With an upgrade this week to its type-safe JS++ programming language, Onux is backing modular design, dead code elimination, and multiple code editors.
With this upgrade, only the function deployed by the user will be in the final compiled mode -- a process called dead code elimination. With this process, all unused code will not be compiled into the final generated output.
The upgrade also adds integration with 16 new code editors, including Sublime Text, Notepad++, Visual Studio Code, GitHub Atom, and GNU Emacs, and it improves Windows integration. "Installation on Windows is now more seamless (no restarts necessary), and you can now use the GUI to compile JS++ files and avoid the command line altogether," Poon said.
