DESCRIPTION:

Embed the Mozilla Rhino Javascript interpreter into Ruby

FEATURES/PROBLEMS:

  • Evaluate Javascript from with in Ruby

  • Embed your Ruby objects into the Javascript world

SYNOPSIS:

  1. Javascript goes into Ruby

  2. Ruby Objects goes into Javascript

  3. Our shark's in the Javascript!

include Rhino

# evaluate some simple javascript

Rhino::Context.open do |context|
  context.evaljs("7 * 6") #=> 42
end

# evaluate a ruby function from javascript

Rhino::Context.open do |context|
  scope = context.init_standard_objects
  scope["say"] = function {|word, times| word * times}
  context.evaljs("say("Hello", 3)") #=> HelloHelloHello
end

# Configure your embedding setup

Rhino::Context.open do |context|
  # Make your standard objects (Object, String, etc...) immutable
  scope = context.init_standard_objects(:sealed => true)
  context.evaljs("Object.prototype.toString = function() {}") # this is an error!

  #Turn on Java integration from javascript (probably a bad idea)
  scope = context.init_standard_objects(:java => true)
  context.evaljs("java.lang.System.exit()") #it's dangerous!
end
