[Mono-list] IKVM+Rhino=JS for mono?
Thu, 17 Jun 2004 15:06:08 -0400
It occurred to me that it might be possible to run Rhino under IKVM to
get a quick boost into a mature ECMAScript implementation for Mono.
Presumably, with a couple of tweaks to ignore the "cli." prefix that
IKVM inserts for .NET classes, it would do most of what's required for
I have no time or knowledge to pursue this myself, but I'm throwing the
idea out there in case anyone wants to run with it. It might be possible
to get Rhino+IKVM to production quality quicker than the from-scratch
ECMAScript implementation that's being worked on at the moment. Worst
case, we end up with two high-quality ECMAScript implementations to
choose between :)
