  • ESLint - The a tool for identifying and reporting on patterns found in ECMAScript/JavaScript code. In many ways, it is similar to JSLint and JSHint with a few exceptions: ESLint uses Espree for JavaScript parsing. ESLint uses an AST to evaluate patterns in code. ESLint is completely pluggable, every single rule is a plugin and you can add more at runtime.

Google Closure Linter




  • traceGL transforms your JavaScript, injecting monitoring code that produces a log of everything that happens. This log is streamed from the target (node or browser), via the traceGL node.js process to the UI for visualisation. The UI tries to display the resulting huge amount of information fast, and uses webGL to render everything. - $

  • PhantomJS is a headless WebKit with JavaScript API. It has fast and native support for various web standards: DOM handling, CSS selector, JSON, Canvas, and SVG.



  • Apache Cordova - an open-source mobile development framework. It allows you to use standard web technologies - HTML5, CSS3, and JavaScript for cross-platform development. Applications execute within wrappers targeted to each platform, and rely on standards-compliant API bindings to access each device's capabilities such as sensors, data, network status, etc. Use Apache Cordova if you are: a mobile developer and want to extend an application across more than one platform, without having to re-implement it with each platform's language and tool set; a web developer and want to deploy a web app that's packaged for distribution in various app store portals; a mobile developer interested in mixing native application components with a WebView (special browser window) that can access device-level APIs, or if you want to develop a plugin interface between native and WebView components.
