Creating Brackets Extensions

A little while ago Raymond Camden wrote about the recent updates to the Brackets editor. Brackets is an open source project focused on web standards and built with web technologies. It has a narrow focus and therefore may not have a particular feature you’ve come to depend upon. Luckily, Brackets ships with a powerful extension API that lets you add any number of new features. In this article, he's going to discuss this API and demonstrate how you can build your own extensions.

JavaScript Tools of the Trade: JSBin

We’ve all been there. There are times when you simply want to throw some JavaScript code up and see how it works. Sure, you could go through the hassle of: setting up a dedicated directory, create a file with markup,Finding the latest version of your favorite libraries, downloading them and including them in your code, creating your stylesheet and configuring your webserver. That seems like an awful lot of work just do some simple code testing. Thankfully there are tools that make this type of work trivial. In this tutorial, Rey Bango would like to go over one of his favorite tools for interactive JavaScript testing, JSBin.

Writing A Better JavaScript Library For The DOM

At present, jQuery is the de facto library for working with the document object model (DOM). It can be used with popular client-side MV frameworks (such as Backbone), and it has a ton of plugins and a very large community. As developers’ interest in JavaScript increases by the minute, a lot of people are becoming curious about how native APIs really work and about when we can just use them instead of including an extra library.

Testing in Node.js

A test driven development cycle simplifies the thought process of writing code, makes it easier, and quicker in the long run. But just writing tests is not enough by itself, knowing the kinds of tests to write and how to structure code to conform to this pattern is what it's all about. In this article we will take a look at building a small app in Node.js following a TDD pattern.
