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

GLUEscript on Linux

For those who want to run GLUEscript on Linux: I'm currently doing a lot of work to make it build on Linux. The article "Don't waste your time on GLUEscript" made me realize that GLUEscript wasn't ready for Linux. Allthough I always released an archive with the source code targeted to Linux, it was difficult to get GLUEscript run on it. I'm polishing up the code now, and I hope to release a source archive that builds on Linux soon. Stay tuned.

If you can't wait, you can always clone the git repository and give it a try.
