THIS FORK OF ENV.JS IS MOTHBALLED

The Johnson fork of env.js is pretty much mothballed (which is already pretty much true of Johnson, given the rise of v8 and the difficulty moving Johnson to 1.9.*). The current best practices seem to be based on a headless webkit.

env.js

Description

A browser environment for javascript interpreters.

This is a fork of the env.js project (github.com/thatcher/env-js/). See that link for env.js details. This fork is based on the Johnson Ruby gem (github.com/jbarnette/johnson).

Installation

For now, you can install the envjs gem by installing Johnson:

gem install johnson --prerelease

and then installing the envjs gem with

gem install envjs

Using envjs interactively

The envjs gem provides the envjsrb command, which functions as an extended version of the Johnson javascript shell. For example:

 mbp:env-js smparkes$ envjsrb
 js> this
 => [object Window 0]
 js> window.location
 => about:blank
 js> document.innerHTML
 => "<html><head><title></title></head><body></body></html>"
js>

Embedding envjs

It's also possible to embed the envjs interpreter similar to the way it's done in Johnson, e.g.,

require 'rubygems' # if necessary
require 'johnson/tracemonkey'
require 'envjs/runtime'

envjs = Johnson::Runtime.new
envjs.extend Envjs::Runtime
window = envjs.evaluate("window")
puts window.location.to_s # == "about:blank"
puts window.document.innerHTML # == "<html><head><title></title></head><body></body></html>"
envjs.wait

You need the Runtime#wait at the end to give env.js's event loop a chance to execute queued events and timers. You may need to do this at other times as well, depending on the asynchronous nature of your application.
