Nodejs compatibility

HopScript fully supports the Nodejs module system and the Nodejs asynchronous programming model (i.e., the asynchronous event loop).

Supported modules

Hop.js supports the following Node.js modules:

Notable differences

The default behaviour of Hop.js is to launch an HTTP server. To mimic Node.js, use the --no-server option to disable the launch of the Hop.js built-in server, and automatically terminate the process when all events are processed.

Hop.js eval function does not access the lexical scope surrounding the evalcall. For Example:

function foo() {
  var x = false;
  return( eval( 'x' ));

console.log( foo() );

foo() would return falsewith Node.js, and truewith Hop.js.
