Importing documentation from MDN

As MDN should not be used for documenting mozilla-central specific code or process, the documentation should be migrated in this repository.

Fortunatelly, there is an easy way to import the doc from MDN to the firefox source docs.

  1. Install

  2. Add a ?raw=1 add the end of the MDN URL

  3. Run pandoc the following way:

$ pandoc -t rst\=1  > doc.rst
  1. Verify the rst syntax using ./mach lint -l rst

  1. If relevant, remove unbreakable spaces (rendered with a “!” on Phabricator)

$ sed -i -e 's/\xc2\xa0/ /g' doc.rst
