This is currently an experimental API, so we might change it in future releases. In particular, we might make this the default style for certain pages loaded from "data".
With the Add-on SDK you can present information to the user, such as a guide to using your add-on, in a browser tab. You can supply the content in an HTML file in your add-on's "data" directory.
For pages like this, navigational elements such as the
Search Bar, or
are not usually relevant and distract from the content
you are presenting. The
addon-page module provides a simple
way to have a page which excludes these elements.
To use the module import it using
require(). After this,
the page loaded from "data/index.html" will not contain
var addontab = require("addon-page"); var data = require("self").data; require("tabs").open(data.url("index.html"));
This only affects the page at "data/index.html": all other pages are displayed normally.
