New functionality

  • Added command line compiler smsc.
  • Added support for external variables and external class variables.
  • Scriptable HTML templates and CSS scripts.
  • CSS is compressed during compilation.
  • New ways to include an external resource:
    • {$R ‘resource.js’} or {$R ‘file:resource.js’} will copy the resource to the ‘res’ folder during compilation and link it into the program ("< script >" statement will be generated in the HTML code or ‘require’ will be generated for NodeJS code).
    • {$R ‘http://server/path/script.js’} or {$R ‘https://server/path/script.js’} will just link the code to the program without copying anything.
    • You can specify MIME type for the resource by prefixing it to the resource name: {$R ‘text/javascript:http://server/path/file.php’}. If the MIME type is not provided, it will be generated automatically from the extension part of the resource name.
  • Compiled program is stored in a ‘www’ subfolder (previously it was stored in a ‘bin’ subfolder).
