[Seaside] Graphing in Javascript

And there's the babel thing in croquet - I ported it to Squeak proper but it isn't really complete - it chokes on a number of common constructs.

Of course, if you want to *run* JS, I think building a spidermonkey plugin/bridge is the way to go.

Not sure if this is what you're referring to, but there is Smee (Smalltalk ECMAScript Engine) which is a Javascript-to-VW-Bytecode compiler. It would be a bit of work to port to Squeak, since does some pretty low-level things for performance.

On the other hand, it does have a nice Javascript parser, AST and visitor, which might be interesting to use. Just that portion would probably be fairly easy to port, and it might provide the basis for a nice way to programmatically create Javascript.
