JavaScript Editor and IDE Features

EditRocket, a Text and Source Code Editor with support for over 20 programming languages, includes a powerful JavaScript editor and IDE that strives to make JavaScript development quick and easy.

The JavaScript editor included in EditRocket includes many tools and features to aid in JavaScript development. See below for information on the JavaScript specific tools offered by EditRocket.

JavaScript Editor

JavaScript Auto Completion

Code more quickly with the JavaScript Auto Complete Tool. The auto complete tool automatically brings up a list of applicable methods when typing a (.) after a variable name. Auto-complete is available for the built-in JavaScript objects, such as Array, String, Math, etc. and the DOM objects, such as document, location, window, etc. For more information, see the following: JavaScript Auto Completion

JavaScript Source Code Builder

With EditRocket, there is no need to memorize JavaScript APIs. The JavaScript Code Builder includes information on the functions contained in the JavaScript library, for example, Math, String, Document, and many more.

The Code Builder works by allowing users to select a function category, such as String, and then it displays function signature and function description information for all functions in the selected category. The user can copy the function name to the editor, and the signature will display as a tooltip. For more information, see the following: JavaScript Code Builder

JavaScript Validator

The JavaScript validator included with EditRocket uses the javascript lint validation tool. The validator checks for syntax errors and questionable coding practices. For more information, see the following: JavaScript Validator

JavaScript Compressor

EditRocket includes a JavaScript compressor that compresses scripts resulting in faster downloads. For more information, see the following: JavaScript Compressor

JavaScript Sidekick

Code more effeiciently with the JavaScript Sidekick. The sidekick gives users the ability to quickly enter many common JavaScript constructs into the text editor with the click of a button, or via customizable keyboard shortcuts. Some examples of code assistant options are for loop syntax, function syntax, and if, if else, and else syntax. The sidekick also includes a tab for the JavaScript Function Navigator. For more information, see the following: JavaScript Sidekick

JavaScript Function Navigator

Jump from function to function easily with the JavaScript Function Navigator. The navigator parses the editor contents for JavaScript functions and displays them in a clickable list. Clicking an option from the list takes the user directly to the point in the editor where the function is defined.
