Execute Node.js in your Fortran programs.


You have to install Node.js on your machine. In case you do not have a Fortran compiler, you can install it by running:

# Ubuntu
sudo apt-get install gfortran
sudo apt-get install fort77

# OS X
brew install gcc

๐Ÿ“‹ Example

      program nodejs_module_example
      use nodejs

      implicit none

        ! Let's execute a Node.js file
        call runNodejsPath("example/index.js", .false.);
        ! => "Hello from a Node.js file."

        print *, "An HTTP server is going to be started on port 9000."

        ! And now let's execute some Node.js code right here
        call runNodejs("const http = require('http');&
            &http.createServer((req, res) => {&
            &  res.end('Hello World from a Node.js server started&
            & from Fortran!')&
            &}).listen(9000);", .true.);

      end program nodejs_module_example

To compile the program, use:

gfortran path/to/nodejs.f90 your-file.f90

โ“ Get Help

There are few ways to get help:

  1. Please post questions on Stack Overflow. You can open issues with questions, as long you add a link to your Stack Overflow question.
  2. For bug reports and feature requests, open issues. ๐Ÿ›
  3. For direct and quick help, you can use Codementor. ๐Ÿš€

๐Ÿ“ Documentation

The nodejs.f90 module exports the following subroutines:

runNodejs(code, waitForProcess)

  • code (CHARACTER(len=100000)): The Node.js snippet to execute.
  • waitForProcess (logical): If false, the Node.js code will be executed in the background.

runNodejsFile(file, waitForProcess)

  • file (CHARACTER(len=10000)): The Node.js file path.
  • waitForProcess (logical): If false, the Node.js code will be executed in the background.

๐Ÿ’– Support my projects

I open-source almost everything I can, and I try to reply to everyone needing help using these projects. Obviously, this takes time. You can integrate and use these projects in your applications for free! You can even change the source code and redistribute (even resell it).

However, if you get some profit from this or just want to encourage me to continue creating stuff, there are few ways you can do it:

  • Starring and sharing the projects you like ๐Ÿš€

  • Buy me a bookโ€”I love books! I will remember you after years if you buy me one. ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ“–

  • PayPalโ€”You can make one-time donations via PayPal. I'll probably buy a coffee tea. ๐Ÿต

  • Support me on Patreonโ€”Set up a recurring monthly donation and you will get interesting news about what I'm doing (things that I don't share with everyone).

  • Bitcoinโ€”You can send me bitcoins at this address (or scanning the code below): 1P9BRsmazNQcuyTxEqveUsnf5CERdq35V6
