Napa.js

Napa.js is a multi-threaded JavaScript runtime built on V8, which was originally designed to develop highly iterative services with non-compromised performance in Bing. As it evolves, we find it useful to complement Node.js in CPU-bound tasks, with the capability of executing JavaScript in multiple V8 isolates and communicating between them. Napa.js is exposed as a Node.js module, while it can also be embedded in a host process without Node.js dependency.

Installation

Install the latest stable version:

npm install napajs

Other options can be found in Build Napa.js.

Quick Start

const napa = require('napajs'); const zone1 = napa.zone.create('zone1', { workers: 4 }); // Broadcast code to all 4 workers in 'zone1'. zone1.broadcast('console.log("hello world");'); // Execute an anonymous function in any worker thread in 'zone1'. zone1.execute( (text) =\> text, ['hello napa']) .then((result) =\> { console.log(result.value); });

More examples: * Estimate PI in parallel* Max sub-matrix of 1s with layered parallelism* Parallel Quick Sort* Recursive Fibonacci with multiple JavaScript threads* Synchronized loading

Features

  • Node.js compatible module architecture with NPM support.
  • API for object transportation, object sharing and synchronization across JavaScript threads.
  • API for pluggable logging, metric and memory allocator.
  • Distributed as a Node.js module, as well as supporting embed scenarios.
