This extension can be used to provide server-side and client-side form validation by executing the same JavaScript code at both places.

You can use function variables (jay!)

So the following works:

$add = function ($a, $b) {
    return $a + $b;
};
$v8 = new V8Js('PHP', array('add' => 'add'));
$result = $v8->executeString('PHP.add(1,2)');
var_dump($result);

yields indeed:
int(3)

v8js can be also used to render server-side javascript components (see: React.js).

Take note that just instantiating V8 class / binary .so will add at least 5ms to your app/script runtime.

Test from LAN (minimum network latency):

PHP 7.0.x w/o instantiating V8JS class: 1ms
PHP 7.0.x with V8JS object: 6-7ms

Running V8 engine v5.8.0

It's not a big deal, but comparing to PhalconPHP framework which adds almost 0 additional latency at runtime, V8JS adds 5-6 times more of latency/overhead.
