If we want people to develop offline apps, we should help them use appcache. And a first step is to allow clearing appcache.
For the moment you can use the "connect" command in the Firefox Command Line (shift + F2):

connect fxOS
fxOS appcache clear

Incidentally, the following command line appcache commands exist:
- appcache clear
- appcache list
- appcache validate
- appcache viewentry

Mike, you're sure about that? I don't think commands are remotely executable. And afaik, Firefox OS doesn't have any commands.

You are right, this wouldn't work.

Any idea what this could look like?

It needs to be in the toolbox, and it can't be in the main UI (not used often enough).
This is more about running commands against any remote device than it is about FxOS specifically.
Component: Developer Tools: WebIDE → Developer Tools: Graphic Commandline and Toolbar
Priority: -- → P3
Summary: Allow remote clearing of appcache → UI to run GCLI commands against remote devices
Triage. Filter on Lobster Thermidor.
Nice idea, but it's not been worked on in 4 years, and I don't see that the priority of GCLI has increased in that time, so I don't think we need to keep it on file.
