MoonScript for JavaScript

This is a version of MoonScript that has been compiled to JavaScript using Emscripten.


The Lua source code of MoonScript is concatenated into a single file which is converted to a header using xxd. This is included a C file along with Lua and LPeg which are then compiled into LLVM bitcode. Finally the entire thing is linked and fed into Emscripten to create a JavaScript file.

The JavaScript is compressed with the Closure Compiler. The file itself takes a long time to load, especially on Chrome, so it is loaded in as a web worker.

A simple HTML page creates the worker to provide an web interface for compiling and running MoonScript.
