Description

I just read an Infoworld article, where it was mentioned that Nginx plans rich support for JavaScript?:

We're planning JavaScript? configurations, using JavaScript? in [an] Nginx configuration. We plan to be more efficient on these [configurations], and we plan to develop a flexible application platform. You can use JavaScript? snippets inside configurations to allow more flexible handling of requests, to filter responses, to modify responses. Also, eventually, JavaScript? can be used as [an] application language for Nginx.

What are the plans for and progress towards JavaScript? support?

Very bad idea IMO. Nginx already has a mature scripting language with a massive user base called Lua but it appears the developers are hell bent on ignoring this and they are heading off chasing after this Javascript fad to be in with the cool node.js kids.

Please support Lua instead and build up on what is there rather than just following the herd.

Hello.

Please check njs project documentation:

This is work in progress though.
