Writing your own JavaScript Engine

CEans,

I stumbled upon following posts -

On Google Chrome, V8 engine, and Webkit vs. Gecko

Master’s Thesis


Now, writing your own JavaScript engine is no child's play. But a curious person that I am, I want to know what exactly is a JavaScript engine, what knowledge does it take to write one [probably, SmallTalk, C/C++, Virtualization etc.]

In all, I want to know about efforts & knowledge required to build a web browser from ground up [you know, without copy-pasting anyone else's code].

*Bump*

I have these, rather BIG, plans of building a web browser as a CE Project.

Anyone interested?

I would have loved to participate but I'm afraid I don't know much about open technology languages.

The project is not going to start anytime soon. We'll have our own team working on it from a some specific geographic location.

I just want to know if we have CEans who can delve inside the core of web browsers 😉

No one wants to share ideas in this thread? I guess its high time we go beyond 'online reservation systems' and 'process monitors'.

Here's some exciting stuff for computer science engineers? Anyone?

We've lots of super cool CS engineers on CE. I bet its going to be tough. But at least, we all can brainstorm 😁

You're referring to very old posts. Looks like the blogs and pages have been moved or deleted.
