Usage

To use V8 in a project install the package v8-$PlatformToolset-$Platform.$Version from a console with nuget install command or from inside of Visual Studio (see menu option Tools -> NuGet Package Manager -> Manage NuGet Packages for Solution...) where

  • $PlatformToolset is the C++ toolset version used in Visual Studio:

    • v120 - for Visual Studio 2013
    • v140 - for Visual Studio 2015
    • v141 - for Visual Studio 2017
    • v120_xp - for Visual Studio 2013 XP platform toolset
    • v140_xp - for Visual Studio 2015 XP platform toolset
    • v141_xp - for Visual Studio 2017 XP platform toolset
  • $Platform is a target platform type, currently x86 or x64.

  • $Version is the actual V8 version, one of https://chromium.googlesource.com/v8/v8.git/+refs

There are 3 package kinds:

  • v8-$PlatformToolset-$Platform.$Version - contains developer header and library files; depends on v8.redist package

  • v8.redist-$PlatformToolset-$Platform.$Version - prebuilt V8 binaries: dlls, blobs, etc.

  • v8.symbols-$PlatformToolset-$Platform.$Version - debug symbols for V8: pdb files

After successful packages installation add #include <v8.h> in a C++ project and build it. All necessary files (*.lib, *.dll, *.pdb) would be referenced in the project automatically with MsBuild property sheets.
