This reminded me of Nodyn[1], a Node-compatible JVM implementation, which it appears is no longer actively developed.

[1]: https://github.com/nodyn/nodyn#notice

No, Nodyn tried to be fully compatible with NodeJs. PurpleJS is just an alternative - the scope is not to be fully compatible. Also Nodyn has it's own implementation of Javascript. PurpleJS uses Nashorn as the Javascript engine.

Registration is open for Startup School 2019. Classes start July 22nd.
