Node.js Frontend


  • 100% open source
  • absolutely no ads, analytics, or any other untoward activity
  • releases include pre-build APKs



  • packages Node.js as a native library
  • adds a frontend that makes it easy to configure and run JS apps from external storage
  • each JS app runs in a new process, which is killed after the JS app exits
  • each JS app categorized under "fork to separate process":
    • runs in a foreground Service
    • has a static process name
  • each JS app categorized under "exec in same process":
    • runs in a background Service
    • shares the same static process name
    • owns the process until either:
      • the JS app exits
      • the process is killed by the user through the UI
      • the Android Activity is stopped

limitations imposed by design:
  • since each JS app categorized under "fork to separate process" is directly associated with a distinct Service class
    • a finite number of Service classes need to be declared in "AndroidManifest.xml"
    • this number determines the maximum number of JS apps that can be added to this category
    • this number is presently set to: 20
      • if this number proves too small, it would be trivial to increase in a later version

  • 32-bit: 19 (Android 4.4)
  • 64-bit: 21 (Android 5.0)

  • v1.0.0
    • node v12.19.0
