Yet Another jsshell Update
I’m pretty psyched about jsshell right now. The user count is growing, I’ve had a lot of good reviews — I’ve even noticed that my blog is being hit with search for it.
I’ve also been getting feedback of ideas and suggestions which I’ve implemented and uploaded to the extension website (so you can go download the new version now).
The intellisense now includes jQuery commands, jLinq commands and jsshell commands, each labeled with their own color. Additionally, there is now a slight delay before the intellisense is polled. This time limit is 100 milliseconds (so really if you aren’t typing a fast or even pause for a moment you should see it).
Automatic jQuery Help
I received this interesting suggestion from a user. Automatically open the jQuery website with the correct help information for the word that the caret is currently over. Brilliant!
Now, when you press CTRL+? or CTRL+F1, whatever word you have the caret will be opened on the jQuery website. If you don’t have the whole thing typed out, it will take a guess at what you meant. If it can’t even find a command by that name in jQuery then no window is opened.
Import and Export Settings
I’m not entirely certain what happens from version to version for Chrome extensions, I’ve added an export and import option for settings. Right now it just returns a string that you can import back into jsshell. In the future I’ll be adding an interface to do that for you. For now you might want to save any built in commands before you upgrade versions.
If you have any other feedback, please let me know!
