"Not good for more obscure JavaScript creation"

February 23, 2013  |  By RonBernie

 |  Version: Free JavaScript Editor 4.7

Pros

Easy to use, easy to type, run, and debug JavaScript code.

Cons

It can't handle some of the more technical aspects of JavaScript. For example, in the Regular Expressions, the editor can't handle

var colorText = "red,blue,green,yellow";
var colors3 = colorText.split(/[^,]+/);
alert(colors3);

but Dragonfly can.

Similarly, the Free JavaScript Editor can't handle the "this" keyword, as in

var say1 = "Level 1";
var myfunc = function(){
var say2 = "Level 2";
alert(this.say1);}
myfunc();

Summary

The Free JavaScript editor, while easy to use, is a poor learning or development tool for the more advanced features of JavaScript. I would not trust it without checking on another JavaScript development tool, such as Opera's Dragonfly, so why bother with the Free JavaScript editor in the first place?

"Encourages Good JavaScript Programming Practices"

April 22, 2010  |  By adesigninteractive

 |  Version: Free JavaScript Editor 4.7

Pros

Better coding by validation, and example. Free JavaScript Editor, by Yaldex, integrates a local version of JSLint such that the user might learn to improve javascript coding practices. It's a great tool, at no cost.

Cons

NAME GAME: If abbreviated as "FJSE", the bells-n-whistles shareware edition "First JavaScript Editor", is easily confused with "Free JavaScript Editor". Be careful not to confuse the "Free" with the "First", both by Yaldex. Confusing name convention

Summary

One might question: Why a so-called "JavaScript Editor", when it would seem that most any editor would make a fine "javascript" editor? I asked myself the same question-- an intriguing question, and likely why many users have tried it. The answer; what I believe separates FJSE from other text editors is its inclusion of an advanced JS Debugger, and the introduction of JSLint, a free js app available at jslint.com.
Yaldex "Free JavaScript Editor" (as well as the oft confused, "First JavaScript Editor", a shareware by the same developer) integrates a local version of JSLint such that the user might learn to improve javascript coding practices. It's a great tool, at no cost.

"Software is great, who sells it who made it not great"

March 26, 2010  |  By MikeMcGrane

 |  Version: Free JavaScript Editor 4.7

Pros

The software is excellent. Reminiscent of that wonderful software Allaire Homesite, Destroyed by "the BIG Graphic Software Company".

Cons

The problem is the origins of the developers and those selling the product are in foreign countries, Russia , Phillipines. The concern is for lack of accountability for problems with, defective product,worries about my bank account getting hacked.

Summary

Bottom Line is I won't buy this product. I suggest until the credentials of its developer are established as bonafide, you shouldn't be offering it.
