- the MXR search tool (comm-central here) to perform rgrep-style queries on the codebase. (A REST API here would be useful, I suspect…)
- exuberant-ctags in vim, following setup 3 as described here. (Building the tag files takes roughly 15 minutes on my laptop.)
- a pair of bash aliases to switch between debug and release .mozconfigs.
- this list, which provides a rough mapping between hg and git commands.
Hopefully this will save someone time 🙂
In the spirit of reciprocity: anyone else have suggestions for links, tools, etc. that could speed up the learning/working process? (Although I’ve placed this under the Thunderbird category, general feedback is more than welcome!)
