Provide a way to distingush between JS code.

Flynn Joffray 7 years ago updated by Paul Sinclair 7 years ago 2

I work on a lot of front and backend javascript code, it would be nice to be able to distinguish if i'm writing for node.js or something on the client side. I understand that you guys are just looking at extensions, so yeah...

Hi Flynn,

Thanks for the feedback, how can you tell if you are writing Javascript for client side or server side? 

Is it based on: 

The name of the file? 

The folder the file is in?

The class/method name your are currently writing in a file?

or a Combination of the above?

Cheers,

- Paul

I think any sort of contextual reference would make this work - if you look for a package.json in the folder context (lower folders or ./ usually), you could not only know what framework was being used, but what rendering engines, packages, and other metadata associated with the node project (name, description, git address, etc). Just a thought!

Also, if you guys do have an open git for this project, I could take a stab at it and make a pull request =)
