Rednode is a pure ruby implementation of the native C++ parts of Node.js. Rednode uses - an embedded V8 engine that runs in the same process as Ruby.

Why Rednode?

  • You can mix Ruby code and Javascript code in your node app.

  • You can launch your (possibly pure js) node app from Ruby, allowing you to use e.g. Cucumber to test it (synchronously, which is easier).

  • Mount a node.js app under rack alongside other ruby rack apps.

Note on Patches/Pull Requests

  • Fork the project.

  • Make your feature addition or bug fix.

  • Add tests for it. This is important so I don't break it in a future version unintentionally.

  • Commit, do not mess with rakefile, version, or history. (if you want to have your own version, that is fine but bump version in a commit by itself I can ignore when I pull)

  • Send me a pull request. Bonus points for topic branches.
