Javascript Extensions

Development using the Javascript API is very straightforward. You can develop extensions locally on your own computer and test them in Content Studio without affecting other users in any way. Once you are satisfied with an extension, deployment is simply a matter of copying it to the correct location on the server. Content Studio also has a Javascript console: any code you enter in this console is executed immediately. You can use the console both as a quick means of trying out code and as a means of examining the system state for debugging purposes.

The Content Studio Javascript environment consists of:

  • The Javascript language itself

  • A number of standard general-purpose Javascript libraries for purposes such as string handling, maths, XML manipulation, regular expressions and so on

  • Content Studio-specific objects that provide access to the Content Studio object model
