Language Compiling Tools
TypeScript, one of Microsoft’s open-sourced programming languages, is a powerful compiler that can truly help you translate your source code into your target’s executable code. TypeScript needs to be in every app development toolbox! Other highly-regarded language compilers are CoffeeScript and Babel. I am a big fan of the latter tool since it is a wiz at translating the very precise ES2015 language into a code that is compatible across multiple browsers. Working, whenever possible, with code that is cross-browser compatible makes app development work much easier and therefore enjoyable.
ESDoc is my go-to documentation generator because it quickly generates quality documentation, measures its coverage, integrates a manual into the documentation along with test codes, and parses ECMAScript proposals. I’ve worked with plenty of others in app development who swear by Transcription and JSDoc.
