Hebrew Keyboard Layout
export GAIA_KEYBOARD_LAYOUTS=en,he ./build.sh
You can also just put this in your .userconfig file.
Right to Left Display
In the HEAD version there is a bug with backspace on Hebrew input. I've reported here: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1057552
To solve the backspace problem in a generic way, in gecko/modules/libpref/init/all.js change:
I still don't understand this completely, but the logic that decides whether to perform the deletion or not is here: gecko/editor/libeditor/nsTextEditRulesBidi.cpp
It's something about the caret position blah blah. Still dir="auto" provides a better solution since the text also moves nicely in RTL. But I wonder if it needs to be applied to every every html field specifically or not.
The work around for the bug, which also fixes RTL display is adding dir="auto" to input fields. For example in the sms app I edited the message input in index.html (https://github.com/mozilla-b2g/gaia/blob/master/apps/sms/index.html) :
<div id="messages-input" contentEditable="true" name="message" x-inputmode="-moz-sms" class="js-l10n-placeholder" dir="auto">
This bug tracks RTL issues in B2G: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=906270
UPDATE: We have made a difference! This seems to be fixed to the default behavior. https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1034337 Hooray
For printing logs in gecko that will show up on `adb logcat`, one must use the printf_stderr function
avnerus@localhost ~/Flame $ virtualenv venv avnerus@localhost ~/Flame $ source venv/bin/activate (venv)avnerus@localhost ~/Flame $ pip install marionette_client (venv)avnerus@localhost ~/Flame $ adb forward tcp:2828 tcp:2828 (venv)avnerus@localhost ~/Flame $ python fxos-repl.py list
then I could see a list of my applications. I did:
(venv)avnerus@localhost ~/Flame $ python fxos-repl.py connect app://browser.gaiamobile.org/index.html
I tried > alert('hi');
and it displayed it on my phone :D
I also did
and I could see it in "adb logcat" (When console logging is enabled on the phone's developer menu).
- WhatsApp - OpenWappp doesn't work on HEAD, but I did manage to connect to WhatsApp with ConnectA2 and Loqui IM.
- Telegram - Telegram web client is published as an app.
ConnectA2 seems to support SimplePush on WhatsApp. I'm not sure how they do it. Maybe they register WhatsApp for you and forward you the notifications? I think Telegram may be the close to implementing it. I'm tracking this issue:
It seems the client already sends the Firefox OS endpoint to the server, but I don't think the server supports it as of now.
