Duktape is an embeddable Javascript engine, with a focus on portability and compact footprint.

Duktape is easy to integrate into a C/C++ project: add duktape.c, duktape.h, and duk_config.h to your build, and use the Duktape API to call ECMAScript functions from C code and vice versa.



#!/usr/bin/env tclsh
package require duktape
package require duktape::oo

set duktapeObj [::duktape::oo::Duktape new]
$duktapeObj jsproc ::add {{a 0 number} {b 0 number}} {
    return a + b;
puts [add 1 2]
$duktapeObj jsmethod cos {{deg 0 number}} {
    return Math.cos(deg * Math.PI / 180);
puts [$duktapeObj cos 360]
$duktapeObj destroy
