Installation

npm install v8-flags

Contributions

I am doing my best to document each flag, but am hoping for others especially the ones with insider knowledge to supply useful comments.

I made this as easy as possible, all you have to do is add/edit the .md file with the name of the flag in this folder and run npm run flag-doc to update all documentation with the added details.

API

The different versions of v8 and thus Node.js have different flags and therefore the API fluctuates somewhat between the versions. The API is generated on install to match the Node.js version you are using.

The flags for the currently latest Node.js versions 0.8, 0.10 and 0.11 are documented in the following locations:

The below API allows to access and configure these flags.
