    Join the chat at Build Status Build status npm version david-dm-status-badge david-dm-status-badge

    doppio is a double shot of espresso. In this case it's also a JVM written in TypeScript and an active research project of the PLASMA group at the University of Massachusetts.

    To try doppio now, head to the live demo page.

    To learn more, read some documentation, or read our academic paper (alt. link w/ no paywall) published at PLDI 2014!

    You can also get in touch via our mailing list or via the IRC channel #plasma-umass on Freenode.

    Getting & Building the Code

    Before attempting to build doppio, you must have the following installed:

    • Node v6.0 or higher
      • There is a bug that prevents you from compiling DoppioJVM with Node v4 and below.
    • NPM package grunt-cli installed globally
      • npm install -g grunt-cli
    • Java 8 JDK

    If you are on Windows, you will need the following installed:

    • Git (must be on your PATH)
    • Python (must be on your PATH)
    • A version of Visual Studio

    Run the following commands to build doppio. Note that your first time building may take some time, as the build script will download the entire Java Class Library.

    git clone
    cd doppio
    npm install
    grunt release      # For browser integration.
    grunt release-cli  # For command-line use.


    Run the full test suite using node.js:

    grunt test

    Run the full test suite in a web browser:

    grunt test-browser

    Run a specific test by invoking the test runner manually:

    node build/dev-cli/console/test_runner.js classes/test/Strings

    Command-line Usage

    Run doppio with node.js (after grunt release-cli):

    ./doppio classes.demo.Fib 7
    ./doppio -jar my_application.jar
    ./doppio -cp my/class/path SomeClass
