WPD 660: Debugging service workers, jQuery and React declare script integrity, new WebExtensions APIs in Firefox

  • Posts

    • Debugging service workers and push messages with Firefox DevTools, @………’s post
      • Firefox’s “about:debugging” page also provides a “Push” button next to the service worker entry, which enables testing the service worker’s "push" event handler (independently of the network or push server).
  • Info

    • The HTML Standard defines three special attributes for the <ol> element (ordered list), spec (mdn)
      • An ordered list can be descending (reversed attr.; not supported in Edge), start at a different ordinal value (start attr.), and have one of several numbering types (type attr.; e.g. "I" indicates uppercase Roman numerals).
  • Media

    • @………: “Progressive web apps and what’s next for mobile”, 23-min talk
      • 3:40 “Distribution is the single hardest problem in all of software.” 8:54 “The web is wide but shallow, on mobile devices today. It can get users in, but it sure can’t keep them.” 18:28 “It’s important to think of service workers as progressive enhancement for the network. Offline is just a special case of a flaky network condition.”

  • Other

    • jQuery, React now declare <script integrity> (integrity metadata; info) on their websites, screen
    • @……… outlines which new WebExtensions APIs are available in Firefox 47, post
