Subject Re: [FalconJS] Using Google Closure Tools
Date Tue, 04 Dec 2012 17:47:35 GMT
@Alex: no, not yet checked in, I don't like to check in code that
doesn't 'compile' ;-) A couple of days more...

@Omar: no, I didn't. The original FalconJS POC and demonstration code
already have a great deal of Closure annotation in it, so I figured
the compiler was geared towards that already. Also, I'm not only
setting up the Closure Compiler, but also the Linter and the Builder.
The last one is particularly interesting, as it "compliles" the ENTIRE
application (framework AND application code) into one file, resolving
dependencies, optimising the heck out of what is needed etc. That, and
the fact that with the Closure annotations you can build code that
pretty much allows for most features in AS, as long as you compile it
with GCC.
