jsctags no longer reports scope of tags #5

Hi,

I'm the author of Tagbar (http://majutsushi.github.com/tagbar/), a Vim plugin that can use jsctags to show an overview of the current file in a separate window. One useful aspect is that it can show the tags properly nested, and this worked fine with jsctags sometime in April. However, the current version doesn't report the tag scopes via extension fields like namespace anymore, which results in all tags being reported as top-level tags. It would be really useful if this functionality could be restored again.

Hi majutsushi,

My time is scarce at the moment, but your issue isn't forgotten; I'll check back on this when I have a few spare cycles.

I think 011b866 is the commit where namespaces stop working.

@pcwalton we need you :d. I tried to fix it, but I can't.

I think it would be best to have dimvar look at this when he can...

What's the state of this issue? @dimvar could you take a look at it, please?

I'm afraid I won't have much time to work on DrJS in the next few months, as I'm finishing my PhD in the Spring. During this time, I won't be able to fix this issue.

the "quickfix" of reverting to an older version mentioned here https://github.com/majutsushi/tagbar/wiki
does not work with recent versions of node.js (the older doctor.js does not work with it) so currently the only option is to fix this upstream

No offense intended, but it's been a year since the issue is open.
Could you guys @pcwalton and @dimvar provide us with a little update ?

This one must be particularly tricky, and I was wondering if anything has been planned on your side (if you have time to spend on it) or if the community (including me, FWIW) should start relaying you, because people mostly seem to wait for your input so far, excepting @clausreinke through his pull request.

Thanks for the hard work on doctorjs, guys! It's very valuable!

Hi Xavier, my status update is that I've stopped working on drjs for several months now, as I'm busy with other things. I don't know about Mozilla's status, Patrick or Dave would know more about that.

@dimvar Sorry for the late answer and sorry to hear that.

Two years have passed, still no updates on this? (Or any fork that has fixed it?)

There is an alternative project using a different library, but the ctags-format output is still work in progress:

Maybe someone versed in JavaScript can give it a hand.
