JavaScript, please!

C# is nice, but JavaScript rules the front-end :)

    No JavaScript/JSON/TypeScript semantic merge support is kinda a deal breaker...especially when work has been "started" for 5 years now...

    Looking for updates, ESPECIALLY for a Typescript parser. Considering how there is specific and definitive type-definitions for TypeScript it seems like it would be almost easier to implement than for JavaScript.

    Is the delay because doesn't have implementations for either of them yet?

    Is this alive? started September 2013, last update on Feb 16... seems to be "moving" very slowly. Any updates? Would love to support with buying couple dozen licenses for this alone.

    Hi all!

    * You can download the javascript parser and some examples here:
    * Please, unzip and copy the folder at: C:\Users\<youruser>\AppData\Local\PlasticSCM4\semanticmerge
    * The parser for javascript language should be specified through the -ep option when the @semanticmerge is launched
    e.g: -s=src.js -b=base.js -d=dst.js -r=result.js -ep="\"C:\<nodepath>\node.exe\" \"C:\<parserpath>\run.js\""
    * Also, you can check the scripts which are used to launch the js examples (sample-x*.bat)

    In addition, you need a license with external parsers support (javascript). Please, write us to support and we will generate you a license for testing purposes.

    Let me know if it helps!

    is there any update on the JavaScript parser? There was a comment saying that a version had been written about a year ago - is that available in the latest version on Plastic?

    Do TypeScript (first) and you will get JavaScript at the same time. Everyone should stop using JavaScript anyway and go with TypeScript. Since it is a superset of JavaScript there is no problem for those that want to write plain JS, but the option to type stuff is there for those who want to use it.

    So do you guys have any plan of when you would be releasing the JS version? And do you have a GUI for OSX? If I can have both, itd be my dream come true!!!! I always thought about language-based merging. And I finally found you guys!!!

    We have a Javascript parser up and running, but we never made it public. We shared it once with this list. If anyone is interested... drop me a tweet @semanticmerge

    Ah... JavaScript is not Java. Java is now available (November 1). Did, actually mean that work has begun on JavaScript?

    I'm working in Node and Backbone, so it's JavaScript everywhere, would love to see Javascript support (on OS X) ;-)
