Javascript is a scripting language which is part of HTML5 and is the programming language of the web (node.js etc...)

Most web programmers are using this language to create web pages or web servers. Javascript is now coming to the microcontroller world and STM32. This is the new "Basic" language and runs interpreted, similarly to Python which is mostly used from scientific audience.



Duktape, Espruino and Jerryscript are Javascript engines which can run on STM32.


Hint: Did you know that even though JS is not so "pure" language, some strict languages compile in JS? Such is Clojure, a LISP derivative...


Another popular programming language from scientific community is Python:
