Portenta H7 and Javascript

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:

  1. low.js | Node.js for microcontrollers

  2. GitHub - cesanta/elk: A low footprint JavaScript engine for embedded systems

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

  4. https://jerryscript.net/

  5. 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 :confused: ).

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. 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.
