ErlyJS: JavaScript on Erlang

Category: JavaScript

Roberto Saccon has written ErlyJS, a compiler that takes JavaScript and makes it run on the Erlang VM.

It is very early days, and supports:

  • Support of a tiny little Subset of Javascript
  • Compilation to Erlang beam files
  • Global Javascript variables are stored at runtime in the Erlang process dictionary (therefore: don’t use global variables !)
  • Local Javascript variables are replaced during compilation with Erlang variables

This isn’t the first bit of Erlang fun that we have seen. We posted on Er.js, the library that aims to give you Erland like IPC for JavaScript.
