Firefox OS in Action
The definitive guide
About the Book
Firefox OS in Action is an amazing guide when you start to develop Firefox OS applications, and a great reference guide when you are already an experienced developer. You'll learn about all the important aspects required to build quality mobile applications, from sensor usage to offline availablity, all targeted at Firefox OS developers. The book is divided into two parts: first three chapters where we go from creating an application, to testing and debugging it, and publishing it in the marketplace. The other chapters focus on one specific subject (f.e. sensor usage) and can be read in any order.
