JerryScript: JavaScript engine for the Internet of Things

License Travis CI Build Status AppVeyor Build Status Coverity Scan Build Status FOSSA Status SonarQube IRC Channel

JerryScript is a lightweight JavaScript engine for resource-constrained devices such as microcontrollers. It can run on devices with less than 64 KB of RAM and less than 200 KB of flash memory.

Key characteristics of JerryScript:

  • Full ECMAScript 5.1 standard compliance
  • 160K binary size when compiled for ARM Thumb-2
  • Heavily optimized for low memory consumption
  • Written in C99 for maximum portability
  • Snapshot support for precompiling JavaScript source code to byte code
  • Mature C API, easy to embed in applications

Additional information can be found on our project page and Wiki.

Memory usage and Binary footprint are measured at here with real target daily.

The following table shows the latest results on the devices:

STM32F4-Discovery Remote Testrunner
Raspberry Pi 2 Remote Testrunner
Artik053 Remote Testrunner
