After using Rhino for server side javascript at work, I can say I somewhat like server side javascript.  Others like Steve were already convinced a long time ago.

However, I don't really like being tied into the whole Java world because of it.

When Google released their v8 Javascript Engine earlier this year, I always wanted to build an Apache Module for it.

This afternoon I had some time, and so I created mod_v8.

It doesn't do much beyond a Hello World right now, but it is as simple as this:

ap.write("Hello World!");

I'm not sure if I will spend time making it a proper project, I really want to spend more time on making httpd 2.4 before getting too distracted with shiny things....
