Subject [jira] [Commented] (THRIFT-4809) Javascript episodic code generation
Date Tue, 05 Mar 2019 18:23:00 GMT


James E. King III commented on THRIFT-4809:

Use standard C++11 code for new development.

We do not want to link against boost libraries (although I'm told we still have one lingering
somewhere) - most of the link dependencies for boost have been removed from 0.13.0.

>                 Key: THRIFT-4809
>                 URL:
>             Project: Thrift
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: Node.js - Compiler
>    Affects Versions: 0.12.0
>            Reporter: Mustafa Şenol Coşar
>            Priority: Major
> We can generate code without `-recurse` flag but the imports are not structured in a
way to support episodic code generation, i.e., generated code imports the required modules
from the current directory.
> We can specify a node module path during compilation to use so we can import the modules
that are generated from an included .thrift file from that module.
> Example:
> `A.thrift` has struct `A`
> `B.thrift` includes `A.thrift` and uses struct `A`
> `A.thrift` is compiled separately and packaged into `packageA`
> When we compile `B.thrift` we specify path/to/packageA
> `B_types.js` has the following import:
>     `var A = require("packageA/A_types");`
