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).

Read the history behind GLUEscript.

GLUEscript is developed by Franky Braem


GLUEscript uses SpiderMonkey, the JavaScript engine used in FireFox.


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.

POCO SpiderMonkey framework

The design of the POCO SpiderMonkey framework is ready. Now I'm converting all the glues to this framework. This is alot of work, but this will be the best way to test the SpiderMonkey framework. In the meantime I change the code to follow the POCO C++ Coding Style Guide. When I feel it is ready, the framework will be contributed to POCO. You can follow everything in the Subversion repository.
