A Tale of Two Runtimes

A session at Strange Loop 2011

Tuesday 20th September, 2011

10:30am to 11:20am (CST)

Server side JavaScript is exploding, and web applications written with NodeJS now have two JavaScript runtimes: Browser and Web Server.

I’d like to introduce Mojito, Yahoo!’s nascent web presentation framework that takes advantage of these two runtimes in a unique way. The core of the web framework deploys itself from the server runtime into the browser runtime, allowing Mojito programmers to write web modules that can be executed agnostically within either runtime. This opens up interesting client-server integration possibilities, and ways to decide at runtime in which context user code will be executed.

In this talk, I’ll introduce the concepts behind this framework and talk about the architecture and design behind it. I’ll also discuss the possibilities it introduces for bringing client and server closer together.
