This is a PHP extension for Google's V8 Javascript engine

Minimum requirements

  • V8 JavaScript Engine library version 2.5.8 (trunk)

    V8 is Google's open source JavaScript engine. V8 is written in C++ and is used in Google Chrome, the open source browser from Google. V8 implements ECMAScript as specified in ECMA-262, 5th edition, and runs on Windows (XP or newer), Mac OS X (10.5 or newer), and Linux systems that use IA-32, x64, or ARM processors. V8 can run standalone, or can be embedded into any C++ application. You can find more information here:

  • PHP 5.3.3+ (non-ZTS build preferred) Note: V8 engine is not natively thread safe and this extension has not been designed to work around it either yet and might or might not work properly with ZTS enabled PHP. :)

    // Registers persistent context independent global Javascript extension.
    // NOTE! These extensions exist until PHP is shutdown and they need to be registered before V8 is initialized.
