longing for a compiler

Playing with Javascript is fast and fun – until you hit an error and can’t find where it is. This is when you long for the compilers of the good old languages like C and even Java.

Yes, there are tools to help with the debugging – I used this one to pick up small errors, and combining Firebug + browser consoles seems to be the industry norm.

But all this gets complicated when its Javascript deployed as a mobile app using Phonegap. weinre has a lot of functionality and potential, but I do wish for something easier and more immediate – all I want to know are the silly little typos and mistakes before we go down the deployment chain!
