Hi Max,

Just for your information, my friend Pascal has fixed the problem with chmod with node.js on macosx. Please retry it.

I have added too some screenshot witj jQuery completion at https://github.com/angelozerr/tern.java/wiki/Tern-&-jQuery-support
You can see that tern is enable to manage jQuery Event.

Hope you will like it.

Regards Angelo

Hope you will understand what I mean. But Im I am honored by your

Yes, I completely understand.

We are still looking and playing with it but if we continue to find it
good (we do right now ;) we'll look into somehow fork it and do our
own version/release of tern.java and possibly angular.js.

Hope you understand that too.

I understand that, but I think we should working together.

Yes, thats what I would like too and note, even if we fork I hope we don't
have to deviate much. We want to contribute as much as possible on a shared project.

I tell you that
because as I said you, I have a lot of ideas to improve tern.java features.
But we will speak about this topic when and if you wish to integrate
tern.java to JBoss Tools.

Thats kinda now.

Denis and Victor looking at it and seeing what we can do
for our upcoming beta1 and beta2.

Maybe easier to chat on IM ? you can reach us on #jbosstools on irc or
via Skype (send you my details on twitter ;)



Regards Angelo

. I

have a lot and lof of idea to improve it not only for angular but for
Javascript features like refactoring, hover, validation.
I think tern.java should be refactored again and IMHO I think we should
waiting that tern.java is stable if you wish to integrate to JBoss. More
some tests of performance must be done (I believe that Victor works on

lets see what the performance impacts are - jsdt isn't exactly fast

This feature is managed just with a simple JSON :

"on": {
"!type": "fn(events: string, selector?: string, data?: ?,
handler: fn(+jQuery.Event)) -> jQuery.fn",
"!url": "http://api.jquery.com/on/",
"!doc": "Attach an event handler function for one or more
events to the selected elements."

Yeah I like this  - much simpler than other typedef descriptions found in
things like vjet and others.

It declares just that handler is a function which waits a jQuery.Event

that's all!

I'm studying how to manage validation with Tern. here a screenshot with
CodeMirror :

Today I think node.js doesn't please you,

Not really - I just don't want it to fail in a default install...i.e.
should bundle a node.js engine
by default so no external node js is required (can still allow users
override that but make the default
experience be a "it just works")

but tern.java provides an API to

use tern.js with other javascript engine (I had implemented with Rhino,
it's too slowly and outofmemory problem, but what about java8 nashorn?

It is worth trying but since nashorn only runs on Java 8 it is not
something we can/should depend on
while Java 6 is still big, but luckily java 7 is getting better ;)

Having nashorn as an option when you are running with jdk 8 would be
interesting to see if it
works better or worse than rhino/node.js.

Hope it will help you more to see features of AngularJS Eclipse.

Yeah, I like it. Really would like to find a way to integrate it more
smoothly into eclipse/jboss tools.

At first I have commited an improvment about Node.js preferences. Now
can set the node.js path. See attached screenshot.
The combo is filled with default path according the OS. If your node
not installed in the default path, it searchs in your PATH env if you
a node path to retrieve the well path.

I updated the plugin and I can see the node and npm binaries are not


so I get an error like:

Cannot run program



(in directory "/Users/max/Documents/workspace-luna3/dfdf"):

Permission denied

When I chmod +X those files it seem to start working.

I wasn't required to change "executable" attribute on my Fedora 20

x86_64. What kind of problem it could be: the problem of OSX or
executable attribute for "node" and "executable" binaries in

It's my friend Pascal who has created this embed node.js, I will

you but now he is on holiday.
But with my improvement, you can try to install node.js in your
and use "Native Node.js".

If you want to see the command line of node.js + teh JSON
used with tern server, you can see those traces in Eclipse Console.
See https://github.com/angelozerr/tern.java/wiki/Tern-Console

Perhaps it should better to have an install URL per OS?

noo - not necessary. You can mark a bundle to just apply to a

OS via Eclipse-PlatformFilter




as an example.

I would suggest making the feature default require these plugins so
install by default would work.

Many thank's for your information. I will speak to Pascal about this


Today Eclipse freezes, but I must do that in background.

Is there an issue for this somewhere ?

There is 2 issues about tern performance :

* "Parse JS file of tern doc with monitor" =>
* "Improve performance with JS Editor and tern completion" =>

Can we avoid it have to parse

constantly ?

can one just tell it to parse one file as oppose to all files all


When you open completion, it parses one time the whole files and
parses the current file.
I must improve the completion performance by using the "part"
tern (not need to parse each time the whole file).
Today I use Tern for completion, find type in HTML editor. But
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.
