JSCoverage: Code Coverage Tool for JavaScript

JSCoverage is a tool that measures code coverage for JavaScript programs.

Code coverage statistics show which lines of a program have been executed (and which have been missed). This information is useful for constructing comprehensive test suites (for which it is often called test coverage).

JSCoverage works by instrumenting the JavaScript code used in web pages. Code coverage statistics are collected while the instrumented JavaScript code is executed in a web browser.

JSCoverage works with any modern standards-compliant web browser - including Internet Explorer (IE 6 and IE 7), Firefox (FF 2 and FF 3), Opera, and Safari - on Windows and Linux.

JSCoverage is free software, distributed under the GNU General Public License.

OpenProj has been downloaded over 175,000 times in the first weeks since it was released and has quickly become one of the most popular open source applications. If you are managing a group project then you should go for Project-ON-Demand. If you want a free replacement to commercial desktop software, then OpenProj is perfect. It's available on Linux, Unix, Mac or Windows, and it's free.

Pickle, Salad and Raita Kabuli Pulao, Qeema and Raita Kabuli Pulao
Sekh Boti and Kabab, Aghani Naan and others Kehwa (Green Tea) with Lemon and suger-coated Almonds Kehwa (Green Tea) with suger-coated Almonds

About:

  • Afghan Cuisine
  • Compact area surrounded by Al Asif Square buildings (flats)
  • Lack of planning and cleanliness
  • Great place for friends to hang out but not suitable for families to dine-in. Take-away is the right option then because food is really worth trying !
  • Meat = Lamb Only

Menu:

  • Sekh Boti and Sekh Kabab - Very Tasty - Hot and Crispy Grilled Meat and Fat cubes - No spices except salt (well that's my guess)
  • Kabuli Pulao - Very Tasty - Best Kabuli Pulao I've tasted so far !
  • Qeema - Not bad - Mince Lamb Meat, Chana Dal (Bengal Gram Split) and Potato
  • Afghani Naan (Bread) - Equivalent to two regular Tandoori Naan (bread)
  • Pickle - Turnip, Carrot and Cauliflower - Very Tasty and helps in digestion
  • Raita - Not good - Yogurt seems to be out of date
  • Kehwa (Green Tea) with Lemon and suger-coated Almonds - Unique sweet dish, good in taste
  • Good taste and considerable cheap

Wash Room, General/Medical Store & Pan Shop Open Air Play Area for Children Covered Dinning Hall

About:

  • Good setup with adequate seating arrangements (Takhts and Gao Takiyas)
  • Clean environment with fair amount of greenery and lights
  • Efficient serving though it was a weekday plus we reach there a bit early. So, can't say for sure about their service efficiency during rush hours
  • Seating Arrangements: Gents Only (Open Air and Covered Dinning Hall), Families only (Open Air, Semi-Open Air and Covered Dinning Hall)
  • Play Area for children. Quite safe due to its central location, so you can keep an eye on your children while they are playing around

Menu:

  • Hot n Sour Soup - Good
  • Sajjad Special Chicken - Worst - Whole steamed chicken with very very few spices (may be only salt) topped with lot of tomato ketchup, boiled egg, french fries and Papars
  • Chicken Lal Kabab - Good - Specially for those who like BBQ but can not intake Hot n Spicy stuff
  • Beef Behari Kabab - Very Good - Spicy
  • Chicken Boneless White Handi - Very Good - Recipe for all!
  • Paratha (though it was Tandoori Paratha) - Very Good
  • Tandoori Naan - Good
