JS Engine Usage


Hi everyone,

One thing I’ve been puzzling over lately is trying to understand what Javascript engine is being used by Electron. I know it uses Chrome, Node.js and v8. I know that both Chrome and Node.js also use v8. And finally I know that there are two processes - the main and renderer processes.

So now my question:

If using Electron v1.5.0 as an example. Are both the main and renderer scripts using the independent version of v8 (5.4.500.43)? Or is the main process using the version of v8 from Node.js and the renderer process using the version of v8 from Chrome?




Only one version of V8 is used, the one in Chromium.


Thanks enlight.
