Jolicloud at Firefox OS Paris Hackathon

June 11th, 2013

Here at Jolicloud, we love Firefox that’s why we attended the Firefox OS Paris Hackathon.
It was the opportunity to say hello to the Mozilla team in their new space (the place is really awesome) and to start porting Jolidrive to Firefox OS!

And because a good news never comes alone, you can already find Jolidrive in the Firefox Marketplace!

Attendees being impressed by Jolidrive ;)

Under the hood

Firefox OS is a mobile platform based on standard Web technologies (HTML5, JavaScript and CSS3). Jolidrive is already a great Web application for desktop and mobile browsers. We use a responsive design to automatically adapt the layout of the application to the size of the screen.
However, we discovered some space for optimizations on Firefox for mobile.

What we did during this hackathon:

  • Fix display bugs.
  • Actions on items were inactive, you can now tap to like and share the content.
  • With WebActivities, one of the powerful capabilities of Firefox OS, the user can now choose from all installed applications the one to share his content.

Note a lot of those fixes benefit to Firefox for Android too.

Happy jolidriving!

This looks awesome!

I can’t seem to be able to log in through my google account, though (I get redirected to a blank page in the browser after having given my authorisation, and I never get redirected back to the application).

Anything you can do to help me solve this, or report it somewhere?

I’m running Firefox OS on a GeeksPhone


Thank you for your feedback and the praise! We’ll look into it.
