As we get more running parameters, and especially helpful for automation (runs to be repeated many times), mozmill should be able to take arguments from a configuration file. This should be runnable like mozmill -c path/to/conf.file Subsequent command line arguments would override values in the file. Two possible file forms: - .ini file: using the [DEFAULTS] section if no section specified (which is "special" in ConfigParser land), otherwise specifiable like mozmill -c conf.ini:mysection conf.ini may look like: """ [mysection] showall = app = firefox binary = /home/jhammel/firefox/firefox """ - a straight command line file: so you just write the command line arguments to a file which are parsed with file(filename).readlines().split()
Summary: mozmill should take command line arguments from a configuration file → [CLI] mozmill should take command line arguments from a configuration file
This is a nice to have, I think we may do this for 2.1, probably not for 2.0.

Mozmill will reach its end of life soon. We are currently working on getting all the tests for Firefox ported to Marionette. For status updates please see bug 1080766.
