Hi Chris,

I notice you figured out the use of #alias: 

Use the JS generation facilities only when you need to *generate* code. For example, to embed a server-side callback or, in general, when the code can only be dynamically constructed.
In your case, I would do the following:

(JSStream on: ‘console.log(event)’)

Just because you can write it in Smalltalk does not mean you should :)


ps: your contributions are in my inbox, I will process them asap
