Using JSDT #4 : Adding Third Party Library
I’m documenting my experiences using the Eclipse JSDT.
In this post I will add a 3rd party library. I will describe a success (mooTools) and a failure (jQuery).
Update: There is improved information in this post: Adding Third Party Library Redux.
Adding mooTools Library
First download the uncompressed version (mooTools-1.2.4-core-nc.js) and save it somewhere.
Now in Preferences, add the library. Make sure after adding the library, you also add the mooTools .js file you previously downloaded. It should look like this:
MooTools Content Assist
- From this dialog, you can add MooTools.
You should see this in Explorer:
Supposedly, if your 3rd party library uses jsDoc, the editor functionality is more robust. MooTools does not seem to document with jsDoc.
Dojo? Prototype? YUI?
I’m wondering what experiences others have had adding 3rd party libraries or their own libraries.
