Involved Projects and Packages

Packages, runtimes, interpreters, utilities and compilers for using the JavaScript programming language. This project also includes packages for using WebAssembly.

A collection of WebAssembly build tools. It includes wasm-opt for optimizing and reducing wasm binaries.

Deno comes with a linter, a code formatter and a unit test runner. Other features include language server protocol and WebGPU support. It has a standard library with limited compatibility with Node.js.

A JavaScript bundler and minifier built for speed.

Espruino is a JavaScript interpreter built for Microcontrollers. It is designed for devices having as little as 128kB Flash and 8kB RAM.

Hermes is JavaScript engine and toolchain. Originally optimized for running React Native on Android, it also supports iOS.

Another JavaScript Runtime, currently built on rusty_v8 from the deno project.

mjs is a restricted JavaScript engine designed for compute environments with limited resources

QuickJS is a new Javascript compiler with standard library, a repl, and static binary builds. It supports the ES2020 specification including modules, asynchronous generators, proxies and BigInt. It also has full Annex B support (legacy web compatibility). The garbage collector uses reference counting and cycle removal. There is optional support for mathematical extensions such as BigDecimal, BigFloat and operator overloading.

Do not install. Only used as the first stage for building deno, and for development/debugging purposes.

Deno offers an alternate build, where the v8 engine is referenced through a static binary dump.

This package exists just to test rusty_v8 in isolation. It will generate binaries that include full debug symbols/tables.

Users should refer to the deno package for an integrated build without development symbols.

Currently TinyJS supports:

* Variables, Arrays, Structures
* JSON parsing and output
* Functions
* Calling C/C++ code from JavaScript
* Objects with Inheritance (not fully implemented)

WABT (we pronounce it "wabbit") is a suite of tools for WebAssembly intended for use in (or for development of) toolchains or other systems that want to manipulate WebAssembly files. Unlike the WebAssembly spec interpreter (which is written to be as simple, declarative and "speccy" as possible), they are written in C/C++ and designed for easier integration into other systems.

Unlike Binaryen these tools do not aim to provide an optimization platform or a higher-level compiler target; instead they aim for full fidelity and compliance with the spec (e.g. 1:1 round-trips with no changes to instructions).

Wasp is an under-development C++ library designed to make it easy to work with WebAssembly modules. Unlike tools like wabt, it is designed to be used as a library.

It has a bundled tool, named "wasp."

Wabt may come to rely on it at some point (or vice-versa).


devel:tools / fakechroot Maintainer

fakechroot runs a command in an environment were is additional possibility to use
chroot(8) command without root privileges. This is useful for allowing users to
create own chrooted environment with possibility to install another packages
without need for root privileges.

devel:tools:building / entr Maintainer

A utility for running arbitrary commands when files change.

SML/NJ is an interactive compiler for Standard ML (Meta Language).

It is based on the 1997 edition of the language.

graphics / fly Maintainer

Fly allows you to create images with script statements. It uses gdlib.

home:avindra Maintainer

A deluge of software. The good ones should move to factory.

Unpopular ones remain archived here until the end of time.

multimedia:apps / ncmpcpp Maintainer

Ncmpcpp is almost exact clone of ncmpc but it contains some new features
ncmpc doesn't have. It's been also rewritten from scratch in C++. Lack of
some function (eg. tag editor) eventually pushed me to rewrite it as
ncmpcpp and include these functions in it.

multimedia:apps / screenkey Maintainer

A screencast tool to display your keys

multimedia:libs / pamix Maintainer

ncurses/curses pulseaudio mixer in c++ similar to pavucontrol

newsboat is an open-source RSS/Atom feed reader for text terminals. It runs
on Linux, FreeBSD, Mac OS X and other Unix-like operating systems.
newsboat's configurability and vast number of features make it a
perfect choice for people that need a slick and fast feed reader that can
be completely controlled via keyboard.

shells / dash Maintainer

DASH is a POSIX-compliant implementation of /bin/sh that aims to be as small as possible without sacrificing speed where possible.

shells / rc Maintainer Bugowner

This is not the original rc shell by Tom Duff.

It is a re-implementation of it by Byron Ratikiz and community.

utilities / cpulimit Maintainer

cpulimit is a simple program that attempts to limit the CPU usage of a process
(expressed in percentage, not in CPU time). This is useful to control batch
jobs when you don't want they eat too much CPU. It does not act on the nice
value or other scheduling priority details, but on the real CPU usage. Also, it
is able to adapt itself to the overall system load, dynamically and quickly.
