Jsi is a small javascript interpreter for embedded-C development.

Unlike C++ javascript-centric solutions such as Node-js, Jsi is a C-centric glue language based on the venerable Tcl API, including:

Jsi functions can also have types and defaults, eg:

function foo (a:number, b:string=''):number {
   return a+1;
}

While incompatible with Ecmascript, types can greatly improve maintainability for embedded development.
