Developing JavaScript with Chickenfoot
Google TechTalks July 25, 2006 Rob Miller Michael Bolin ABSTRACT Chickenfoot is a Firefox extension that embeds a JavaScript programming environment in the browser's sidebar. Unlike a JavaScript shell that simply supplies access to the DOM of a webpage, Chickenfoot provides users with a high-level API, making web scripting accessible to end-user programmers as well as hackers. In this talk we will present the design and implementation of Chickenfoot; in particular, our novel technique of using keyword patterns to identify page components. We will also demonstrate how to use Chickenfoot for debugging webapps and creating rapid prototypes. In fact, we'll write a Firefox extension in under a minute, or your money back.
