  • Nice find, I'd like to check it out to see how well it works. Personally though, I think there is a lot of value in having Espruino on the ESP8266 rather than just javascript.

    A large part of the work Gordon has done is making it suitable for running on small devices. Even if you somehow got all of node.js onto an ESP8266, you'd struggle to do what you wanted with the hardware limitations. You'd have to do what Gordon has done, create modules for everything, that are suitable for the hardware.

    Also, looks like smartjs doesn't have a module system working yet, there'll probably be other key things missing too.
