comment JavaScript strict mode compatibility
The only case I can think of is if you're relying on something that is only true in strict mode (such as this === undefined in a regular function call) or relying on something causing an error in strict mode that doesn't cause an error in non-strict mode. Other than those odd things, yes you are correct that strict mode is more restrictive so normal code written in strict mode should work fine in non-strict mode.

comment How to make your JavaScript private?
If you want to require login for every user of your webpage, this will keep people who don't have the login credentials from using your website.

node.js has absolutely nothing to do with this. All node.js code can be kept private, just like server-side code in PHP, Java, C#, C++, etc...

It's even worse than that. They don't have to change your client-side javascript. They can just issue their own Ajax command to your server.

Yes, anyone can see your jQuery in the browser. But, it can use Ajax to call server side functions that operate your mysql database. Your server side code can be private, not your client-side code.

It sounds like you don't understand that node.js runs on the server and the browser javascript runs on the client. You can't mix the two. You can use any server-side language you want (Python, C++, Java, javascript, PHP, etc...). Only javascript runs in the browser. You can make ajax calls from browser to server if you want.

Can you ask a more specific question? I've written javascript for both browser and node.js.

node.js does not run in a browser. It runs on a server or desktop computer somewhere and usually loads scripts locally. Those scripts can be kept locally because they are never served to a browser.

comment Should we use any JS framework which makes HTML as scripting language
I guess it is unclear what you are asking then. It sounds like you don't like the thought of a template language that allows you to put some generation logic in with your HTML. But, I'll bow out of the conversation now.

Yes, that is my point. But, in my example, JS would be building HTML for presentation which you seemed to think was a bad thing. In some cases, a server-style template language might even be used in the client. I'm just trying to explain that life is not always as simple as plain HTML served from a server.

Imagine the case where the user in the browser is browsing data and they wish to drill down to see finer and finer views of some piece of data. It can often be advantageous to not serve a new page everytime they ask to see something else, but to instead issue an ajax call, receive some data, turn that data into the appropriate presentation and then add that to the current view in the browser.

@Ruina - I'm not the person who asked the question - perhaps you meant to address your comment to the OP.

comment Javascript: Anonymous functions
@AdamZuckerman - the term "anonymous function" is used all the time to describe a particular construct in javascript. You can argue whether it is technically anonymous or not (it isn't callable by name outside of it's context so that make it anonymous to me), but that's what it is called in the javascript community. The wikipedia definition I linked above describes it pretty well.

First off, that's a pretty crummy definition of an anonymous function.

comment How to store progress of abstract events?
Usually, this involves storing a list of transactions, where each transaction contains enough information to fully catalog what happened. In your case, it would be something like the action, the item, the source player, the destination player (if more than one player is involved) and then any other meta data needed to describe the transaction. Usually, you would make each operation in the room be a function and each function is then responsible for recording the transaction that represents what it just carried out and obviously updating the player statuses.
