Description ryannaddy 2015-04-09 21:02:16 UTC
https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/JavaScript/Reference/Statements/function*

When using function* the editor validates it as invalid syntax, and autoformat tries to reformat the code. According the to docs, this is valid syntax:

function* foo(){
  var index = 0;
  while (index <= 2) // when index reaches 3, 
                     // yield's done will be true 
                     // and its value will be undefined;
    yield index++;
}
