js.js: A JavaScript JavaScript interpreter

Project README

js.js is a JavaScript interpreter in JavaScript. Instead of trying to create an interpreter from scratch, SpiderMonkey_ is compiled into LLVM_ and then emscripten_ translates the output into JavaScript.


See several running demos here <http://jterrace.github.io/js.js/>_.

The compiled version of js.js is 3MB and only 594KB after gzip compression. Using the Sunspider_ benchmark, the interpreter is about 200 times slower than Spidermonkey's native interpreter with the JIT compiler turned off. More optimizations and benchmarks are coming soon.

Example Use

Here is an example of how to use the API::

var jsObjs = JSJS.Init();
var rval = JSJS.EvaluateScript(jsObjs.cx, jsObjs.glob, "1 + 1");
var d = JSJS.ValueToNumber(jsObjs.cx, rval);
window.alert(d); //2

More examples are available in the examples directory.


The following files are located in the src directory.

=================== ========= File Description =================== ========= js.O0.js Command-line JS shell, no optimizations js.O0.min.js Command-line JS shell, no optimizations, closure compiled js.O1.js Command-line JS shell, O1 optimizations js.O1.min.js Command-line JS shell, O1 optimizations, closure compiled js.O2.js Command-line JS shell, O2 optimizations js.O2.min.js Command-line JS shell, O2 optimizations, closure compiled libjs.O0.js JSAPI shared library, no optimizations libjs.O0.min.js JSAPI shared library, no optimizations, closure compiled with js.js wrapper libjs.O1.js JSAPI shared library, O1 optimizations libjs.O1.min.js JSAPI shared library, O1 optimizations, closure compiled with js.js wrapper libjs.O2.js JSAPI shared library, O2 optimizations libjs.O2.min.js JSAPI shared library, O2 optimizations, closure compiled with js.js wrapper jsjs-wrapper.js js.js wrapper API to make using the JSAPI easier =================== =========

To run the shell, you want to run one of these::

js js.O2.min.js -e "print('hello');"
node js.O2.min.js -e "print('hello');"

To include the API in your website, include the minified libjs like this::

<script type="text/javascript" src="libjs.O2.min.js"></script>

Alternatively, you can use the wrapper script directly with a non-minified version (useful for debugging and modifications)::

<script type="text/javascript" src="libjs.O2.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="jsjs-wrapper.js"></script>
