at all to get into ..
the best way to get into it, imo, is to unzip an add-on .xpi file (its a
regular zip file - you can just run unzip on it and unzip its contents .. )
and poke through the code to understand what's going on ..
Depending on what you're trying to achieve, you'll find documentation for
different hooks that the XUL frame-work gives you to the browser .. this
would probably be a good starting point:
https://developer.mozilla.org/En/XUL - the tutorial link from there is a
great introduction .
I think XUL can be a powerful platform for cross-platform app development as
well as what you can do with it to build offline or online apps, is quite
cool, and as I said, if you've worked with (x)html / js / css, it really is
an extension of the same thing -- just giving you a bit more power ..
Unfortunately, you can't really write it in python unless you do something
bizzarre like use pyjamas <http://pyjs.org/> ..
