Hot questions for Using Cap'n Proto in javascript


Is there anybody using (or plan to use) capnp-js-plugin and capnp-js modules for nodejs? I cloned these repos and ran the tests, but they fail. Also when I just install capnp-js (via npm), the generated js code has syntax errors even for a simple schema:


using Uid=Int32;

struct User {
    id @0 :Uid;
    name @1 :Text;



To anybody trying to use these modules, I would suggest to wait a bit, and avoid them for the moment. I have opened an issue ( and I got a reply from the owner of the module that I should better wait for the next major release, which will be a completely rewritten version.
