What's GLUEscript?

GLUEscript (Glueing Libraries Using EcmaScript) is the successor of wxJavaScript. The new name covers the goal of this project: create a JavaScript engine which can be used as a general purpose language (like Perl for instance).

GLUEscript is developed by Franky Braem

GLUEscript uses SpiderMonkey, the JavaScript engine used in FireFox.

SpiderMonkey

Portable Code

GLUEscript is written in portable C++ code. GLUEscript uses PoCo, a library for writing portable C++ code. And wxWidgets is used as GUI toolset. The GUI glue is optional.

Powered by POCO
Built with wxWidgets

GLUEscript uses Premake for generating makefiles for gcc, project files for Visual C++, CodeLite, Code::Blocks, ... Premake can be used on Windows, Linux and MacOS.

First release of GLUEscript is almost ready ...

At the moment I'm testing all the sample scripts with GLUEscript 0.0.1. A lot has changed since wxJavaScript, so before I release the first version of GLUEscript I have to be sure that all the samples do work.

If you are impatient, you can get the source from Subversion and try to build GLUEscript yourself. When you find defects, you can enter them in the tracker. It can be a great help for me to get this version as good as possible.
