  1. YES !!!

    Let’s add to the teetering heap of technologies, frameworks, libraries and formats that javascript is supposed to integrate with and act as the front end for ! Let’s turn JavaFX into javascript because… why again.?. oh never mind, it’s the web everybody! There’s gold in them thar hills!

    I’m actually starting to feel sorry for javascript at this point, the poor little guy It’s like that little dog in How The Grinch Stole Christmas whom the Grinch slapped a pair of antlers on before forcing it to drag the huge sled, stuffed to overflowing with stolen Whoville Christmas presents, back to the Grinch’s mountain encampment It was never really meant for any of this.

    Well whatever the future is, it’s good to know that it will be written in javascript, the 23 year old, 10 day project of the (no snark here) brilliant developer, Brendan Eich.

    This is truly a standard that perpetuates itself merely because it perpetuates itself. That and no one involved has any incentive (or suffcient vision) to jump off the javascript train.

    Our job is to defend and extend robust, fully capable GUI toolkits like JavaFX so the future of client development looks and functions more like, you know, the future, and less like a dog that’s been taught to walk on its hind quarters, where the amazing thing about it is not that it’s been done well, but then it’s been done at all.
