I am pleased to announce SilkJS, a V8 based Swiss Army Knife (and HTTP server).
SilkJS currently compiles for Linux and Mac OSX, but should port trivially to any flavor of Unix. It was originally written for Ubuntu Linux and ported to OSX (a FreeBSD flavored Unix) in under 2 hours.
So what is it?
Running SilkJS is as simple as:
SilkJS comes with a number of library interfaces built-in. These include console I/O, file system I/O, the gd2 graphics library, MySQL, ncurses, networking, and process management (fork, wait, etc.).
nodejs.org is served by ngnix, not by nodejs. SilkJS can be viewed at http://silkjs.org/ and it is entirely served by SilkJS itself.
SilkJS may be downloaded and used freely from github at http://github.com/mschwartz/SilkJS.
Please see the Wiki http://github.com/mschwartz/SilkJS/wiki, it contains more details about building SilkJS, benchmarks, example programs, etc. Of particular interest to us ExtJS developers is the ORM, which fully supports ExtJS DataStore.
I've started a Google Group for supporting SilkJS at http://groups.google.com/group/silkjs
