"javascript shrinking compiler"

What do you like best?

we dont want to add the java script with html code ,we can separately compile and find the errors.it shortens the script and makes it even understantable.

What do you dislike?

The appearence of the compiler is not good and also the compiler doesn't validate types on elements in array literals.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It is very easy to use.The compiler is moderately fast at compiling.this web app can be trusted.I would really reccommend this compiler because removes the unwanted codes and rewrites it to a new script.it is very usefulfor the beginners as it also checks the syntax of that code.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

it makes easy for me to minimize the errors of my code also I figured it would be helpful to actually check the JSDoc type annotations, and not just use them for autocompletion. It seems that the best way to do this is using the closure compiler

"description of closure compiler"

What do you like best?

This software is a revolution of compiling javascript ,rather than compiling the javascript form javascript to machine code this software compiles from javascript .The main feature is it parses the javascript code then analyse by the software and removes unused dependencies and code from your javascript code.It can be used with the closure compiler API which is used to define the request parameters which provides programmatic access.This software is provided by google ,it means that the it is well defined and secure enough to use,this software mainly is javascript optimiser, typechecker and minifier.

What do you dislike?

the ECMAscript that is provided for the javascript will be complex to understand as it can be download for any version with language specification compiler.the another one thing is that it doesn't preserver the comments which is not the professional way for the production scripts.the reference is also not clear.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

i recommend this software to those who currently use any javascript interpreter .this software reduce the compilation time and will reduce your work for analysing the code in efficient way.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

i am using this software for optimising my javascript which has some other but not important ,so this software is used to compile the code faster and in efficient way.

Efficiency. The Closure Compiler reduces the size of your JavaScript files and makes them more efficient, helping your application to load faster and reducing your bandwidth needs.

Code checking. The Closure Compiler provides warnings for illegal JavaScript and warnings for potentially dangerous operations, helping you to produce JavaScript that is less buggy and easier to maintain.

You can use the Closure Compiler as:

An open source Java application that you can run from the command line.

A simple web application.

A RESTful API.

To get started with the compiler, see "How do I start" below.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

The Closure Compiler is a tool for making JavaScript download and run faster. Instead of compiling from a source language to machine code, it compiles from JavaScript to better JavaScript. It parses your JavaScript, analyzes it, removes dead code and rewrites and minimizes what's left. It also checks syntax, variable references, and types, and warns about common JavaScript pitfalls

"Closure Compiler review"

What do you like best?

This software is very good for compiling your codes and also decoding process is very fast here. Using JavaScript here was very fast and it also worked very fine on my system. You can type any type of code here and if there is any mistake, it automatically shows you the error and compilation done by this software is also very good looking.

What do you dislike?

When the code is too large, writing code here and then find a particular mistake in a line becomes very difficult. Also layout of this site is too old. As it doesn't requires any special permission, anyone can also use it for bad purpose also so I think they should increase security of the software.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This software is very good for compiling JavaScripts but now a days I have to write very long codes so I'm preferring another software having new modern features. I think they should update their software and this is also a good software but make it excellent.
