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

SpiderMonkey

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.

GLUEscript / GPSEE

The next version of GLUEscript will try to work together with GPSEE. GPSEE (pronounced "gypsy") is a platform for developing and running CommonJS programs, a general-purpose C API for embedding SpiderMonkey + CommonJS and a general-purpose C API for adding interoperability between JSAPI projects. This means that all the work that has to be done to get GLUEscript full compliant with the CommonJS standard, will be done by GPSEE. That way GLUEscript can focus on "glueing the libraries".
