I want to excute javascript file without a browser. I found Mozila Rhino, but I wonder that how can I config sublime text or another text editor run my .js file directly (i.e without run command line).

Linux solution:

Create a bash file: /usr/sbin/rhino

java -cp /opt/rhino1_7R3/js.jar:. "$@"

Note: /opt/rhino1_7R3 is where I installed my rhino — you can extract it where you please.

On Sublime, go to Tools » Build System » New Build System. Paste the following and save the file.

    "cmd": ["rhino", "$file"],
    "file_regex": "^[ ]*File \"(...*?)\", line ([0-9]*)",
    "selector": "source.javascript"
