Turn minified JS into readable JS

Another cool site.

Sometimes when you are trying to figure out what’s going on in some minified javascript, it’s quite difficult to read.  Just copy and paste it into jsbeautifier and press Ctrl+Enter.

Here is the jquery source before (1 giant line):

and after (notice the scrollbar difference on the right):

Typescript

I came across Typescript today from Microsoft.  It’s a superset of Javascript, that allows you to write a bunch of Javascript-like code and have it compile into Javascript.  The main benefit here that I see is intellinsense and getting type checks at compile time.

Wouldn’t you love to write Javascript like this?

Nice intellisense!
