In Bug 1371721, we created a new action, MESSAGES_ADD [1] (note the plural form) to batch our messages addition into the store.
This means that we are no longer using the MESSAGE_ADD [2] (note the single form) action in our code, except in tests [3].

We should get rid of this action and only use messagesAdd in all the tests, which represent better what the console is doing.

Do be more specific, the following :

> messageAdd(packet)

should be tranformed to :

> messagesAdd([packet])

In some places we were dispatching multiple messageAdd sequentially. These could be merged into one messagesAdd.

When this patch is done, all the mocha tests need to be successful.
The tests can be run with the following command: 

> cd devtools/client/webconsole && npm test

The constant [4], as well as the reducer handling this action [5] should be removed as well.

Pradeep, did you start working on this ?
I'm afraid I did remove the action in Bug 1368100.
But if you have already a patch ready for review, I'll review it and do the rebase on my patch.

I tried solving it and after running npm test, I get some error all of which are associated with length property. It says cannot read property length of undefined. I was not getting any idea of error so i decided to make a WIP patch and ask for feedback.

Review of attachment 8929611 [details] [diff] [review]:

There are some errors in the patch that might explain the test failures that you see.
Also, I am sorry to say that all of this is mostly covered in a working patch for Bug 1368100. Do you mind if we close this bug ?

messagesAdd takes an array : actions.messagesAdd([packet])

There is no problem closing this bug if this has been solved in Bug 1368100. :-)

Were you expecting a perf improvement here?
We got a 9% speedup on the mutations test while this bug and bug 1431334 landed:
Sorry, I thought I was on the console DAMP page. But this is an improvement related to inspector.
Nevermind my previous comment!
