Javascript domain should have event directive and ref roles

masklinn avatarmasklinn created an issue

While event-oriented programming isn't used that much in Python itself, virtually all browser-side javascript code has to deal with events, and through modern javascript libraries it is pretty common for applications to have custom events for intercommunications.

I think an event type (besides class, function and attribute) would be a great addition to the JS domain.

Markup-wise, it would be similar to a function or a class, but the meaning of :param: would be reverted: they would be the objects provided to event listeners when the event fires.

An event directive might also warrant the creation of some kind of callback sub-directive which would be used to document how event listeners could or should react when called (in case data or commands can be sent back to the source of the event for instance)

Tip: Filter by directory path e.g. /media app.js to search for public/media/app.js.
Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for ProjectModifiedEvent.java.
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
