How to use skewer-mode?

Instead of running the demo, just perform these minimal steps to ensure that everything is working correctly.

  1. Open a new buffer with the name myskewer.js
  2. Enable JS2-mode (a dependency of skewer)
  3. Enable skewer-mode
  4. M-xrun-skewer (a browser opens, go back to myskewer.js)
  5. Type alert("hello"); and hit C-xC-e at the end of that line
  6. Go back to the browser.

You should see an alert box on the page.
