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

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.
