amo-changelog - fetch Version History of an addon


amo-changelog [options] extension


amo-changelog fetches the Version History of an addon from the Mozilla Extensions website.
It is meant to offer an easy way to include upstream changelogs in Debian packages of
mozilla extensions - in many cases, this is not contained in the upstream source code
repository, but is available on said website.

The extension argument is its short name, as used by the website. For example, the
homepage for "Adblock Plus" is https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/adblock-
plus/, so the short name would be "adblock-plus".

Here is an example for debian/rules:

# if using debhelper
dh_installchangelogs debian/upstream/changelog.html debian/upstream/changelog

.PHONY: get-orig-changelog
amo-changelog -p rst adblock-plus

Using this approach, one would save the output files
debian/upstream/{changelog.html,changelog} as part of the Debian packaging. When updating
the package with a new upstream release, one would run `debian/rules get-orig-changelog`
