Oni StratifiedJS (previously Apollo)
Filed under miscellaneousShow All
Oni StratifiedJS (previously known as "Oni Apollo") is the reference StratifiedJS Language implementation + a supporting set of modules. It runs server-side (based on NodeJS) as well as client-side (cross-browser).
How to run/install
For server-side use, you can just execute the
sjsexecutable (provided you have nodejs installed).
For client-side use, include
stratified.jsin your html and write sjs code in
For a complete sjs web app stack, check out conductance.io.
Users of the bower or npm package managers can install the
stratifiedjspackage using either of these tools.
npmusers should install globally (
npm install -g) to add the

How to build
Everything is already pre-built.
No need to compile anything unless you change something in the src/ directory. In that case, you can use the src/build/make-sjs tool to reassemble stratified.js and stratified-node.js. The build process should work on most unixy environments out of the box (in particular it requires CPP - the C preprocessor).
Considerations for client-side use
Note that, by default, if you load standard library modules using code such as
var http = require('sjs:http');
the module will be requested from
This location can only be inferred if you load stratified.js in the 'normal' way. If you rename stratified.js to something else, or you don't load it through a <script> tag, you'll need to manually configure the 'sjs' hub before you can make calls such as
To (re-)configure the 'sjs hub', you can use code such as this:
require.hubs.unshift( ["sjs:", "http://code.mydomain.com/sjs-mirror/modules/"] ]); // all modules addressed as 'sjs:' will now be loaded from the // location above.
Note that many browsers cannot load modules over the
file:protocol. You can use a standard web server to serve stratified.js and the modules/ directory, or load stratified.js & modules/ from http://code.onilabs.com/ as described at onilabs.com/stratifiedjs.
