JavaScript Development Tools Rebooted

There has been no news for quite a while from the Eclipse JavaScript Development Tools (JSDT). Basically, the project was in a deep support phase for a couple of years. However, the situation has changed dramatically and now we are glad to say that the JSDT project has been officially rebooted!

This set of articles is dedicated to JSDT 2.0 and its new features and enhancements like Bower, npm, JSON editor, ECMAScript 2015 (ES6) parser, Node.js support and JavaScript Build Tools (Gulp / Grunt). Keep reading to learn how to master JavaScript with JSDT.

You might be interested to know that we are now accepting talk and tutorial submissions for EclipseCon Europe 2016. Submit a proposal.

Finally, I'd like to thank Genuitec for sponsoring the Eclipse Newsletter this month. Happy reading!
