Pitboss

Pitboss

A module for running untrusted code

Runs JS code and returns the last eval'd statement

code = """
  num = num % 5;
  num;
"""
pitboss = new Pitboss(code)
pitboss.run {num: 23}, (err, result) ->
  assert.equal 3, result

Handles processes that take too damn long

code = """
  while(true) { num % 3 };
"""
pitboss = new Pitboss code
  timeout: 2000
pitboss.run {num: 23}, (err, result) ->
  assert.equal "Timeout", err

Doesn't choke under pressure(or shitty code)

code = """
  What the fuck am I writing?
"""
pitboss = new Pitboss code
  timeout: 2000
pitboss.run {num: 23}, (err, result) ->
  assert.equal "VM Syntax Error: SyntaxError: Unexpected identifier", err

Doesn't handle this! But 'ulimit' does!

code = """
  str = ''
  while(true) { str = str + "Memory is a finite resource!" };
"""
pitboss = new Pitboss code
  timeout: 10000
pitboss.run {num: 23}, (err, result) ->
  assert.equal "Process failed", err

And since Pitboss forks each process, ulimit kills only the runner

npm loves you
