Subject [FlexJS] DefineProperty Code Style
Date Fri, 13 Mar 2015 04:15:23 GMT
I’ve been plugging away trying to convert the FlexJS framework to use

I’m looking to get other’s thoughts on how to indent, comment and
otherwise format or style the actual code.  Here’s what I mean:

The old code looked like this:

 * @expose
 * @return {number} The offset to write to or read from.
org_apache_flex_utils_BinaryData.prototype.get_position = function() {
  return this.position_;

 * @expose
 * @param {number} value The offset to write to or read from.
org_apache_flex_utils_BinaryData.prototype.set_position = function(value) {
  this.position_ = value;

I think the equivalent with Object.defineProperties is this:

Object.defineProperties(org_apache_flex_utils_BinaryData.prototype, {
    'position': {
        get: function() {
            return this.position_;
        set: function(value) {
            this.position_ = value;

As you can see, it looks like we are building out object structures with
functions as values.  One of the things I don’t like is it causes the code
to be indented pretty far in.  And when you start placing in comments,
they are also indented and it really starts to look cluttered.

I’m also wondering whether comments even matter for the Google Closure
Compiler.  No code will directly access the get or set properties of these

Finally, I’ve been reading that @expose is deprecated in GCC.  I’m
wondering how we are supposed to prevent property renaming, if at all.
