Link to a constructor function's prototype

See original GitHub issue

With the following code:

function Person(name) { = name;
Person.prototype.sayName = function() {

var john = new Person('john');

It would be nice if js-hyperclick could link the sayName on the last line back to its definition.

If you’ll switch to writing Flow instead of standard JavaScript Nuclide has jump to definition support

Thanks, I’m using atom-ternjs@0.12.2 now, which has this feature working (v0.13 had a bug about it).
