A Shell Script to Create a Build of Firefox Extension

This shell script will create a build of a firefox extension in linux. This is created according to my details(eg, the guid has @binnyva.com in it) – but you can modify it and use it yourself.


app=$1
folder=$2

if [ $# -eq 0 ] ; then
	echo "Useage: sh build.sh  []"

elif [ $# -eq 1 ] ; then
	folder="$1@binnyva.com/"
fi

rm $app.xpi
cp -r $folder temp
cd temp
rm -rf .git

zip -r $app.xpi .>/dev/null
mv $app.xpi ..
cd ..
rm -rf temp
echo "Built $app successfully"
