[Seaside] Pretty print Javascript

I am currently working on some elaborate jquery plugin projects with a lot
of custom javascript generation. But i find it very difficult to check if
the generated javascript is correct in firebug, because it appears all on
one line.

Is there a special javascript stream which does all the formatting?

For instance, i am currnetly porting the squak jqgrid plugin to visual works
and I am adding the editing functionality to it.

I end up with strings like this:

&& id!==lastsel){ $("#grid").jqGrid("restoreRow",lastsel);
$("#grid").jqGrid("editRow",id,true); lastsel=id;} },colNames:["Inv

But I would like to end up with something like this (generated by

function onLoad() {
        datatype: "json",
        url: "/jqgrid?_s=djvP-IcmhCV41XX9&_k=F3dJxyNWd7_KXQ8C&1",
        editurl: "/jqgrid?_s=djvP-IcmhCV41XX9&_k=F3dJxyNWd7_KXQ8C&2",
        viewrecords: true,
        height: "100%",
        onSelectRow: function (id) {
            if (id && id !== lastsel) {
                $("#grid").jqGrid("restoreRow", lastsel);
                $("#grid").jqGrid("editRow", id, true);
                lastsel = id;
        colNames: ["Inv No.", "Date", "Client", "Amount", "Tax", "Total",
        colModel: [{
            index: "id",
            name: "id",
            width: 70
            index: "invdate",
            name: "invdate",
            editable: true,
            width: 110
            index: "name",
            name: "name",
            editable: true,
            width: 100
            index: "amount",
            name: "amount",
            align: "right",
            editable: true,
            width: 100
            index: "tax",
            name: "tax",
            align: "right",
            editable: true,
            width: 80
            index: "total",
            name: "total",
            align: "right",
            editable: true,
            width: 80
            index: "note",
            name: "note",
            editable: true,
            sortable: false,
            width: 150
        altRows: true,
        rowNum: 10,
        rowList: [10, 20, 40, 100],
        pager: "pager",
        sortname: "id",
        caption: "JSON Example"

Is that possible?

I could add the extra tab's and linefeeds to the stream functions in the
JSStream but I am hoping that there might already be an implementation that
beautifies javascript (Like the WAPrettyPrintDocument used by the Halo's
(would be great if that could be the default writer as well ;-) )).
