Conformance

To know how much of the ECMAScript specification does Boa cover, you can check out results running the ECMASCript Test262 test suite here.

Contributing

Please, check the CONTRIBUTING.md file to know how to contribute in the project. You will need Rust installed and an editor. We have some configurations ready for VSCode.

Debugging

Check debugging.md for more info on debugging.

Web Assembly

This interpreter can be exposed to JavaScript! You can build the example locally with:

npm run build

In the console you can use window.evaluate to pass JavaScript in. To develop on the web assembly side you can run:

npm run serve

then go to http://localhost:8080.

Usage

  • Clone this repo.
  • Run with cargo run -- test.js where test.js is an existing JS file with any JS valid code.
  • If any JS doesn't work then it's a bug. Please raise an issue!
