Swift to Javascript


(Mr Bee) #1

Hi all,
I wish I will be able write web app using Swift instead of JavaScript. It would be wonderfull if we could develop desktop app, mobile app, server-side app, and web app, all using Swift. It will be complete.
Is it possible that someday in the future we would be able to compile Swift code into JavaScript? Something that's like Microsoft's TypeScript. *finger crossed*
What do you think? Hello, Mr Chris Lattner? Are you listening?
Regards,
–Mr Bee


Swift as a replacement for JavaScript
(Austin Zheng) #2

The great thing about Swift being open-source is that anyone can help make it a better language!

Here's a good starting point: https://kripken.github.io/emscripten-site/index.html

Best,
Austin

I know there are some JS compilers, but I prefer something that is officially supported by Apple.

If you want something supported by Apple, the procedure is to propose it on the swift-evolution list. However, Swift has a very specific set of development priorities right now, so they are almost certainly not going to accept any new proposals for compiler backends or transpilation support for at least several months.

I know they are now busy preparing Swift 3 release. I don't think these days as an appropriate time to propose this idea into that list. I'm just brainstorming the idea in this list to see whether Swift to JS transpiler is a good idea to be seriously supported by Apple. :slight_smile:

I reply to all previous posts…
http://www.shiftjs.com is closer to what I want. But in its current state today, it's not yet ready for prime time. I've tried to paste my rather long but not complicated Swift program, and it failed.

https://kripken.github.io/emscripten-site/index.html is not really about Swift. Yes, it may be used as the basis for what I want but it requires some effort to actually create an excellent Swift to JS transpiler.

http://perfect.org https://github.com/IBM-Swift/Kitura https://realm.io/news/swift-summit-jorge-izquierdo-taylor-http-server-library/ I knew about these things and they're not what I want. These are server side app frameworks, not web front-end frameworks. They don't do JS.
All in all, they are not officially supported by Apple (except IBM's Kitura) which means their work likely won't be aligned with the official Swift features and progresses.

Emscripten will eventually have swift support.
