JavaScript GameBoy Emulation Tutorial

This GameBoy emulation tutorial by Imran Nazar teaches you how to build a GameBoy emulator in browser-based JavaScript. It’s incredibly well presented and a lot of fun.

When I was studying at university we had to build an emulator as an early in-depth programming assignment. It was only a simple RISC CPU, but it was interesting nonetheless. GameBoy Emulation in JavaScript features graphics, CPU, memory — all the basics of what makes the GameBoy tick in the language you love.


Handlebars.js by the prolific Yehuda Katz builds on Mustache to add paths, block helpers, partials, and a Node-based compiler. It looks like yet another great templating tool for your rich interface JavaScript projects.

Katz has posted a good overview/tutorial in Announcing Handlebars.js.
