Description

7 years ago
The "views" web app (views.mustache) has proven to be a very useful client for testing and development. Running the app as a web app allows us to use the full suite of browser dev tools when developing or troubleshooting.

Let's make the views app a robust client for development.

* Resolve app check-in issues and general loading flakiness in Firefox
* Make sure account menu works for app
* Make sure popup xmessages have a handler in views app
* Update handling code in views to mimic handling code in Obj-C app.
I made a start on this in https://bitbucket.org/mozillapancake/pancake/changeset/d0eeb61bc605 thru https://bitbucket.org/mozillapancake/pancake/changeset/dc92dea1fd5e

.. that work includes a port of the handleCallWithName method and implementations of a few other methods in there to get closer parity btw. the views.app (browser) and ios experience. Its just a beginning though.

Doing https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=754339 will resolve the PostMessage flakiness we currently deal with in Firefox. However, this would be an architectural change, and I'm personally unwilling to destabilize anything until after launch.
