About GJS

What is GJS?

GJS (sometimes called GNOME JavaScript) is a programming environment comparable to Node.js. It provides bindings to the GNOME ecosystem, allowing users to build power, native applications.

Cool! What is under the hood?

GJS is built on the SpiderMonkey JavaScript engine. It utilizes GObject Introspection to provide access to the GNOME APIs using EcmaScript 6-level JavaScript.
