Firebug Integration for Orion Milestone 5
Find out what’s new in the fifth milestone of the Orion project!
This milestone also comes with an early integration with Firebug. For this milestone, the Orion team have focused on opening the Orion editor on a file in Firebug. Firebug 1.7 alpha version and the Dyne Firebug extension are required to test this functionality. Full installation instructions are available at the Firebug wiki. Once installed, users should see a new ‘Edit’ button, which opens the Orion code editor in a new browser tab.
The team also plan on adding the ability to synchronise breakpoints between Firebug and Orion in the future.
Next, the Orion team plan to work on creating a new Gist from the current editor buffer, functionality for multi-selecting a few files and clicking on an action to generate a CSS sprite, and pasting selected text to pastebin.com.
