (PDT)
PS I've just added a link to your stuff on Enumerator to the page. Feel free to migrate it all over if you want... JesseW 01:43, 6 Jul 2005 (PDT)
FWIW, I do not disagree with you, adding it as an article where you think best is very useful, better to have the article, than not at all. --Callek 10:08, 6 Jul 2005 (PDT)
JesseW is right -- you are encouraged to add your content to the wiki where you think it best fits, and if necessary, someone else will move it along elsewhere. I suggest you start a new page for your content, treating it more as an article than as part of a reference page, and write it up there. Link the article off of whichever main topic pages you think are appropriate. Any help and content you can provide is very much appreciated.

Actually, now that I think about it, probably the best thing for you to do, LionKimbro, is to add a statement to your Wiki material that you make it available under the same license as Devmo uses, then anybody can migrate it as needed. JesseW 22:44, 6 Jul 2005 (PDT)


Hello; I created a miniature wiki to stash notes about Mozilla-Javascript-XPConnect type stuff a few months ago.

I'd like to merge the notes into Devmo, if at all possible.

Presently, there are a number of tutorial-like explanations, and some examples of how to use various components- nsIEnumerator, nsIRegistry, appShellService, yadda yadda yadda.

Right now, I'm just figuring out how this place works.

User:Dria says to look to Core JavaScript 1.5 Reference for an example.

I'm thinking, "Put my notes on the XPConnect pages."

But is that really right? What if the XPConnect pages are really supposed to be about just the XPConnect piece itself, and not really about how to use the Mozilla API from Javascript?

I continue to read pages, looking for appropriate places.
