nginScript is available in two modules:

Both modules are not built by default, they should be either compiled from the sources or installed as a Linux package.

Building from the sources

The repository with nginScript sources can be cloned with the following command: (requires Mercurial client):

hg clone http://hg.nginx.org/njs

Then the modules should be compiled using the --add-module configuration parameter:

./configure --add-module=path-to-njs/nginx

The modules can also be built as dynamic:

./configure --add-dynamic-module=path-to-njs/nginx
