    Duktape Javascript Virtual Machine

    NPM

    This project is a wrapper around the Duktape Embedded Javascript Engine compiled to webassembly/asmjs.

    • Airtight sandbox for unsafe js code.
    • Kills unresponsive scripts after 10 seconds (Prevents while(true) {} lock up).
    • Restricted code (impossible to access node.js or window methods and objects).
    • Runs in modern web browsers using Webassembly with asmjs fallback.
    • Runs on anything that supports NodeJS 8 or greater (zero native code/compilation).
    • VM supports ES5 and earlier javascript with async and sync exection.
    • Supports bidirectional messaging and asynchronous operations.
    • Only 110KB gzipped.

    Quick Example

    DuktapeVM().then((vm) => {
        vm.eval("2 + 2") // returns "4";
        vm.eval("var testObj = {foo: 'bar'};");
        vm.eval("testObj.foo") // returns "bar";
     
        vm.evalAsync(` 
            setTimeout(function() {
                _success("hello, world!");
            }, 1000);`, 
        ).then((res) => {
            console.log(res) // hello, world!
        })
    });

    Installation

    npm i duktape-vm --save

    Using in Typescript/Babel project:

    import { DuktapeVM } from "duktape-vm";

    Using in Node:

    const DuktapeVM = require("duktape-vm").DuktapeVM;

    To use directly in the browser, drop ONE of the tags below into your <head>.

    The library will attach DuktapeVM to window/global, allowing you to access it anywhere in your code.

    Virtual Machine Available Globals

    The vm doesn't expose any platform specific methods like window, document, global, fetch or anything like that. Only a subset of APIs are available: setInterval, setTimeout, clearTimeout, clearInterval, Date, Array, String, Number, Object, RegExp, JSON, parseInt, isNaN and Promise.

    Additional methods and variables can be provided by passing them into the DuktapeVM constructor.

    Setup & Usage

    DuktapeVM(`
        // Provide data and methods to VM instance
        // vm_breakout() allows you to eval code in the parent window/global space.
        // vm_breakout is only available here, it's not available in subsequent "vm.eval" or "vm.evalAsync" calls.
     
        // all methods should be attached to the exports object
        exports.console = function(message) {
            // print to parent console
            vm_breakout("console.log('" + message + "');")
        };
        
        // you can also inline js libraries here
        // global scope is available on the variable "self"
    `).then((vm) => {
        // vm contains the javascript vm reference
     
        // Standard eval
        let value = vm.eval("2 + 2"); // value contains "4";
     
        // Eval with arguments
        // arguments are passed as array called "args"
        // when you use arguments you muse use "return" if you want to get the value back.
        vm.eval(`return args[0] + args[1]`, [2, 3]); // returns 5
     
        // Messaging API
        vm.eval(`
            exports.onMessage(function(msg) {
                // got message from parent!
            })
            
            // send message to parent
            exports.message("some message to parent");
        `);
     
        // Send message to vm
        vm.message("this is a message to the vm");
     
        // Listen for messages from vm
        vm.onMessage((msg) => {
            console.log("Got message from vm: " + msg);
        });
     
        // Async eval
        // use _success and _error as callbacks 
        vm.evalAsync(`
            setTimeout(function() {
     
                _success("done!");
                // _error("something went wrong!");
     
            }, 1000);
        `).then((result) => {
            console.log(result) // "done"
        });
     
        // Async Eval with arguments
        // arguments are passed in as "args" array
        vm.evalAsync(`
            setTimeout(function() {
     
                _success(args[0]);
                // _error("something went wrong!");
            }, 1000);
        `, ["hello world!"]).then((result) => {
            console.log(result) // "hello world!"
        });
     
        // reload vm
        // dumps the stack, makes a new one, then runs the init code again
        vm.reset();
     
        // destroy vm
        vm.destroy();
    })
