Question about load(). WasRe: envjs rubygem 0.1.1

Steven,

How closely does the env-js gem follow the docs for the Rhino based
project? For instance: window.location=“some.html” that has a script
tag that loads jquery.js, seems to be loading that external file. The
server logs a GET for it anyhow, and it seems to be live within
evaluates.

But the docs say you must explicity load them.

Cheers,
Ed

Uh … moderately? I didn’t purposefully break anything and I run all
the (old) tests. But our old test coverage wasn’t so hot (a big focus
area right now), so things may have gotten broken inadvertently.

Ah, right. I’ve been a bit fast and loose about that. The default in the
gem is to allow javascript to be loaded, which is not the default on the
main branch. This needs to be reconciled. I’ll probably switch back to
making it not be a default, but I imagine adding support for an .envjsrc
file so that I can set default options on a per-project basis rather
than in every file loaded.

There may be other differences in this area, too. I need env.js to
function pretty much as a browser and if I recall, there are cases where
the master fork didn’t allow certain combinations of local/remote/etc.
Again, all planned to be reconciled, but currently the master fork is
undergoing a lot of rework, so that’s on hold.

Follow-ups might be better to http://groups.google.com/group/envjs?
