What The Fact is Tamarin

Posted by Charles | October 7, 2007 .

The short answer is, Tamarin is ActionScript virtual machine that its code is used by Adobe within the Flash player. Pretty significant, right. There are more.

Tamarin Project is one of mozilla projects. The goal of the “Tamarin” project is to implement a high-performance, open source implementation of the ECMAScript 4th edition (ES4) language specification. The Tamarin virtual machine will be used by Mozilla within SpiderMonkey, the core JavaScript engine embedded in Firefox®, and other products based on Mozilla technology. The Tamarin virtual machine currently implements the ECMAScript 3rd edition language standard that is the basis for JavaScript, Adobe ActionScript, and Microsoft Jscript, plus some of the new language features proposed in the ECMAScript 4th edition specification.

Also there are other efforts going on with Tamarin:

  • ActionMoneky – A project to integrate Tamarin with SpiderMoney, which is the name of the JavaScript engine from mozilla.org written completely in C.
  • IronMoneky – Map IronRuby and IronPython to Tamarin. Imagine someday you can run either Ruby and Python within Flash. That’ll be cool!
  • ScreamingMoney – integration of Tamarin as a <script> engine in other browsers, starting with IE.

mozilla projects start playing increasingly important role in the RIA space, not mention the relate coming Firefox 3 as strong RIA platform contender. I think this is all good.
