node.js, JSDB; Which one compiles under Irix?

Unread postby rwengerter » Tue May 17, 2011 2:59 pm

Hello!

With the help of Google (and other companies) Javascript is on the rise. I like the idea of Javascript as a general purpose scripting language. Which of the newer Javascript versions (node.js, JSDB) may be compiled under Irix. I guess it maybe feasible to compile JSDB (http://www.jsdb.org), which compiles under Solaris, under Irix. I guess it is more difficult (or impossible) with node.js.
Has anyone tried to compile one of these?

I guess nobody here is interested in Javasript. I would try to compile it by myself but
I currently only have the MipsPro C-Compiler. JSDB needs a C-Compiler and a C++ Compiler
to compile.
Anyway, I will try to compile it with gcc and g++ within the next few days and report the results.
It would be nice to have one more programming language on Irix that is multi-platform without
source code change.

node.js requires the V8 javascript engine, and porting V8 to Irix would be a herculean task. Actually, it may be more accurate to say that porting V8 to MIPS is the herculean task. While V8 may run on Solaris, I've never seen it running on SPARC.

JSDB is more likely to work, depending on what version of spidermonkey it depends on.

(our very own bplaa-yai did some work to make this work on IRIX: https://github.com/paul99/v8m-rb/pull/1 )
