    CodeMirror & Y Modules

    tern-aui2.0.x works with the NodeJS tern-server, and within a browser. It depends on :

    • brower and ecma5 JSON Type Definitions coming from the tern.
    • yui3 tern plugin.

    Short version

    After installing Tern according the setup instructions of your desired editor plugin, go to the place where the Tern package was installed (or the Tern repo was cloned) and run

    $ npm install tern-aui2.0.x

    Or, if you're not sure where Tern was installed, you can try

    $ npm install -g tern-aui2.0.x

    Long version

    See INSTALL.md for instructions tailored to each editor.


    With Node.js

    In order for Tern to load the tern-aui2.0.x plugin once it is installed, you must include aui2.0.x in the plugins section of your Tern configuration file. The configuration file can be either a file named .tern-project in your project's root directory, or .tern-config in your home directory.

    Here is a minimal example .tern-project configuration file:

      "libs": ["ecma5","browser"],
      "plugins": {
        "yui3": {},
        "aui2.0.x": {}

    Note that yui3 tern plugin must be declared before aui2.0.x

    "Project directory" and .tern-project vs .tern-config

    Tern looks for .tern-project first, walking up the directory tree, and uses its location as the "project directory". If no .tern-project is found, your .tern-config is loaded instead, and the working directory of the Tern server process is used as the "project directory".

    With WebBrowser (CodeMirror)

    See demos/aui.html

    How to generate aui2.0.x?


    The tern plugin aui2.0.x.js is generated from the JavaScript sources of AlloyUI 2.0.x. Process of this generation is :

    • AlloyUI sources uses YUIDoc comments. YUIDoc is able to generate a JSON representation of JavaScript sources. In this project, we use the this api.json which is a copy/paste of the online data.json.
    • generate JSON Type Definition from api.json (YUIDoc format) by using the transformer aui2tern.js. Note that you can debug with Chrome this transformer by opening aui2tern.html.
    • generate the tern plugin by using the generated JSON Type Definition by calling :

    node generator/node/make_plugin


    Here the steps :

    • open cmd
    • cd $HOME/tern-aui2.0.x
    • Generate the tern plugin aui2.0.x from api.json, by launching :

    node generator/node/make_plugin

    • You can execute tests with

    node test/all


    The basic structure of the project is given in the following way:

    • aui2.0.x.js the tern plugin.
    • demos/ demos with aui2.0.x tern plugin which use CodeMirror.


    npm i tern-aui2.0.x
