Now ASM.JS is available for NodeJS Applications

ASM.JS, an extraordinarily optimizable, low-level subset of JavaScript. Now it’s available for Node applications. The latest JXcore (Github) embeds SpiderMonkey in addition to V8 JavaScript engine. As you might know V8 was able to run ASM.JS codes without much problem but there was no optimization or performance gain in place (actually it is even slower). As a result, it never made any sense to use ASM.JS code on a Node.JS application.

Since JXcore has SpiderMonkey in place (in addition to V8), now it’s time to show a basic sample.
