Build Status

Grabs Firefox package URLs

Installation

npm install firefox-get

Method

get(version, [options], [callback])

version can be a number (20) or a string ('18.0b2'), or a channel version such as 'release', 'beta', 'aurora' and 'nightly'. Returns a promise, or can pass in a callback, which has an err and value argument signature.

The module exports two methods: b2g and firefox with the same function signature, one for the Firefox browser, and the other for Firefox OS.

There are some OS/version/language combinations that don't exist. Be sure to check the Firefox FTP to see if it exists when debugging any issues.

options

  • os: Operating system. Available are the following:
    • 'linux-x86_64' (default);
    • 'linux-i686'
    • 'mac'
    • 'win32'
    • 'win64-x86_64' (Only works with aurora/nightly channels)
  • language: Any of the supported language codes. Here's a list of languages. 'en-US' is default.

CLI

Also provided is a CLI tool -- same options (os, language, version) as above. Pushes URL to stdout.

# Specify version
$ firefox-get -v nightly
$ firefox-get --version 24

# Language and OS
$ firefox-get -v nightly -l en-US -o linux-x86_64
$ firefox-get --version nightly --language en-US --os linux-x86_64

# Also a B2G flag for the B2G URL instead of Firefox's
$ firefox-get -b -v aurora
$ firefox-get --b2g -v aurora

Examples

var get = require('firefox-get');
var b2gGet = get.b2g;

get('16.0.2').then(function (url) {
  console.log(url); // http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/releases/16.0.2/linux-x86_64/en-US/firefox-16.0.2.tar.bz2
});

get('nightly').then(function (url) {
  console.log(url); // http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/nightly/latest-trunk/firefox-24.0a1.en-US.linux-x86_64.tar.bz2
});

// Get b2g package
b2gGet('release').then(function (url) {
  // URL returned
});

// Using options
get('release', { os: 'linux-i686', language: 'es-ES' }).then(function (url) {
  console.log(url); // http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/releases/linux-i686/es-ES/firefox-21.0.tar.bz2
});

// Using callbacks
get('notaversion', function (err) {
  // err on response

  // URL returned
});
