I’m also finding that though it’s quite powerful (“powerful” languages are usually flexible, and therefore complex, “helpful” and prone to unpredictable behaviour), you have to write a lot of code to do something very simple.
For example, one thing I want to do is create a new row in a table. I can do this by calling the “insertRow” method of a table element. But I then have to call the insertCell method of the row element to create all the cells. And I then need to append some HTML or text into each cell (even if it’s just a ) to make the cells appear to look right. What a faff!
I suppose I want all things though. A simple language with predictable behaviour, but one in which I don’t have to write much code to do what I want.
Yes…now if someone can just create that my life will be complete!
