Google Launches Closure Tools: A Javascript Candy Store

The Google Code blog announced the launch of a compiler, library, inspector and templates for sites to use to improve their javascript usage. The tools were "all started as 20% projects and hundreds of Googlers have contributed thousands of patches."

This central open source of all things javascript should prove very handy to web site owners and developers, as many of them are already being used by Google apps and widgets.

"Today, each Closure Tool has grown to be a key part of the JavaScript infrastructure behind web apps at Google. That's why we're particularly excited (and humbled) to open source them to encourage and support web development outside Google."

If the tools become widely adopted it could also help create a uniformity in code use that would help the search engine - but also the wbe community in general.
