[updated: 13th July] Call for App maintainers. Adopt an App

Right now I think it’s easier to make it working again, it’s a lot less work (even if some minor tweaks can be added). Enhancing it will be a second step.

guys, a couple of apps have “maintainers” here, but I see 0 bugs on bugzilla… :confused:

i see some guys started working on apps already. But, you are right

Thanks @salva - Since we are working to make the ‘standard’ web apps I’ve been trying to figure out how the data that Cost Control surfaces can be gleaned from standard browser APIs and so far to no avail. It seems like SIM data is not accessible using these standard APIs. If you know any way to get to the data it would be very useful.

Dialer app is only working now. You might find something useful in it.

If networks statistics has been removed, I’m afraid it would not be possible to gather any statistics. Any place where I can find what APIs are still available?

That’s not correct. chrome:// is just the protocol from which we serve the apps. DOM APIs are still available - we made changes so that all the b2g specific ones are now available to chrome:// documents and not to the old certified or privileged apps.

For the Camera app , I explain the “evolution” there : https://discourse.mozilla-community.org/t/camera-app/9723/9
I’m trying to use Camera API in my code but it doesn’t work … Code which works on older versions of Firefox OS don’t works on Transition version :-/
I would search in gecko code, but it’s a little bit hard to understand everything around camera API ^^U

Hello, I hope you are doing well! I wanted to help by adopting the Music app. I filed a bug for it here (Bugzilla Music App).

Is this still an ongoing project?

We need Firefox running on a light android as system UI and the system functionality (telephony, sms, wifi …) .
I know there is vmx working on it, maybe fabrice and some others , but the activity seems more en irc ( so, no conversation history …)
For my part and probably, like most of us, I’m unable to help on modifying android and adapt the system for Firefox :-/ … so, I can’t help for the moment, or maybe do some test when we will get something to install …

While as @sizvix said we are currently blocked on the smartphone side, those apps should be working on a desktop browser for instance. (or in another smartphone)
For sure you can’t test telephony app for instance, but let’s said for the music player, calendar, such kind of apps we can still work on them. Even if we can’t test them on a phone, converting them to standard web apps is still possible, at least for a major part.

So even if it’s a bit on hold right now (because of the lack of time and the priority in getting the basic system working) this project is still ongoing :slight_smile:
