Javascript resources

Javascript Notes Notes I have created for learning the basics of Javascript

Web Application resources


  • MVC Links and data on MVC application frameworks and libraries such as Angular or Backbone.


bootstrap is used as a CSS framework. Works in conjunction with some JS/JQuery as well.

Node for J

  • Node - Notes on Node for J as well as Express and templating engines

Webapp stacks and web server technologies


Our current Delevopment Stack



Misc other graphics and data stuff


User Interfaces

Other interesting Javascript Technologies

Cloud servers

Really links to Java and rest API hopefuls

Javascript Documention Projects - listing of hopefuls

  • docco Docco is a quick-and-dirty documentation generator, written in Literate CoffeeScript. It produces an HTML document that displays your comments intermingled with your code. All prose is passed through Markdown, and code is passed through Highlight.js syntax highlighting. Documents are not really API docs but code inspection docs. Code and comments appear side by side. I guess the style is what they are calling Literate Programming. Requires a bit of work to get it installed. Gotta add python and a Pygments.
  • Ronnjs looks like a decent little tool. Creates just Markdown docs. So it really requires a bit of a build process. Markdowns are easily converted to html.
  • jsDox jsdox is a simple jsdoc 3 generator. It pulls documentation tags based on a subset of jsdoc 3 from your javascript files and generates markdown files.

Java API Documentation

Personally, All I think we need a javadoc plugin that deals with Spring notation a little better. Is that too much to ask?

  • RestDoclet This is probably the one we want.
  • SpringDoclet SpringDoclet is a Javadoc doclet that generates documentation on Spring Framwork artifacts in a project. The detection of Spring artifacts is based on the presence of Spring annotations on Java classes and methods. I have used this. It really only produces one additional document and lumps all the rest into a single doc. Kinda good, kinda meh. Here is an example.
  • wsdoc Produces a kinda plain, but spring friendly document. Needs more investigation
  • Swagger A specification and complete framework implementation for describing, producing, consuming, and visualizing RESTful web services. Seems a bit much.
  • Enunicate Open-source documentation generation engine that is attached to the Java build process to generate HTML documentation. Not sure if it does the Rest/Sprint stuff
  • Doxygen - Doxygen is also a general purpose documentation tool that can be used for documenting APIs too. It generates either an on-line documentation browser (in HTML) and/or an off-line reference manual from documented source files.


  • this shows both a good approach to incrementally adding to your code and testing it.
