AnyChart Team Developed Ctags for JavaScript based on Google Closure Compiler

Developing the HTML5 version of AnyChart, our team has not only mastered a variety of tools and utilities, but also created a number of new ones - including Ctags for JavaScript based on Google Closure Compiler (gjstags).

Ctags is a program that generates an index (or tag) file of names found in source and header files of various programming languages. These tags allow definitions to be quickly and easily located by a text editor or other utility. Alternatively, there is also an output mode that generates a cross reference file, listing information about various names found in a set of language files in human-readable form.

Gjstags developed by AnyChart team supports classes, enums, interfaces, and so on. It is based on Google Closure Compiler, works under Mac OS X or Linux and is licensed under Apache License 2.0.

Anyone interested in gjstags can download it here: https://github.com/AnyChart/gjstags and is free to use it in any way.
