  • Documenting Angular projects
    5 projects | dev.to | 31 Aug 2022
    Keep documentation close to what is being documented: in Angular projects, JSDoc comments can be used to document components, pages and so on write on top of the source code, which is very useful and saves time
  • How we used JSDoc & Webpack to write some custom JavaScript decorators & annotations
    2 projects | dev.to | 19 May 2022
    We encapsulate a lot of our data in JavaScript classes/models, this means we can store sparse data and access it through the models, with the models automatically substituting defaults and creating more complex getters for us. As part of a new feature, we want to be able to share of some this data, but not all of it... and this is where we came up with an interesting solution that involves JSDoc decorators & annotations...

  • Some help regarding hack/grow/weaken ratio

    The second part is TypeScript (or TS, as I referred to it before). It's a push to make JavaScript more OOP-friendly by adding enforceable types, type checking, etc. If you use the VSCode extension listed in the sidebar, you can write your scripts in TS to make it easy to work with strong types and enable IntelliSense (so you can read the JSDoc info for each function, including those in NetScript's NS type) and make it easier and safer to work with your code. It's translated and compiled (aka "transpiled") down to JS before being moved over to the game, so in-game nothing is different. Pretty neat stuff! :)

  • Code for People, Not for Machines - A Glimps into my Newest Book
    3 projects | dev.to | 18 Jan 2022
    Notice how the tooltips generated by the same code differ when a properly formatted comment is added into the mix. This is JavaScript code and the comments are following JSDocs standards. These standards tell you how to format your comments with a structure that a machine can then parse and get useful information out of. You clearly identify things such as variable types and names, return types, descriptions, and more, and then, in our case, the IDE parses it and show an informative tooltip.
  • Documenting Cypress custom commands
    2 projects | dev.to | 6 Dec 2021
    This still looks plain since we do have IntelliSense but we still have no idea what this plugin does. To add a better description we are going to utilize the jsdoc in our Types file to describe what the feature is for.
  • Using JSDoc to write better JavaScript Code
    3 projects | dev.to | 26 Nov 2021
