How to write plugins in js


#1

Is it possible to write plugins in vanilla js instead of coffee script?


#2

Yes, of course. For example, the minimap package is written in plain JS. Also toggle-quotes, which is quite simple. I see linter-eslint also (depending on the linter package). atom-ternjs and atom-easy-jsdoc also seems to be written in pure JS.

Just in case you’ve been using package-generator – in its settings you can define whether it creates a JavaScript of CoffeeScript example.
