The installation takes several tens of minutes due to V8 build.

Examples

Go

import "github.com/sony/v8eval/go/v8eval"

func Add(x, y int) int {
	var v8 = v8eval.NewV8()
	v8.Eval("var add = (x, y) => x + y;", nil)

	var sum int
	v8.Call("add", []int{x, y}, &sum)
	return sum
}

Python

import v8eval

def add(x, y):
    v8 = v8eval.V8()
    v8.eval('var add = (x, y) => x + y;')
    return v8.call('add', [x, y])

Ruby

require 'v8eval'

def add(x, y)
  v8 = V8Eval::V8.new
  v8.eval('var add = (x, y) => x + y;')
  v8.call('add', [x, y])
end
