    Phoronix: Emscripten: Bang Out JavaScript From LLVM Bitcode

    There's an interesting new open-source LLVM-using project called Emscripten. Emscripten allows JavaScript to be automatically generated from LLVM bit-code. In other words, you can take C/C++ code-bases and easily translate them into JavaScript...

    What a coincidence

    Is somehow Phoronix is tracking my history(at least in one of the tab, its open most of the time)??? I just saw the project 1/2 hour ago and now its on Phoronix .

    Anyway I found the page from a web based python interpreter's page. Seems to me its a quite interesting project like Pyjama and Google Web Toolkit. As the world of application is moving to web platform, newer complex projects could use it for reusing existing library.

        It makes your python be interpreted in javascript. Yo dawg, we put an interpreter in your interpreter.

              Not exactly a new project... it's been going six months already, and has been attracting a bit of attention, particularly on Mozilla and Chrome-related blogs...

                emscripten is written in python.. it generates llvm bytecode then it compiles it with llvm... apparently emscripten itself has even been compiled into js so you can run it in your browser.

                  Emscriptem is pretty solid at translating C -> Javascript

                  But it can result in some pretty unoptimized code. Generally people will use it to translate their project into javascript, then go and tweak the result to speed it up.
