Hi Mozdev fellows,
I'm considering to develop a new Mozdev project based on Ant, the Apache
Java building system, i.e. a kind of Unix Make tool. One of the main
purposes would be to offer a friendly XPI packaging tool to XUL
developers. This project would be named, well: Xant.
However, instead of using build files coded in XML as Ant and Phing for
PHP do, it will rather use RDF-XML, the XUL "native" language (probably
adding an XSLT converter to read original Ant/Phing build files). For
those who fear RDF, I plan to include the Mozquery engine I already
developped to ease RDF build file generation.
My questions to all project owners are:
- Do you think such a project would be helpful?
- Would you use it?
- Would you contribute?
- What suggestions do you have?
