Using TypeScript LanguageService to build an JS/TypeScript IDE in Java

Yesterday I blogged about my endeavors into loading and using the TypeScript Language Service (V8 and Nashorn) and calling it from Java to get things like an outline, auto-completions, … .

Today I connected these headless pieces to my JavaFX-Editor-Framework. The result can be seen in the video below.

To get the TypeScript LanguageService feeling responsible not only for TypeScript files but also for JavaScript I used the 1.8 beta.

As you notice JS-Support is not yet really at a stage where it can replace eg Tern but I guess things are going to improve in future.
