Part 1/3

The technology scene changes yearly. With JavaScript, it changes daily – that’s at least what some have come to believe.

This essay is about making refactoring in the software source code level.

This essay does not go into the theory and practice of refactoring, ie. the details of what the ‘smells’ are in various languages etc.

Instead, this is general piece of writing explaining the practical background of building a refactoring tool, especially for language that might be a bit more difficult target: JavaScript.

Why not just use the tools of the trade?

Why not? Why JavaScript is difficult to refactor? Or is it?

We’ll get to the question much more deeply! See you in the next
part.

Hi! A bit updated description. Code enthusiasta, technology optimist, but also a realist. In my blog I wrote 80% of technology related articles, mostly in English and Finnish. I like to envision and ponder about things, how life could be, what we are doing wrong today, and so on. "Invented" a facebook -like system in 2000, as a short product pamphlet. Haven't yet realized the 20+ ideas that might have become big things. Maybe learning this skill one of these days!
