The story Begins

The story Begins Lately, I’ve decided to write my own JavaScript library for educational and experimental purposes. The idea came to me while I was creating a demo to a session that I will deliver in the near future. In the session, I wanted to show how to use different JavaScript storage types and didn’t wanted to change my code every time for every storage type. So I’ve created a library to handle client-side data storages in simple and consistent way. The library is called story.js and its first bits are hosted in GitHub. Right
now the library includes the following storage types: Web Storage IndexedDB Cookies In-memory In the future expect more features. I’ve also convince my managers at Sela Group to help in this initiative and other Sela experts (Noam and Sebastian) agreed to contribute to the library.

I decided to take a few minutes and find out how to solve this once and for all and share it with you. Below you will see my normal routine and how easily we can solve this. The Normal Routine I set a break point on a line: I
start debugging my application and begin inspecting the Binding Statement or whatever and eventually Chrome gives me this message: I hit the No button and eventually it comes up again asking the same question. The Solution Multiple Solutions exists for this but it all boils down to adding an extra parameter called --disable-hang-monitor to the command line. So for example, I usually open an instance of chrome before debugging my SL applications. I went ahead and create a shortcut to chrome and add the parameter after chrome.exe as shown below....(Read whole news on source site)

Updated JavaScript Koans

 Today I updated my JavaScript Koans project, adding a new topic (about 'this') and updating an existing topic (about reflection). The about reflection topic had some weird examples that needed fixing and while I was in the code I added a test about object's 'constructor' property.  The 'about this' topic explores the various ways that JavaScript's 'this' keyword can behave.
