"javascriptcore console.log" Answer’s

0

You do have to provide your own console log if using the JavaScriptCore framework from Mac or IOS.

Here is some code that worked for me (sorry it is Objective-C rather than standard C as per your code above):

JSContext *javascriptContext  = [[JSContext alloc] init];
javascriptContext[@"consoleLog"] = ^(NSString *message) {
    NSLog(@"Javascript log: %@",message);
};

Then you use it from Javascript by:

consoleLog("My debug message");

Note that I have tried to define a vararg version (log taking multiple parameters) but I couldn't get this to work correctly across the framework api.

Note that this solution uses features introduced with the new Objective-C API for the JavaScriptCore.framework introduced at the same time as IOS 7. If you are looking for an intro to this well-integrated bridge between Objective-C and Javascript, check out the 2013 WWDC introduction "Integrating JavaScript into Native Apps" session on Apple's developer network: https://developer.apple.com/videos/wwdc/2013/?id=615

Update to answer:

For those of you wanting to maximise your javascript code reuse without refactoring, I've managed to get a version working that declares a log of the form console.log() :

JSContext *javascriptContext  = [[JSContext alloc] init];
[javascriptContext evaluateScript:@"var console = {}"];
javascriptContext[@"console"][@"log"] = ^(NSString *message) {
    NSLog(@"Javascript log: %@",message);
};

Then you use it from Javascript by:

console.log("My debug message");
