What ecmascript engine?

Item posted by R. S. Doiel <rsdoiel> on Fri Nov 18 20:14:24 2005.

I've started playing around with SpiderMonkey for a Javascript engine. Much better packaged then it used to be. I might go with this instead of ngs-js since it is being actively maintained. What I need to evaluate:

  • How does this compare or complicate things when embedding both a js engine and guile?
  • Do I have the xml processing happen in the embedded script engine or the main shell?

Since the thing I could really use right now is something that translates MusicXML files output from Finale into ABC it makes sense to focus on this feature first. Combining SpiderMonkey with a libxml wrapper would make it very easy to implement. Might also simplify ABC to MusicXML output since I already have a Javascript prototype from Phiz web app framework project.

Need to think about this more.
