Can you please report it as an enhancement request against EPP? That's an interesting debate IMO, so it's something that requires some structured tracking.
Eclipse IDE often aims at being a single IDE that does everything (a polyglot IDE let's say), whereas JetBrains require you to have 2 different IDEs for 2 different languages. Not sure which one is better. Let's continue this on a bug.
OK, never mind. Let's create and open a JS project. Huh,
no code completion or navigation support.
Navigation is known to be missing ATM (because JSDT was in a too bad state to provide it together with support for ES6 with the amount of resources it receives), completion should work. if not already done, please open a bug for that.

If not already done, please open bugs for those.

Hm, oh, what to choose here??? Sorry, that's the point where I give
up. I don't think I have time now to try 6 different solution for
TypeScript to make a decision which one to use...
IIRC, the JSDT projects aims at providing some support for TypeScript out-of-the-box ASAP (which unfortunately doesn't necessary mean soon). Then users won't have to struggle with choosing another plugin.
Don't get me wrong! I love eclipse and I really wish I could
use eclipse for my daily work, but installing a production environment
and setting things up for multiple languages is soo painful. I
simply don't have the time for doing this and I happily
spend 389 Euro/Year for all JetBrain products.... (I would
spend that or more an an eclipse based solution if it would be
I believe for JS, there are some Eclipse-based solutions that are cheaper, did you try them?
