Examples

helper.LiveView.init()

Compiles everything in the folder 'src' into the file 'build/LittleHelper.js' ` helper.Folder.getFiles("./src", function(error, files){ if(error)throw error;

    helper.Compiler.compile(files, "./build/LittleHelper.js", function(){
        console.log("New LittleHelper Build @ "+(new Date()));
    });    
});

`

Launch the Less compiler helper.LessCompiler.compile("Z:/work/playground/symfony/src/OW/ScoutBundle/Resources/public/less/main.less", function(css){ helper.Files.create("./main.css", css); console.log("New LESS Build @ "+(new Date())); });

callback : function called after the project has been successfully compiled

EXP : helper.Compiler.compile(["src/Core.js"], "./build/Helper.js, function(){});
