jslinux (http://bellard.org/jslinux/) compatibility layer for Node.

branch: master
README.md

node-jslinux

This project provides a simple Node.js compatibility layer for the excellent jslinux project, an x86 emulator for running Linux, written in JavaScript. jslinux was created by Fabrice Bellard, and is not open source, so you'll have to obtain a copy from the website.

Installation

  • Install via npm install jslinux, or download the dependencies yourself.
  • Run the jslinux executable, or load the "jslinux" module and call the boot() function.
  • If the terminal is in raw mode, hit Ctrl-C four times in a row to exit.

Example

$ node
> require("jslinux").boot()
[Node.js switching to raw mode. Hit Ctrl-C four times in a row to exit.]
{ base: '/usr/local/lib/node/.npm/jslinux/0.0.1/package/external/',
  terminal: 
   { handler: [Function: Jf],
       ...
  boot: [Function] }
