As more and more users ask us to extend the number of features and supported frameworks, we are looking to accelerate the process by merging the libraries available for Saltarelle into Bridge.NET. As a result, Bridge.NET 2.0 will bring support for TypeScript, NodeJS, jQuery.UI and KnockoutJS.
As well, Bridge.NET version 2.0 has already integrated the Microsoft Roslyn parser platform and includes support for cool new C# 6.0 language features.
Source Map support for easy debugging right within Visual Studio is also ready to go and will be included in Bridge 2.0. Integration of the Saltarelle unit testing library will boost our code coverage with an amazing total of 5000 unique unit tests.
The Saltarelle website has been fully updated in order to become an integral part of the Bridge.NET online presence.
We firmly believe this is a huge win-win for users of both projects and the .NET community. Bridge.NET 2.0 promises more features, more plugins and professional support, while the community itself becomes larger and vibrant. The Bridge.NET team becomes stronger with the developer and architect of the Saltarelle compiler, Erik Källén, on board, who stated:
The guys at Bridge.NET and I share a similar view of how a compiler such as this should work, so I expect the project to continue moving in the same direction as currently, just much faster.
We are thrilled to welcome Saltarelle and Erik to Bridge, and we’ll have more to share about the integration soon. In the meantime, read more about the acquisition in our Press Release.
