As the name suggests, using JavaScript anyone should at least in theory be able to extend the engine’s utility to a variety of purposes, though the project was very much started with Minecraft in mind. Voxel.js was apparently brought about by the developer’s surprise at ¬†Minecraft’s lack of an API and closed code base. The developer welcomes contributions to the project and is even hoping to have it running in an iOS browser before long.
