I know some 9ers never attend anywhere but for the forum so link is here.
how do I test out the result on my IE or other browsers? I mean, is it hard to read the compiled code?
@Bass:Yeah but it is not supported by a big powerhouse software company.
Just watched the video. Looks promising. With enough tutorial and community support, I will totally jump on it.
One scenario is that I want to have a strange method that can basically works for ANY. Like perhaps adding new attribute to ANY type? I don't know if this is possible in JS yet, but, I remember a bit that this can be done.
This makes no sense. "X has been done before except while not doing X."
The end of this thread?
It's a signature of Coffeehouse to have misleading thread titles for dramatic effect, annoying as it can be
First I see this as a good thing. a) It's open source, how can that be bad?, b) Already I see some die hard Microsoft fanbois (yes, there are some of those left ) who swore they wouldn't touch JS with a 10 meters pole hailing this as the thing which saved JS. Good for you. Please use this.
I have said before on the IE blog, "Microsoft was brought into HTML5 screaming and kicking", after a long detour into Silverlight. So now I say: Microsoft came into open source screaming and kicking, but came it did. Welcome (not that I am a great OS contributor, or any contributor).
I'm just curious what's Anders, or Microsoft, take on releasing dotnet on the same terms, or when he came to realize that open source was any good. (I'm not saying that all the great guys who contribute to open source were like that for their entire professional life, but still, it seems Microsoft were last, please close the door after you )
EDIT: And for that matter, and i'm sure Andres isn't reading this, but what's your take on Microsoft calming Linux infringes on 287 or so of their patents??
@fanbaby: This is hardly the first open source project MS has done. Parts of .Net's web stack, like ASP.NET MVC, have been open source for a while now.
It isn't open source, but it is fantastic to be able to debug
Just to add to my post, open source is great isn't it? We live in a great time. OS is the great equalizer. How else can a single guy create something, say jQuery or CoffeeScript, which decimates other work by large teams, whether open or close.
So today Microsoft added yet ANOTHER transpiler. Great. News at 9. You see, in this new world, the fact that it's Microsoft, or Google, or Apple or anyone, means nothing.
