Build Status

Benchmarks: write in Scala or JS, run in your browser.

See an online demo here:
The tiny source code is here: gh-pages/demo.

ChangelogsLatest: 0.10.0.

How do I use it?

  1. Include scalajs-benchmark as a dependency in your Scala.JS project.
libraryDependencies += "com.github.japgolly.scalajs-benchmark" %%% "benchmark" % "0.10.0"
  1. You write benchmarks.
import japgolly.scalajs.benchmark._
import japgolly.scalajs.benchmark.gui._

object Example {
  val suite = GuiSuite(
    Suite("Example Benchmarks")(

      // Benchmark #1
      Benchmark("foreach") {
        var s = Set.empty[Int]
        (1 to 100) foreach (s += _)

      // Benchmark #2
      Benchmark("fold") {
        (1 to 100).foldLeft(Set.empty[Int])(_ + _)

(Hey, can you make that 1 to 100 configurable in the GUI? You sure can.)

  1. Add a tiny loader HTML like this.

  2. Create a main app and point scalajs-benchmark at your suite of benchmarks.

import org.scalajs.dom.document
import japgolly.scalajs.benchmark.gui.BenchmarkGUI

object Main {

  def main(args: Array[String]) = {
    val body = document getElementById "body"

If you have a library of different benchmarks, instead of using renderSuite, you use renderMenu to create an app that lets the user navigate the library and run benchmarks.


  1. Compile; run in browser. Done.
