Microsoft has announced the release of a new ChakraCore preview with N-API

support on Windows, macOS, and Linux.


														
							

ChakraCore, which is based on Node.js 8, was developed by Microsoft to extend Node.js to Windows 10 IoT Core. The project grew in scope as the developers realised the need to address problems with the Node.js ecosystem across platforms.

At NodeSummit 2016, Microsoft unveiled support for the Node-ChakraCore interpreter and runtime on Linux and macOS. Since its announcement, Microsoft added support for full JIT compilation and concurrent and partial GC on x64 to both macOS and Ubuntu Linux 14.04 and higher to reach feature parity across platforms.

Now the company is adding to ChakraCore’s feature set with support for N-API (Node.js API) which Microsoft’s development team helped to design and develop as part of a community effort.
