Hi Max, Alexey , Victor,

Today it supports it. See screenshots at

>and it does that without *running* the project javascript ? that is pure tern parsed ?

Yes that"s it. But I think I don't manage the whole case. The angular tern plugin must be improved.

>if yes - that is nice!


>I thought there were things in angularjs context that would not be possible to extract from javascript?

With Tern plugin you can add you own logic when some methods is called. In angular plugin case, it forces the $scope parameter used in the controller 
to an instance of scope by injecting teh well methods $watch, etc

Yes I have seen that with your demo with Livereload. 

The pros with this mean is that you get the well methods.
The cons with this mean is it doesn't work if your JS is not valid. I have not managed that, but I would like to manage Hyperlink 
for expression (ex : Ctrl+Click on "{{todo"  open the todo.js an select $scope.todo). With Tern I can do that (because it's an AST)
I think you cannot do that with LiveReload?

Yes it was a stupid error and Victor created an issue that I have fixed.

I agree with you. I must improve that, but I develop this plugin in my spare time and I was very exciting to see tern integrated in Eclipse IDE.
So I have not worked a lot about the node.js topic.

We provide "embed" node.js that you must select when you install Tern IDE. Perhaps it should better to have an install URL per OS?

As Alexey , Victor suggested me, node.js must be more customizable. I had created this issue at https://github.com/angelozerr/tern.java/issues/4

By using node.js, tern can handle big file. But if you try to parse a big framework like dojo it takes time.
Today Eclipse freezes, but I must do that in background.

>Can we avoid it have to parse

When you open completion, it parses one time the whole files and after it parses the current file.
I must improve the completion performance by using the "part" feature of tern (not need to parse each time the whole file).

Today I use Tern for completion, find type in HTML editor. But Tern is enable to manage search and refactoring.

>Have you found the bundled binaries to work across various OS's ?
No I have just Windows and my friend pascal has Linux.

Have a nice days.

Regards Angelo

It looks like the issue is a common thing for linuxes. And may be not
only for linuxes.
In ubuntu you cannot use "node" (because it's reserved for other util,
not node.js)
in fedora the node.js is not installed to /usr/local/bin/ directory. So,
due to make it work I had to manually create a link to "node" in
/usr/local/bin/ directory.
IMHO, there should be a possibility for a user to point Tern.java to
node.js executable in preferences instead of having some hardly
predefined path, because the path and the name of node.js executable
could be different for different OS distributions.
