Hi Everybody,

I am trying to embed SpiderMonkey in one of my application, however I wasn't able to figure out the documentation.

The documentation is not complete, nor developer friendly.

Most function are not documented.

For different version of the engine the documentation is on the single page, so the documentation for a function in SpiderMonkey31, share the documentation page with the same function of SPiderMonkey38: 
https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Mozilla/Projects/SpiderMonkey/JSAPI_reference/JS::Evaluate

It is not clear how to obtain the necessary object to run functions.

There are no example nor guides.

SpiderMonkey seems really great, however it is pointless if only 10 hackers know how it works and how to use it.

I would like to contribute to this aspect, but honestly I cannot afford it.

Best Regards
