Eclipse loves JavaScript: using and contributing to JSDT 2.0

Session details
Session Type: 
Experience level: 

The increasing importance of JavaScript also in back-end development, triggered new investments to revamp the JavaScript Development Tools for Eclipse.

JSDT 2.0 is available since the Neon release, and ships lots of functionalities, to enable full-stack development, trying to make javascript ninjas happy.

In this talk, you will start getting updates about the new features shipped in Neon.1, such as npm scripting, the new ClosureCompiler, and so on.

Then, you'll see a demo on how to use Bower and npm to configure quickly and run a full-stack application, with a Node.js backend and an Angular.js frontend.

Finally, you'll see how easy is contributing to JSDT, using Oomph to "assemble" the JSDT development environment, and fixing a bug in the JSDT code.

At the end of the talk, I will provide references to get in touch with the JSDT team; and I'll respond to questions.
