Can I use WebExtensions to build a plugin for Zotero?

I found Zotero's plugins were developed by XUL in the documents. The XUL is quite old. Can I use Firefox WebExtensions to develop a plugin?
  • No.

    Note that, for a new plugin, you should build a bootstrapped extension rather than creating a XUL overlay extension, since the former will be much easier to port to a future non-Mozilla architecture. Similarly, when creating UI in a new window, or non-trivial UI in an existing window, use HTML instead of XUL.

    If you have other technical questions, please post to zotero-dev. We try to keep technical discussions there.
