Portenta H7 and Javascript

Probably a bit early in the development process, but I am very curious about what the plan is for running Javascript on the M4 core? My research shows up a few methods but I am not sure how stable or user friendly they are:

2. https://github.com/cesanta/elk (https://github.com/cesanta/elk)

3. http://www.espruino.com/ (http://www.espruino.com/)    (interesting: for the thingy52 (http://www.espruino.com/binaries/travis/master/))

4. https://jerryscript.net/ (https://jerryscript.net/)

5. https://tessel.io/ (https://tessel.io/)


I have some fairly good research skills, if anyone wants to point me in a certain direction I can probably be useful (or a pain :smiley-confuse: ).  


I am converting to Arduino an entire High School Robotics course that I have designed and student tested for several years.

I'm interested in this too. The ability to use micropython/javascript is what originally interested me in the board. Hopefully they come out with something soon.

I think the micropython tutorial is on it's way and would be posted on the Arduino PRO tutorials using this link https://www.arduino.cc/pro/tutorials/portenta-h7 (https://www.arduino.cc/pro/tutorials/portenta-h7). It is not yet there. I really hope a javascript tutorial is going to be posted but I am not going to hold my breath.
