The JavaScript Runtime Documentation project has started. You can see a sample document here:

Since we already have a rather complete PCL documentation, writing documentation for most core JavaScript objects will be relatively easy and fast. The source code for the above document is here:

Note that you need version 1.4.0 of the PixInsight Documentation Compiler script to compile this document. I'll release the new version with its documentation in a few days.
