8 Underrated Javascript Tools You May Not Know About

I thought I would share a few tools that I have found helpful for working with JS, that I wish someone would have shared with me earlier.

  1. Google's Closure Compiler - http://closure-compiler.appspot.com/home
    • This is a tool to compress and optimize your Javascript code. Accessible via an easy to use user interface, as well as through an API.
  2. Visual Event - http://www.sprymedia.co.uk/article/Visual+Event+2
    • A bookmarklet tool for visually exploring where events have been attached to DOM elements and how they are handled. Very useful, especially since event handling can be such a confusing part of Javascript.
