Demo : http://js86emu.chadrempp.com
- Support for all documented 8086 instructions and addressing modes
- Functioning stack
- Basic debugging logging
- 80x25 MDA text mode graphics using code page 437 font set
- Video renderer support for canvas, PNG and binary output
- 80% or better test coverage
There are two ways to run js86emu: a command line client or as a web application.
First build the entire package
$ npm run build
Command Line Client
The command line client is run as an NPM command and is very basic at the moment.
Currently only the PNG renderer is supported with the command line client and
screen renders will be stored in the
./screenOut directory. This happens at
the screen refresh rate (~50hz) and could easily generate thousands of images
so be careful.
$ npm run run:cli
The web application uses a node webserver to serve the web build of the emulator and by default renders to canvas.
$ npm run run:web
Then access the application at http://localhost:8080
Docker is supported.
$ docker build -t "js86emu" . $
Or use a prebuilt image on Dockerhub
$ docker run -p 8080:8080 lapinlabs/js86emu
js86emu has very good test coverage.
$ npm test
To profile the performance of js86emu the built-in node profiler works quite well.
node --prof ./dist/runner.js node --prof-process isolate-0x102801e00-v8.log
