A nifty javascript sandbox for node.js

Fork me on Github



Be sure to check out example/example.js in the repo.

var s = new Sandbox() '1 + 1 + " apples"', function( output ) {
  // output.result == "2 apples"


Basic syntax: code, hollaback )

code is the string of Javascript to be executed.

hollaback is a function, and it's called with a single argument, output.

output is an object with two properties: result and console. The result property is an inspected string of the return value of the code. The console property is an array of all console output.

For example, given the following code:

function add( a, b ){
  console.log( a )
  console.log( b )
  return a + b
add( 20, 22 )

The resulting output object is:

{ result: "42"
, console: [ "20", "22" ]

Installation & Running

Let's get it! The easiest way is through npm:

npm install sandbox

Or if you'd like to play with the code, see the examples, run the tests, what-the-fuck-ever...

git clone git://

And run some examples:

node example/example.js


To run the tests you'll have to install async_testing, then simply run the spec files from node.

npm install async_testing
node spec/sandbox.spec.js
