Microsoft announces experimental support for Node-ChakraCore on macOS


Back at the NodeSummit, Microsoft announced experimental support for Node-ChhakraCore on Linux. Today, the company has announced experimental support for Node-ChakraCore on macOS. With Node-ChakraCore, developers can use Node.js with ChakraCore. For those unfamiliar, ChakraCore is Microsoft’s open sourced, cross-platform JavaScript engine which is mainly found on Microsoft Edge in Windows 10. In a blog post today, Microsoft’s Arunesh Chandra stated:

“Bringing cross-platform support to Node-ChakraCore has been a key goal on our roadmap from the beginning. At NodeSummit we announced experimental support for Node-ChakraCore on Linux, and today bringing that same experimental support is available on macOS as well. These early experimental builds have been validated against Node.js unit tests as well as some synthetic tests. We are looking for help hardening Node-ChakraCore further, so if you run into bugs while trying out these builds, please let us know. Performance is a work in progress, with ongoing investments in the underlying ChakraCore engine.”

If you are interested in trying out Node-ChakraCore, you can grab the nightly builds here.
