Q allows users to construct variables, customize outputs and automate using JavaScript. This is a widely-used computer programming language (see Wikipedia).

In order to use JavaScript in Q, you need to understand:

  • How to write JavaScript. This is discussed in JavaScript Reference.
  • The different applications of JavaScript in Q. This is discussed below.

Different applications of JavaScript in Q

JavaScript can be used in Q for four different types of problems:

  • Creating new variables (i.e., JavaScript Variables).
  • Automating the setup of a project (i.e., QScripts).
  • Formatting tables and charts (i.e., Table JavaScript and Plot JavaScript).
  • Automating uploading of projects for online reporting (i.e., the API) - see Q API.

There are three sections of help for each of JavaScript Variables, QScripts and Table and Plot JavaScript:

  • Overview pages, which describe the basics of how to write scripts.
  • Examples libraries, which present examples that can be used or modified for specific problems.
  • Reference, which provides detailed documentation of the nuts and bolts of how the scripts need to be written.
