About this DocumentationΒΆ

This document tries to cover all aspects of how to create a provider add-on for TbSync to extends its sync capabilities.


All TbSync provider add-ons are currently designed as bootrapped extensions, for which support is probably going to be dropped from Thunderbird at some time. We are working on migrating the TbSync API into a WebExtension API, so - hopefully - all provider add-ons can be converted into future proof WebExtensions without much effort.

This section gives a short introduction to TbSync and its provider concept.
