[theme] Support for Synthetic APKs (Fennec / Android)
APK FACTORY - A Cloud service to make APKs from Open Web Apps 1. Verify input is valid 2. Generate APK signing key for each developer* 3. Sign the APK - Cache the APK for use at install time - Create new APK signing keys for most developers - Store and use legacy APK signing keys for Android-savvy developers DOWNLOAD / INSTALL - native flow, with standard install confirmation dialog - dialog lists permissions requested by privileged apps - user must enable “unknown sources”; Marketplace/Firefox can help explain/direct - reinstall from same Marketplace will update existing app, but reinstall from different Marketplace may duplicate app - TBD how to handle reinstall of app installed as bookmark USE & MANAGE - launch via native Home, All Apps, and Recents screens - quit, switch, and manage apps via native interfaces - app appears like native app in all Android interfaces - runtime prompts to access privileged APIs, à la FxOS - TBD crash reporting and permissions management UPDATE & REMOVE - runtime will periodically check for and download updates - should be similar to native update - native remove flow - if user removes Firefox, app prompts user to reinstall it - TBD persist app data after Firefox removal
