node.js with chakra

So, a pretty exciting thing happened recently!

One of the projects that I've been working on for the last year or so @MSFT, a fork of node.js that uses the Chakra JavaScript engine instead of v8, was released and open sourced on github!

It is all available here: https://github.com/microsoft/node

You can read some more info about it here: http://blogs.windows.com/buildingapps/2015/05/12/bringing-node-js-to-windows-10-iot-core

This work brings node.js to 2 new places:
- ARM devices running Windows
- Modern Windows store apps.

And if you're curious to see what it takes to replace v8 with Chakra, the shim layer for the v8 API that uses Chakra is available here: https://github.com/Microsoft/node/tree/ch0.12.2/deps/chakrashim

Cheers,
